Dr. Nicole Mantha performs laser gum surgery. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a form of gum disease treatment that removes bacteria and diseased tissue from the mouth without the use of a scalpel or sutures. With LANAP®, Dr. Mantha will use a laser to selectively remove unhealthy gum tissue in a way that is less painful and less invasive than traditional methods.
What is LANAP®?
LANAP® is an innovative new method of gum disease treatment that does not involve any cutting or stitching of gum tissue. Instead, Dr. Mantha will use a highly intelligent laser to remove bacteria and diseased tissue from the area. This results in very little pain and bleeding. In fact, LANAP® is the only method of laser gum surgery to be cleared by the FDA. The secret to its success is the PerioLase®MVP-7™. This is an innovative new piece of technology that can differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue. By using the PerioLase®MVP-7™, your London, ON periodontist can remove only the unhealthy tissue while leaving the healthy portions intact. This means that there is less bleeding, less pain, and less recession of the gum line.
Why should I choose LANAP®?
Gum disease is an epidemic that affects millions of Canadians each year. Surprisingly, only a small portion of this group actually seeks treatment from Dr. Mantha. Most patients do not understand that gum disease can affect more than just your oral health. In fact, when left untreated gum disease can increase a patient’s risk of heart disease, pancreatic cancer, and low birth weight in their children.
