LANAP Laser Dentistry

LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)

Your smile deserves a second chance.  We will help make that process comfortable.  Periodontal (gum) disease is a common disease.  In the past, the only way to get rid of moderate to advanced gum disease was to have invasive surgery.  Finally, there is an alternative to traditional periodontal surgery!

Dr. Hughes is one of a few dentists in Colorado who use laser dentistry with a PerioLase to get rid of bacterial infections in the gums.  Why does that matter?

  • No more cutting or stitches
  • Less discomfort during and after the procedure
  • Quicker recovery time than conventional gum surgery
  • Safer treatment for patients with diabetes or hemophilia
  • Predictable, long-lasting results

With LANAP Laser Dentistry, we can correct the problem without the need for surgery!

“I have gum disease and was told I need surgery.”

“Not with us!  Louisville dentist, Dr. Tracey Hughes, uses a laser to treat gum disease!”

This is the first FDA approved procedure to treat moderate to advanced gum disease using a comfortable laser alternative.  LANAP is a regenerative procedure that creates a biologic seal, allowing your body to regenerate bone and attachment of the tooth root back to the bone without the use of scalpels and sutures!  If you have moderate to advanced gum disease our laser dentistry can help! No need to experience scalpels and stitches, because our virtually painless laser LANAP can restore your gums back to health.

How does LANAP work?

A tiny laser fiber the thickness of 3 human hairs is inserted between the tooth and the gum, and the infection is cleared away.  The tooth roots are thoroughly cleaned of tartar and plaque, and the laser is used a 2nd time with a different setting to create a stable, firm blood clot.  The procedure is fast, usually requiring just two 90 minute sessions, and is performed by Dr. Hughes in the dentist’s office under local anesthesia (fancy word for lidocaine numbing agent).  Dr. Hughes treats one half of the mouth at each session and patients are able to go back to work that same day or the day after as there is very little down time following LANAP laser dentistry.

Dr. Hughes uses laser therapy to get rid of gum disease without using older traditional scalpel and suture technique.  Laser energy painlessly removes bacterial build up and diseased tissue, then the laser seals the gums for a speedy healing process.  That’s why we’re proud to treat you with LANAP laser alternative to gum surgery, without stitches!
