We then remove calculus and plaque from the tooth roots to eliminate the source of harmful bacteria, after which the laser finishes sterilizing and cleaning the periodontal pocket. The connective gum tissue is then placed back over the area to begin the healing process.
LANAP gum treatment has many benefits, including:

- Faster treatment time — your LANAP treatment requires fewer visits and less chair time
- Quicker recovery — LANAP is minimally invasive, leading to a much swifter recovery than traditional gum surgery
