The Nashville Periodontal Group Offers Laser Dental Surgery
Excelling in laser dental surgery, the Nashville Periodontal Group is part of the one percent of dental professionals in the country trained in LANAP. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is the only form of laser dental surgery cleared by the FDA. It treats gum disease by removing diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. This minimally invasive laser treatment is such a successful periodontal treatment because it stimulates bone growth, helping patients keep their teeth. LANAP® is the only laser treatment supported by scientific research and patient histological studies.
