      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.
