Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure

Root Canal Treatment

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure: We at Bangalore Dental solutions are proud to make use of certain types of Lasers to painlessly and non-surgically remove periodontal disease (Gum Disease). This new technology is specifically done for patients who have a fear associated with conventional Flap surgery because LANAP does not involve incisions to be made with a scalpel, no sutures, and less post-operative discomfort. This treatment is called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). LANAP is used to allow the gums to re-attach to the tooth. The Laser creates access for the dentist to deep clean the depths of the tooth pocket, kills the bacteria which has taken-up residence in the bone, allows the bone regenerate and gum tissue to re-attach to the teeth. The LANAP procedure destroys the bacteria-infected tissue and removes all disease-causing bacteria from the mouth. The gum tissue can then regenerate and restore the connective tissue forming the periodontal ligament, the teeth and gums to protect against re-infection.

The ND:Yag fiber optic tip is the first and only laser designed with the needs of the periodontal patient in mind. This Nd:YAG laser is equipped with all the unique features necessary to perform Laser Periodontal Therapy. It has a full complement of new soft tissue laser treatment options. The PerioLase can now be used effectively to reach down into the pockets to help eliminate inflamed tissue and destroy pathogenic bacteria.

The LANAP can be explained in few simple steps:

  • A ND:Yag laser fiber optic tip identifies excessive pocket depths.
  • The initial pass with the laser removes bacteria and diseased tissue.
  • An ultrasonic scaler or special hand instrument removes root surface tartar that was loosened when the laser was passed initially.
  • The laser is then passed for the second time which helps blood clot stimulation in the pocket to keep the epithelium from growing back into those areas.
  • Reattachment of soft tissue and bone to the clean root surfaces is initiated.
  • The patient’s bite is adjusted to eliminate bite trauma.
  • New connective tissue attachment and bone growth occur.

The advantages of LANAP

  • It takes less time than traditional surgery.
  • Patients experience less discomfort.
  • It gives better and long lasting results.
  • It can avoid traditional flap surgery.
  • Patients require less than 24 hour of recovery period.
  • It’s an easy procedure as it does not involve any cuts or stitches.
  • It is safe for patients with health concerns like diabetics and hemophilia.

Benefits of LANAP OR TWIN LIGHT TECHNIQUE (WPT) over conventional flap surgery

Painless procedure

Laser technique is a minimally invasive procedure and involves less or no pain, during and after the procedure.

Blood loss

Due to the predictive and precise nature of the procedure, there is minimal invasion and minimal bleeding


Since there is no real surgery or cutting involved, no sutures are required post-procedure

Recovery and healing

Post-procedural recoveries and healings are faster when compared to traditional flap surgery


Since accuracy rates are high, the results are also better compared to traditional surgery


There is minimal tissue shrinkage compared to traditional flap surgery; this significantly initiates faster healing and reattachment due to good blood perfusion


Only one or two visits are required to fulfill the laser procedure, while traditional treatment methods require patients to attend the clinic multiple times
