The LANAP® Procedure in Vancouver & Burnaby, BC


(Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)



Basic Steps of the LANAP® Protocol

A Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) with Vancouver dentist Dr. Steven Tsoung is a gentle surgery option. Our patients love it because it is a minimally invasive gum disease treatment in Vancouver and provides such remarkable and lasting results. One session of LANAP® gum disease treatment in Vancouver with Dr. Tsoung takes just a few hours. Without using a scalpel during this gum disease treatment in Vancouver, healing time is shortened.

LANAP® Step by Step with Vancouver Dentist Dr. Tsoung

1. How deep are the gum pockets? Dr. Tsoung first uses a dental probe to measure your gum pocket depth and determine how much connective tissue has migrated from your tooth roots.
2. Eliminating bacteria. This is why laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver is less painful than the scalpel. Dr. Tsoung delivers precisely targeted beams of light between your teeth and gums to get rid of bacteria and nothing else. The laser ignores all of your healthy tissue so it can reattach to the surface roots of your teeth.
3. Eliminating calculus/tarter. Now your Vancouver dentist will use the laser to get rid of tarter build-up between your teeth and gums. Then the debris is cleared away using tiny ultrasonic scalers.
4. Clotting blood. This is also a very unique step of the laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver. Laser light is used to manipulate very small amounts of bone, tissue and tooth roots until blood begins to thicken into tiny clots around your teeth. These clots become protective barriers that promote a safe healing environment.
5. Tissue Compression. A laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver means no stiches. Dr. Tsoung will take your healthy gum tissue and compress it to your tooth root surfaces for a natural reattachment.
6. Bite adjustment. It is important to adjust the bite, especially if you have had some bone loss – to ensure your mouth stays aligned and comfortable after the laser gum disease treatment in Vancouver.
