Laser – LANAP Gum Surgery Procedure
Laser Dentistry has become a necessity for dentistry and revolutionized the way periodontists view gum disease treatment. Modern Periodontics is the largest Periodontal specialty office providing the LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), or Laser Gum Surgery in Jacksonville.
In order to address bone and attachment loss from periodontal disease, sometimes a cleaning isn’t sufficient. Periodontal laser surgery is a minimally invasive technique that allows us to stabilize our patients’ periodontal health. It can also minimize post-operative soreness and sensitivity.
The LANAP protocol has become one of the best dental treatment approaches to decrease a patient’s fear of the dentist. Dental Lasers have increased the standard of care for periodontal treatment.
This procedure is performed using the only laser system approved by the FDA for regenerative periodontal disease treatment. The Millenium PerioLase MVP-7 and LANAP are backed by over 10 years of clinical research. They have passed human histologic studies showing reversed bone loss, new tissue attachment, bone regeneration, and improvement in all clinical parameters studied. All of our doctors are trained and certified by the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD) and have performed many prior treatments.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, affects more than half of the adult population to varying degrees. If the gum disease has progressed far enough, the patient may require regenerative surgery or, more specifically, the laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP).
When you need LANAP gum surgery, you can depend on our certified periodontists for quality treatment. Backed by more than 25 years of experience, Drs. Kuznia and Storch offer the latest in regenerative dentistry. We are happy to review all of your treatment options, including local anesthetics, sedation, and more.

Laser Gum Surgery: More About LANAP
The effects of gum disease can be so mild that you may not notice much discomfort at all. Gum tissue degenerates slowly over time, though, creating gaps between your teeth and gums, increasing the chance of bacterial infections. When the gum disease progresses far enough, it can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss and other discomforts.
Seeing an experienced periodontist for treatment can prevent further disease and restore and maintain affected tissue. The LANAP dental procedure does not cut the gums. Cutting the gums can cause further receding gums, LANAP lasers allow for better results by performing the procedure without any incisions.
LANAP gum surgery involves grafting new tissue between the teeth and gums. The graft is then absorbed by the body, encouraging the healthy growth of new gum and bone tissue over the graft. With proper maintenance, you can enjoy a happy and healthy mouth.
Our professionals are happy to talk to you about what you can expect as far as treatment and recovery are concerned. How long your recovery takes and how many repeat visits you need depends on your unique condition. Expect beautiful results, quality treatment, and a happy and healthy smile.
