Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is an FDA-approved therapy that effectively fights moderate to severe gum disease. This revolutionary procedure was developed by Dr. Robert H. Gregg, who wanted to create a better experience for patients in need of gum disease treatment. In the past, the only way to get rid of gum disease was by undergoing surgery with a scalpel. Thanks to LANAP, gum disease can be treated in a far gentler manner.
Minimally Invasive, Effective Gum Disease
While LANAP and traditional gum disease treatment share the aim of fighting gum disease, their approaches are quite different. In traditional gum disease treatment, the goal is to simply remove the diseased tissue.
LANAP involves the use of a precisely focused laser designed to remove the surface layer of diseased gum tissue without harming the healthy gum tissue. The laser promotes healing by using body’s own ability to seal the healthy gum tissue back to the root of the tooth once the procedure is complete.

“When I came to Dr. Alidadi, my gums were in really bad condition. I had swelling, pain and bleeding. Dr. Alidadi then recommended laser treatment. She had explained it was less invasive and had quicker healing time than normal gum surgery/treatment. Initially I was reluctant, but gave it a try.
“My treatment is now completed and I have no swelling, no pain and no bleeding. This sounds like a success story to me. I am truly pleased with the results. I sincerely thank Dr. Alidadi for the treatment and being very thorough when providing the laser treatment.”
