Seattle periodontists among the first in the Northwest to offer advanced LANAP therapy for gum disease treatment
Seattle LANAP pioneers Dr. Michael Cohen and Dr. Robert Gottlieb discuss a breakthrough non-surgical treatment. The Seattle and Richland periodontists suggest LANAP can be a fast and effective alternative to surgery for certain patients.
Seattle, WA – Implant & Periodontal Associates Northwest (IPANW), a periodontal practice with offices in Kenmore and Richland, WA, offers new hope for patients with chronic or severe gum disease. Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is fast, non-surgical, and has been shown to stimulate the growth of new tissue, greatly reducing the risk of tooth loss and other associated problems. IPANW was the first specialty practice in Washington to offer this FDA-cleared procedure.
“LANAP is state-of-the-art periodontal disease treatment,“ says periodontist Dr. Michael Cohen, who, together with his partner Dr. Robert Gottlieb, performs LANAP in two Washington locations: Seattle and Richland. “Unlike other treatments like gum surgery, which primarily halts the progression of gum disease, LANAP can actually help reverse some of the damage.”
Periodontal disease is a chronic, inflammatory disease that affects gum tissue and structures surrounding the teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and further damage. LANAP offers a non-surgical and minimally-invasive alternative for patients needing gum disease treatment. In this process, a probe measures the depth of damage, then a special laser removes calculus, bacteria, and diseased tissue. The laser also sterilizes and seals the area. “It’s very quick and painless,” says Dr. Cohen. “There is no cutting or stitching required, and patients can usually return to normal activities the next day.”
LANAP also stimulates the formation of new cells in the tooth root and connective tissue, helping undo some of the damage. With proper maintenance, which includes good oral hygiene and regular dental visits, the disease should not return.
“Periodontal disease can seriously affect a patient’s life,” says Dr. Gottlieb. “It’s important that anyone with the condition get treated as soon as possible, and LANAP is one of the most effective periodontal disease treatments available.”
The Seattle periodontists encourage anyone interested in LANAP or other gum disease treatments to learn more by visiting their website at www.ipanw.com, or by calling their office at 425-486-9111 to set up an exam or consultation for LANAP treatment in Seattle.
