LANAP/LASER Therapy

LANAP/LASER Therapy

LANAP/LASER Therapy - What is it?

Dr. Gurinsky offers this revolutionary technology to his patients in a wide range of services. Laser Periodontal Therapy, LANAP®, is an alternative to conventional surgery that has shown a higher success rate in gum tissue reattachment, new bone growth, and periodontal regeneration. We highly recommend the laser technique for most dental surgeries. Laser therapy allows us to conduct minimally invasive advanced procedures due to the laser’s ability to accurately remove only the bacteria and unhealthy tissue; leaving behind healthy intact gum tissue.

 How Does It Work and What Should I Expect?

Patients should expect to spend two, two-hour visits, for a complete full-mouth LANAP periodontal surgery. During the first visit we will focus on one side of the mouth, and then a week later we will finish the procedure by completing the other half. Many of our patients enjoy a quick recovery time.

During the first few days post surgery, some patients may experience mild tenderness and discomfort along with slightly discolored gum tissue. Splints may be utilized to help immobilize your teeth to help promote healing. Over the course of follow-up appointments, we may need to adjust your bite to ensure proper healing.

Our patients love us!

  • Dr Gurinsky is a wonderful person, he took the time to treat me with his laser when I was recuperating from chemotherapy and radiation induced mouth sores. He stated he had no billing protocol for that and just offered his help because he wanted to ease my discomfort. What a generous person.

  • He is amazing as well as all of his staff! I was very nervous for my procedure but it was extremely smooth and quick with zero pain. Recovery has been very easy and surprisingly not painful. I have had one follow-up appointment so far since my procedure a couple weeks ago and Dr. Gurinsky and his staff have been very attentive, ensuring everything is healing correctly, which it is! Would highly recommend to anyone needing a periodontist!
