Need A Dental Implant but Not Enough Bone?

LANAP™ Bone Grafting Procedure

LANAP™ (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) Laser Bone Regeneration

  • LANAP™ is the only FDA approved laser to regenerate bone. We have the ability to grow bone in areas that would have required extractions and implants.
  • NO Incisions or Sutures are necessary
  • Because no bleeding is involved, there will be no need to stop blood thinners (for example aspirin)
  • No Bone grafting which requires placement of foreign material, is needed.
  • LASER STIMULATES YOUR OWN BODY TO GENERATE BONE

What is Bone-Grafting?

  • Bone grafting is often closely associated with dental restorations such as bridge work and dental implants.
  • In the majority of cases, the success of a restoration procedure can hinge on the height, depth, and width of the jawbone at the implant site.
  • When the jawbone associated with missing teeth shrinks, or has sustained significant damage, the implant(s) cannot be supported on this unstable foundation and bone grafting is usually recommended.

Causes for Jaw Bone Volume Shrinkage

  • Periodontal Disease Periodontal disease can affect and permanently damage the jaw bone that supports the teeth. Affected areas progressively worsen until the teeth become unstable.
  • Tooth Extraction Studies have shown that patients who have experienced a tooth extraction subsequently lose 40-60% of the bone surrounding the extraction site during the following three years. Loss of bone results in what is called a “bone defect”.
  • Injuries and Infections Dental injuries and other physical injuries resulting from a blow to the jaw can cause the bone to recede. Infections can also cause the jaw bone to recede in a similar way.
