LANAP is otherwise called LASER Assisted New Attachment Procedure.
STEPS IN LANAP:
Step-1: The gums are isolated using cotton roles and Anaesthetic gel is applied. Injection of local anaesthesia is given only in case of deep pockets.
Step-2: Dentist inserts the laser fibreoptic tip, into the infected pocket to remove bacteria and infected tissue.
Step-3: Thorough scaling and root planning is done using scalers and curettes. The infected inner layer of gums is removed initiating fresh bleeding. Lasers are moved around the sulcus of the teeth which provides complete sterilization in the deepest of pockets and enhances blood clot formation which gradually leads to sealing of the gums around the root surface of teeth leading to new attachment.
-Little or no patient discomfort during and after the procedure.
-Very few dietary restrictions, postoperative medications and instructions to be taken care of.
-No postoperative gum recessions.
-Quicker recovery time.
