Be LANAP Ready: Hello Healthy Gums!

Do you have red, swollen and tender gums?
Are bad breath and unpleasant taste haunting you day and night? 
Do your gums bleed while you brush?

Bad news alert!!!

      Going by the symptoms looks like you are on the verge of losing your teeth. However, the good news is we at Deivam Dental Clinic are here to help.
If your answer is a yes to all the above questions, you are a victim of the periodontal disease. Periodontitis is characterized by pockets of bacterial growth that in severe cases (when left unchecked) can result in gum and bone damage. This means less support indicating loose teeth in the near future.

What is LANAP?
Laser-assisted new attachment procedure or LANAP as its more commonly known is a laser specific minimally invasive procedure. The protocol offers alternatives to the conventional surgical means characterized by less pain and higher success rates. A certified dentist or a periodontist makes sure that periodontal regeneration, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment.


This protocol has been in use in the field of dentistry since 1994. The LANAP protocol aims at treating the periodontal pocket by employing an optical fiber and a laser. With the optical fiber, a certified dentist or a periodontist succeeds in loosening the calculus or tartar.  Harmful bacteria are the only targets of the wavelength specific laser, leaving the healthy tissues unharmed. The calculus is removed utilizing fine ultrasonic instruments. Further antibacterial rinse will make you double sure that your teeth are calculus free. To seal off the surgical area and also to sterilize the pocket soft tissue and bones the laser is employed a second time. Now when it comes to the healing part the body's own fibrin closely secures the site.

Why do we recommend LANAP?
  • Regeneration is given an upper hand than resection.
  • No damage is done to the underlying connective tissue.
  • Quick 2 x 2 hour sessions.
  • No sutures are involved.
  • Very little to no gum recession.
  • No kind of bone grafting is included.
  • Takes the edge off bacteria in both the gums and tooth cavities.

Post Operation:
  • Good oral hygiene: Follow the slogan “Brush twice for two minutes daily”
  • Go by the prescribed diet chart
  • Homecare
**Your dentist or periodontist will recommend a couple of follow up appointments post op along with the above stated.

We Care Your Sensitive Teeth

Tooth sensitivity is the most common dental problem that involves pain (or) discomfort in teeth when exposed to hot, cold and certain foods. The pain will be a sudden and sharp and last for few seconds to minutes, as temporary. Tooth sensitivity is otherwise called dentin hypersensitivity. This problem occurs when the enamel in the teeth gets thinner, (or) the recession gum occurs.

Common causes of tooth sensitivity

  • In cracked teeth, the bacteria are filled up and cause inflammation in the tooth pulp. In severe cases, this condition leads to the formation of abscess, infection.
  • Using hard brush may lead to tooth sensitivity since it wears off tooth enamel, causes dentin to be exposed.
  • Gum recession occurs mostly in a periodontal disease that exposes dentin
  • Teeth clenching and grinding wears down the enamel
  • Consuming acidic foods will corrode tooth enamel
  • Plaque formation, Nerve damage
  • In the gingivitis condition, the inflamed and sore gum tissues result in tooth’s root exposure
  • Using mouthwash for a long period will affect the tooth. Some OTC mouthwashes comprise acids and when the dentin is exposed, the presence of acid in the mouthwash causes tooth sensitivity and damages the dentin layer. So, it is safe to use a neutral fluoride mouthwash.
  • After some dental procedures, the teeth may have hypersensitivity. Usually, this condition will disappear within a week’s of time.

  • Choose fluoride mouthwash and toothpaste
  • Avoid sensitive triggering foods such as hot, cold, sugary items
  • Avoid acidic foods such as tomatoes, citrus fruits, pickles
  • Rinse mouth with salt water
  • Stop grinding teeth
  • Do coconut oil pulling

Treatment for sensitive teeth

  • Root canal: When the sensitive teeth cause severe pain and other treatments do not work, the patient will be advised for a root canal treatment. In this procedure, dental pulp issues are treated and it has been the successful procedure to eliminate tooth sensitivity.
  • Dental Crowns: Decayed teeth may be treated with a crown. Crowns help sometimes to seal the root surfaces and protect teeth.
