Dr. Roos has been treating residents of Redwood City and the surrounding region for over twenty years. In that time he has dedicated his patient-centered practice around an exceptional dental experience coupled with the most up-to-date advances in dental care. It is this dedication that led Dr. Roos to Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP).

A Better Way to Treat Gum Disease

For persons dealing with periodontal gum disease, the process for finding a solution can be very frustrating, time consuming and costly. In addition to this, post surgical complications such as gum recession - which occurs when the body is trying to heal the areas where tissue was removed - can make your recovery seem to last forever. The problem this creates is that it exposes you, the patient, to an increased risk of infection, a potential for a poor outcome and more discomfort. But what if there was a way to improve the health of your gums while boosting the confidence you have in your smile with less pain – all while utilizing an FDA approved technique? It would be a process worth considering. Right?

Dr. Roos Treats Periodontal Disease with Laser Gum Therapy

The use of a laser in the treatment of periodontal gum disease represents a major leap forward for those persons dealing with this issue. The technology, developed over several years, has proven itself to be effective and patient friendly. In fact, 90% of persons who have the LANAP procedure regain at least some of the bone lost due to disease without scalpels, sutures and packing. As compared to the more traditional approach is just 60% effective and is achieved by surgically cutting away the dead tissue, suturing and packing. The advantage of the LANAP procedure is that it is extremely ‘tissue focused’ which means the healthy gums are not harmed. The end result for those patients who use Dr. Roos and the LANAP procedure are healthier gums and, most importantly, re-growth of new and healthy tissue.

No Cut, No Sew Less Invasive Laser Gum Surgery

The laser used by Dr. Roos for the LANAP procedure is both strong and precise at the same time. It is powerful enough to deal exclusively with your diseased tissue while being precise enough to avoid damaging healthy tissue. The advantage is a decreased potential for complications. The LANAP is an FDA approved procedure for addressing periodontal gum disease because it is safe and effective. And Dr. Roos, and his patients, have found the LANAP procedure to demonstrate significantly better results with no oral surgery and much less discomfort.

Peridontal Disease Treatment Without Oral Surgery

If you are a potential surgical candidate, you should understand there is an inherent risk with traditional gum surgery. Essentially, the more invasive the technique, those that require scalpels, sutures and packing, the greater the potential for unwanted complications. However, the LANAP procedure uses only laser light which minimizes collateral tissue damage, reduces post surgical complications and allows for new tissue growth. So, the short and long-term advantages of using the LANAP procedure make it the right solution for dealing with your gum disease. However, you should note that it is not a procedure every dentist is able to perform.
