How LANAP® Can Help You Prepare for Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is a time for getting together with family and friends; these moments are often full of friendly laughter and plenty of smiles. Problems with your teeth, including gum disease, might make you feel self-conscious. Dr. Kevin Hogan is a cosmetic dentist who can address such oral health issues with the LANAP® treatment.

What Is LANAP® Treatment?

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a tool used by dentists and periodontists to treat gum disease and restore healthier smiles. The device is approved by the FDA, and clinical testing provides ample evidence of its effectiveness.

The laser removes diseased gum tissues affected by gum disease and helps your mouth recover quickly from infection-causing bacteria. With a conventional surgery, affected tissues cut away by a scalpel need sutures and time to heal. The laser treatment is much less invasive. Patients receive the benefit of our therapy without the painful recovery times.

Do I Need LANAP Treatment?

A consultation with Dr. Hogan can provide the direct answer you need based on your specific situation. Eligible patients suffer from some form of gum disease. This common condition is often the result of neglect or poor habits.

Common symptoms include:

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bleeding at the gum line
  • Loose teeth
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Receding gum line

When gum tissues pull away from your teeth, they leave the nerves exposed. You may experience extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. This condition also contributes to tooth loss.

It’s crucial to repair the gum tissue to restore your overall oral health. The LANAP® procedure does this with less work and pain. When your gums are healthy, your natural teeth remain firmly in place without shifting.

If you are a candidate for the procedure, cosmetic dentist Dr. Hogan can treat you and have your smile looking healthier and brighter just in time for the holidays. To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact our office today and schedule an appointment.
