What is LANAP®?


Periodontal disease is a common and often untreated chronic oral infection that leads to tooth loss and can negatively impact other medical conditions. In its initial stages, periodontal or gum disease sufferers will experience red, swollen, or bleeding gums and bad breath. Without gum disease treatment, teeth will shift and become loose, and your gums may recede, causing the roots of your teeth to be exposed. In advanced cases, patients lose both their teeth and their jaw bone density.

In the past, the only available gum disease treatment was traditional surgery, which some patients avoided for personal or medical reasons. Now, however, a new laser gum surgery offers a more convenient and less invasive gum disease treatment without the use of scalpels or sutures. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a laser gum disease treatment that successfully treats gum disease with less pain and less downtime. Indianapolis periodontist, Dr. Robert E. Hindman, DDS, offers this innovative gum disease treatment to patients who suffer from periodontal disease.


Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Gum Disease Treatment by an Indianapolis Periodontist?

Almost anyone who needs gum disease treatment is a good candidate for LANAP®. Laser gum disease treatment, performed by our Indianapolis periodontist is safe for patients taking prescription medication or who currently have serious medical conditions that may preclude them from other treatments, including those with diabetes and hemophilia. Laser technology allows our Indianapolis periodontist to control and therefore, minimize bleeding during this gum disease treatment.

The “no cut-no-sew” method of this gum disease treatment also makes it an attractive alternative for patients who are uncomfortable with dental work and surgical procedures. If you have been told that you need gum disease treatment, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure is to talk to our Indianapolis periodontist, Dr. Hindman.
