LANAP® Laser Treatment
Picture this: You are brushing your teeth on a Monday morning before work. Everything is going fine until you spit out the spent toothpaste and notice something red. That discoloration is not part of the toothpaste; you have bleeding gums, a small sign of a larger gum disease problem. Statistics show that almost 80 percent of Americans suffer from gum disease do not seek treatment. Dr. Colin Yoshida is a Fremont gum disease treatment dentist, certified in the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, a radically-new technique that stops bleeding gums in their tracks.
With the technological advancements found in LANAP®, Dr. Yoshida is able to not only treat your bleeding gums, but can also help stimulate bone regeneration around the teeth and gums that need the most work. Controlled by an Android™ tablet, LANAP® utilizes the PerioLase® MVP-7™ as its main tool. The laser is specially-programmed to eliminate all of your bad tissue, while leaving only your healthy tissue.
LANAP® is an FDA-cleared dental method since 2004, although research and testing on the new dental advancement began in the early ’90s. In a recent issue of Digital Dynamic Dentistry, LANAP’s co-founder Dr. Robert H. Gregg II talked about the benefits of LANAP®
“There is minimal discomfort, shrinkage of swollen, puffy gums and reduction of bleeding.” said Gregg II.
