We have a procedure that can help!

Laser CPR is a breakthrough procedure that treats and periodontal disease without surgery.

Why choose Laser CPR?

Laser CPR is a fast and effective method that uses heat and light to help cure periodontal disease. The LANAP system that we use in laser treatments is FDA cleared and is extremely quick and effective, and virtually pain-free!

What is Laser CPR?

Laser CPR uses the LANAP system which is a FDA- cleared, non –invasive treatment for gum disease. Laser therapy is not a separate treatment but works in combination with other traditional therapies. Laser CPR uses a variable pulsed laser to target harmful bacteria and diseased gum tissue and prevents the spread of infection. During this procedure a laser is used to access and remove the inflamed gum tissue from around the tooth’s root and remove the tartar and plaque built up below and around your gum line. We also smooth out rough spots on your tooth above and below the gum line using a dental tool, mitigating the chances of your teeth and gums attracting more bacteria.

The mouth will need time to heal and regenerate after a laser treatment. The gums should be free of infection during the healing period and coil back around the tooth. Laser treatments can be performed only by qualified specialists as they have a perfect understanding of how to use different wavelengths.

What are the types of lasers used?

There are two types of laser used: hard tissue or soft tissue lasers based on the type of treatment required. The hard tissue lasers can cut through a tooth structure as their wavelengths get absorbed through a combination of water and mineral present in the teeth. These lasers are used to shape teeth for composite bondings, repair worn-out dental fillings, and remove a part of a tooth structure. The soft tissue lasers can be absorbed through water and hemoglobin and are primarily used to treat periodontitis, including the destruction of bacteria and stimulating tissue regrowth.

Are you a candidate for Laser CPR?

In order to make certain the LANAP procedure is right for you and your gums, we will perform an exam, take an in-house CT scan of your entire jaw in order to assess the health and condition of your teeth, roots, jaw and alveolar bone. If you are a candidate for this procedure, we will write you a treatment plan and discuss all of your options.

Laser CPR Benefits

Laser CPR has many benefits. The LANAP system and encourages periodontal regeneration and through the use of a laser, we are able to trigger the growth of new, healthy bone and it also allows gums to reattach to the teeth.

Laser CPR is much safer that traditional periodontal treatments. It limits damage to healthy gum tissue, decreases pocket depth and allows the body to recover without the need for sutures or stitches.

There are several benefits to using lasers for clearing out diseased gum tissue. The main advantages of using laser therapy to treat gum disease are as follows:

  • Periodontal laser cleaning procedures offer a more comfortable experience for the patient
  • Recovery and healing times are shorter.
  • It is very effective during the removal of infected tissues.
  • General anesthetic is not necessary.
  • The patients don’t experience any dental anxiety before the beginning of the procedure.
  • Lasers can target the diseased areas precisely and accurately.
  • There’s less bleeding, pain, and swelling because periodontal laser therapy is less invasive than regular surgery.
  • There is limited sensitivity and less swelling in the gums.
  • Less gum loss and promoted regeneration of healthy bone.
  • Quick recovery time.
