Laser Periodontal Therapy
LANAP™ is a gentle, conservative, less-invasive method of treating gum disease without cutting, suturing or removing tissue. Using the Millennium Perio-Lase Laser, Dr. Langston is able to kill up to 99% of the disease-causing bacteria in the periodontal pockets.
Periodontal Disease Periodontal disease is an ongoing bacterial infection of the gums and bone that surround your teeth. Left untreated, it can destroy the bone around your teeth. Approximately 75% of all adult tooth loss is due to periodontal infection.
