Some of the red flags to be aware of include sensitive teeth, bleeding gums, bad breath, receding gums and gum inflammation. Early treatment with LANAP® laser gum surgery can be effective for restoring your oral health.

How LANAP® Works

Laser dentistry procedures can stop an infection from spreading in the mouth and help to restore your oral health in just a single visit. LANAP® treatment is efficient and effective for patients that are diagnosed with moderate to severe gum disease. Dr. Jin Kim may recommend the LANAP® protocol as part of your treatment plan if you have moderate to severe gum disease. This is an FDA-cleared laser treatment for gum disease and has proven to be very effective. The laser will destroy bacteria and melt away diseased tissue. The laser also encourages the formation of a clot that seals the area to prevent infection and enhances healing. LANAP® laser gum surgery encourages healthy tissue to reattach and provides protection from further damage.
