Treating Gum Disease without Surgery

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a serious oral condition that can complicate your overall health if left untreated. If you’re living with gum disease but would like to avoid the discomfort associated with surgical gum disease treatments, LANAP may be a good option for you. This high-tech, non-invasive treatment can help you treat gum disease without surgery and improve your overall health in the process.

If you're in the San Francisco or East Bay areas and you're worried that gum disease may be compromising your dental health, the highly advanced, non-surgical LANAP laser treatment might be the perfect solution for you.

Exceptional Results with LANAP Bone Regeneration

If you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease and are looking for a safe, comfortable periodontal treatment, Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff in San Francisco may suggest a LANAP gum treatment. He and his team of experts will work with you to determine the true health of your gums and assess whether or not LANAP can provide the treatment you need. 

LANAP is the ideal gum disease treatment, even when patients have conditions like diabetes or hemophilia, which can complicate the healing process of traditional gum surgery. This laser is FDA-approved for histological bone regeneration and currently is used in many advanced universities such as the University of California San Francisco and Columbia University.

Our Commitment to Next-Generation Procedures

“LANAP” stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, which is a minimally invasive gum disease treatment. By utilizing highly precise laser energy, this procedure effectively restores your healthy gum tissues while also encouraging your body to naturally regenerate the surrounding supportive bone tissues. While traditional gum surgeries can be uncomfortable, the LANAP procedure is surprisingly tolerable. Since it's a minimally invasive procedure, you won't have to deal with any incisions, and your recovery time will be minimized.

In cases where multiple teeth have been lost, bone resorption can sometimes prevent patients from being able to receive implants or bridges that might restore their functional bite. Similarly, severe gum disease can also cause a significant loss of gum tissue and/or bone tissue. Not only can this stand in the way of an implant procedure, but it can lead to severe oral disease in the future, as well. LANAP laser bone regeneration is a minimally invasive procedure that helps patients avoid these issues by restoring lost gum and bone tissue.

The Restorative Powers of LANAP Laser Bone Regeneration

  • Restoration of lost bone tissue to adequately support implants or bridges
  • Non-invasive procedure
  • No cutting, incisions, or bleeding
  • Minimized recovery period
  • Avoidance of further tooth loss or gum disease
  • Removal of bacteria and accumulated tartar

Exceptional Results with Advanced Technology

During a LANAP laser bone regeneration surgery, Dr. Samadian and his staff will use a minimally invasive laser device that offers seven different pulse durations. This gives Dr. Samadian an impressive level of control during the procedure and enables the PerioLase laser device to only target diseased tissues.

Since the laser is able to specifically target the infected gum tissue and eliminate any existing harmful bacteria, it can effectively leave the surrounding, healthy tissues untouched and unhurt. This eliminates the potential for any painful complications while also keeping the treatment area limited.

There are no stitches or cuts involved in the LANAP laser bone loss treatment in San Francisco, so your recovery period will be much shorter than that which would be possible after a traditional gum surgery. Dr. Samadian and his team can treat your entire mouth with the LANAP treatment in a single three- to four-hour session.

Enjoying Complete Oral Health

You'll experience about one to two days of recovery, and will need to take antibiotics for a week. Antimicrobial mouthwash will be used for two weeks, and we'll set up a follow-up appointment to ensure that you're healing nicely. A periodontal maintenance appointment will be set for every three months with our hygienist.

A Surprisingly Comfortable Experience

Since there is no unpleasant cutting or scraping, your gum disease treatment will be quite comfortable. Unlike traditional gum and bone regeneration treatments, the LANAP laser procedure uses advanced technology to keep the procedure as pain-free as possible. If you find yourself dealing with any discomfort in the days following your procedure, we can help you with pain medication. This is rarely required, however, as most of our patients are able to completely forego pain medication and resume their normal routines in less than a day.

Complete Gum Rehabilitation

LANAP can fully rehabilitate the health of your gums, eliminating the risk for bone tissue loss, while also effectively decreasing the risk for future complications that might negatively impact your health. Dr. Samadian will be able to avoid diseased tissue without impacting the healthy tissues nearby, effectively removing any future risk for gum recession, and enabling you to once again enjoy reduced inflammation while regenerating vital bone tissue. For patients in the San Francisco and East Bay areas, the LANAP gum treatment is just one of the methods by which Dr. Samadian can guide you to full and complete oral health.
