Smiling Woman

Laser dentistry has changed the way dentist treat oral health issues related to the gums and soft tissues. LANAP is a highly effective laser system that allows for a less invasive, more effective and less painful alternative to traditional gum surgery. LANAP therapy is used by Boulder, CO cosmetic dentist Dr. Tracey Hugehs to stop the spread of gum disease and repair damaged tissue.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is a progressive bacterial infection that can cause advanced oral health concerns. Left untreated, gum disease is also linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Treating gum disease is essential in protecting your oral health.


LANAP laser therapy targets diseased tissue creating no additional damage to the gums. Dr. Hugehs can remove the bacterial infection caused by periodontal disease and even reach the deep pockets of the gums leaving. LANAP promotes the natural regeneration of healthy tissue using no sutures.

How long does the LANAP therapy treatment take?

Most patients will receive 2 treatments each 90 minutes long. Treatments are completed in the comfort of our spa-like dentist office and you will be treated to luxurious amenities during treatment.

Is LANAP therapy painful?

Most of our patients are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable LANAP therapy is. Dr. Hughes may use a local anesthetic prior to treatment to ensure your absolute comfort and ease. There is no downtime associated with LANAP and patients are able to resume their normal daily life immediately after treatment.
