At Arizona Smile Designers, we always strive to provide advanced dental technology for the benefit of our patients. We want to make our treatments both as effective and as convenient as possible so that our patients can achieve the best results when it comes to their oral health. As your trusted cosmetic dentists in Cottonwood and Sedona, AZ, one of these helpful technological advances that we offer in our office is LANAP.
LANAP (which stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an FDA-cleared dental laser treatment that allows for the targeted removal of diseased gum tissue. LANAP is a minimally-invasive surgery that doesn’t require a scalpel or sutures like traditional gum surgery. The laser used in this procedure actually operates at a wavelength that can tell whether the gum tissue is diseased or healthy. This allows the treatment to remove the diseased tissue without removing or even harming any healthy gum tissue – a clear contrast to traditional gum surgery.
