Periodontal Laser Procedures The LANAP® Protocol


Another recent development in periodontal treatment is the use of lasers to regenerate tissue. Utilizing the body’s own natural ability to “heal itself”, Dr. Weiss may perform Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (The LANAP® Protocol). Performed without a scalpel and sutures, the laser could create an environment for regeneration of the tissues around your teeth (gum, bone, cementum, ligament) that are lost due to periodontal disease.

The LANAP® Protocol

Post-Operative Instructions

  • Anti-microbial rinses and antibiotic medications may be prescribed for you. Take any prescribed medications according to directions and continue taking until all meds are gone.
  • Liquid diet for the first three days after the procedure.
  • No brushing for the first week.
  • Reduce physical activity for several hours following surgery.
  • Periodontal laser procedures usually result in little or no discomfort following surgery.

DR. Weiss Is certified in The LANAP® Protocol.
