LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) means an easier periodontal treatment—no scalpels and no sutures. This method of restoring you to better oral health also means no recovery time. With this technology, you can have the treatment and go on with your day.

Several years ago, your dentist in Charleston, SC was the first to use this innovative treatment in the state! And countless patients have been very pleased with the ease of therapy ever since.

About Periodontal Disease in Charleston, SC

Periodontal disease is a serious oral health condition that can lead to tooth loss and even a heart attack or stroke. This condition has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis.  

Signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Gum redness
  • Gum swelling
  • Toothaches
  • Loose teeth
  • Bad breath

Periodontal disease is a lasting but treatable condition. Your dentist can restore you to better oral health, save your smile, and lower your risks for related conditions and complications.

Why We Use LANAP

In some dental offices, treatment requires working below the gum line, scraping, cutting, and even stitches.

In our dental office, we want nothing but the best for our patients, which is why we use LANAP. We understand that periodontal treatment can be scary, but this technology means it doesn’t have to be.

This innovative laser treatment is better for our patients than traditional methods, and that makes all the difference to our compassionate team.
