The Benefits of LANAP Laser Treatment

One condition that can have a lasting, adverse effect on the smile’s health is periodontal disease. When a patient is diagnosed with any stage of periodontal disease, they will need to work alongside their dentist to obtain the quality care they need to reverse the damage and control the infection. Beata A. Carlson and Associates of Natural Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, work with patients with a wide range of dental concerns. At Natural Dentistry, we are excited to offer a range of more modern and technologically advanced services to ensure the best possible treatment for individuals of all ages. This includes integrating the LANAP procedure for periodontal patients.

LANAP Laser Treatment Benefits in Clearwater FL Area

What is LANAP in Dentistry?

LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a minimally invasive treatment for gum disease that uses a laser to remove infected tissue and bacteria. The laser also stimulates the growth of new tissue, which helps to reattach the gums to the teeth. This treatment is best used to avoid more invasive solutions such as surgical removal and gum grafting, other procedures to consider when dealing with the aftereffects of periodontal disease. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates are trained and experienced in using this and other state-of-the-art solutions for addressing everyday oral health needs.

Why Should I Choose LANAP Laser Treatment?

LANAP is an effective alternative to traditional gum surgery and can provide long-term results with minimal discomfort and downtime. LANAP is also affordable and less invasive, ensuring patients have faster healing times and recovery with less interruption in their daily lives following their procedure. These are just a few of the exciting benefits this treatment can provide.

How is LANAP Performed?

Beata A. Carlson and Associates will first numb the gums with a local anesthetic during your LANAP procedure. Once comfortable, they will place a small laser probe between your teeth and direct it at the infected gum tissue. The laser energy will then remove the bacteria and damaged tissue while promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue. The entire procedure typically takes under two hours, and you can return to normal activities the same day. Patients will want to ask about this and other less invasive treatments to ensure their dental services are affordable and effective at managing the conditions.


What are the Risks Associated with LANAP?

As with any typical medical procedure, LANAP has some risks. These include discomfort, bleeding, swelling, and infection. However, these risks are considered minimal and can be easily managed by Dr. Beata A. Carlson and her associates.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson at Clearwater, FL

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
