Dr. Craig Janssen provides state of the art laser dentistry by using the revolutionary LANAP® protocol in Green Bay, WI. LANAP® laser treatment is a noninvasive alternative to traditional gum surgery that is available to help treat gum disease in a minimally invasive manner.
The Consequences of Gum Disease
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a serious condition affecting millions of Americans each year. When bacteria build up in the mouth, they gather on and around the surfaces of the teeth and gums, producing toxins that destroy the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. Bone loss occurs, which results in recession of the gum tissues. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, jaw bone deterioration, and a variety of health complications.
What is the LANAP® Protocol?
The LANAP® protocol was the first FDA approved laser gum surgery on the market, available only after extensive research was completed around the world to halt the progress of periodontal disease.
Traditional gum surgery procedures to treat gum disease include cutting and suturing gum tissue, extracting teeth, or placing dental implants. LANAP®
laser treatment provides Dr. Janssen with state of the art technology to reduce the effects of gum disease, save teeth, and restore gum tissue.
Why Use LANAP® Laser Treatment?
There are several advantages to using LANAP® treatment as an alternative to traditional gum surgery, including:
- Laser treatment does not interact with any medications
- Very little bleeding and discomfort occur during or after treatment
- Minimal to no gum recession results from treatment
- Quicker healing time and the ability to go back to daily activities in the same day
The best reason to use the LANAP® protocol is that it helps save teeth, promoting good dental and overall health.
