There are several benefits of LANAP over traditional periodontal surgery. First, LANAP is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no cutting or sutures, which means less pain, swelling, and downtime for the patient. Second, LANAP is a more targeted treatment that only removes diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact. This results in less trauma to the gums and a faster healing time. Third, LANAP has been shown to be more effective than traditional surgery in promoting the regeneration of new tissue and bone around the tooth.
After the LANAP procedure, patients can expect minimal discomfort and swelling. The healing time is usually faster than traditional surgery, and most patients can return to their normal activities within a day or two. Patients are advised to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting their dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups.
