Laser Periodontal Therapy

A Painless Treatment for Periodontal Diseases

Delaware Periodontics is proud to say we are the first periodontal practice in the state of Delaware to offer Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure for the treatment of gum disease. LANAP is a painless and effective treatment that does not require the use of a scalpel or sutures.

With this exciting breakthrough in periodontics, Dr. Bradford Klassman is able to deliver minimally invasive periodontal treatment for patients in Wilmington and other surrounding areas, such as Dover.

What Is Laser Periodontal Therapy?

Laser Periodontal Therapy is the very first FDA-approved laser treatment for gum disease. With this procedure, we are able to treat patients with gum disease without the use of surgery. This kind of treatment quickly dissolves the fears many patients experience when facing periodontal treatments. The ability to treat gum disease without surgery is a truly profound advance in periodontics.

How It Works

Following your diagnosis of gum disease, Dr. Klassman will schedule a consultation visit to explain how the laser works and walk you through the entire treatment. X-rays will be taken to make a definitive diagnosis and determine the severity of the infection.

For your first LANAP treatment, you will receive a local anesthetic to eliminate any possible discomfort. A small laser fiber, equivalent to the thickness of three hairs, will then be inserted between the tooth and gum to clear the infection. In just two hours you will be able to get on with the rest of your day.

Benefits of Laser Periodontal Therapy

Laser Periodontal Therapy is the industry-preferred treatment for gum disease, due to the fact that no surgical equipment is needed. For patients, this means you will experience far less pain, bleeding, swelling, tissue removal, down time, and recovery time. Additionally, the procedure is less costly to you and your employer.

For us, Laser Periodontal Therapy enables us to remove only the targeted, infected tissue, and leave the healthy tissue intact. This treatment also allows us to get a closure of the periodontal pocket wound and allow healing to take place. All in all, this treatment enhances the likelihood that patients will be able to restore and protect otherwise helpless teeth.
