LANAP Periolase Laser – Dental Implant Restoration in Wareham, MA

For people with one or more missing teeth, dental implants can be life-changing. But what happens when the implants experience a problem once placed? A LANAP periolase laser procedure can help remove infection and damaged tissue while promoting healthy gum and bone growth. Here’s what you need to know about how a LANAP periolase laser treatment could benefit you before scheduling your consultation with Dr. Kiehl at Southcoast Dental in Wareham.

What is LANAP Periolase Laser?

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a state-of-the-art technology that allows dentists to restore tissues, such as gums and bone, safely and effectively. It is the only dental laser that the FDA has approved. Whereas oral surgeries of the past have required traditional instruments, such as scalpels, LANAP lasers can remove, alter, and even reattach tissues with minimal pain or bleeding. 

How Can LANAP Periolase Laser Grow Bone Save an Implant?

Dental implant restoration is a dental procedure used to replace a tooth’s missing root with a metal rod that attaches to a dental crown creating a tooth replacement that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Although dental implants usually successfully fuse together with the patient’s jawbone to create a permanent, comfortable tooth replacement option, in some cases, problems can arise that could jeopardize the implant’s condition, such as peri-implant disease. When this occurs, a LANAP periolase may be able to preserve the well-being of the patient’s mouth and save the implant by helping the surrounding bone to grow as it should.

The LANAP Procedure

For dental implants that are failing, the LANAP procedure can help. Along with killing the bacteria that can cause inflammation and infection, the LANAP procedure can also repair the damage done to the surrounding gum and bone tissue while encouraging the bone to regrow and reattaching the gum tissue to the implant or bone. Most importantly, this is done with minimal incisions, which means less pain during the procedure and a smoother recovery time when the procedure is complete.

Benefits of LANAP PerioLase Laser for Dental Implant Restoration

 The LANAP periolase laser can provide many benefits for someone undergoing dental implant restoration, including:

  • Less pain and discomfort than traditional surgery
  • Faster healing time and reduced risk of complications
  • Preservation of healthy tissue and bone
  • Improved long-term outcomes for dental implant restoration

Preparing for LANAP PerioLase Laser Treatment

Undergoing a LANAP periolase dental laser treatment is simple and convenient. Before your treatment, it’s important to discuss any potential risks or concerns you may have with your dentist. While the procedure is considered minimally invasive, it’s still a surgical treatment so local anesthesia may be required depending on the condition of your mouth and your pain tolerance. During the procedure, the dentist will have you wear a protective covering over your eyes. You shouldn’t feel any pain. However, it’s common to feel uncomfortable after the treatment is over. This is typically short-lived and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
