Q: What is LANAP?
LANAP is a procedure that was invented by two Californian dentists. They were bothered by the invasive way gum disease was treated and in turn developed a much better method. The laser fiber which is the width of about three human hairs is inserted between your tooth and the gum tissue where it removes the poison that causes gum disease.

It is usually done with two, two-hour sessions. The treatment itself is painless and you don’t have to worry about bleeding, stitches or post-treatment infection, because your gums haven’t been cut. This procedure allows for a quick recovery.
