Am I a Good Candidate For LANAP?
If you have any form of gum disease, even gingivitis, you’re likely a candidate for laser gum therapy. LANAP is especially great for people with busy schedules, dental anxieties, and for those who have multiple affected gum areas. Because of a reduced risk of bleeding and infection, LANAP is also a safer alternative than traditional gum surgery for patients with diabetes, hemophilia, and those on medications that thin the blood.
