The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is a revolutionary tool in the effective treatment of periodontal disease, drastically improving the manner in which periodontists treat their patients. Always at the cutting-edge of dental and periodontal technology, Dr. Barry L. Holden is proud to offer the LANAP protocol to his patients in Williamsport, State College, and the surrounding areas.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately half of all adults in America suffer from moderate periodontal disease, more commonly referred to as gum disease. Because of their condition, these 64.7 million men and women are at an increased risk of developing a variety of associated medical and dental health issues, including tooth loss, heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and various forms of cancer.
Fortunately, modern oral healthcare technology now makes it possible to treat gum disease in a way that may effectively reverse some of the condition’s effects before they reach this level of severity. The LANAP procedure performed at the office of Dr. Barry L. Holden incorporates decades of research and clinical testing to achieve optimal results without the drawbacks of conventional gum disease treatment.
While traditional treatment options for gum disease involve the use of a scalpel and sutures following the procedure, the LANAP method utilizes the power of a focused dental laser to eliminate infection and actively heal the gum tissue as it eradicates bacteria. It is minimally invasive and results in substantially less sensitivity, gum recession, and bleeding. Dr. Holden uses this precision laser to treat gum disease and stimulate new tissue growth.
