LANAP® In Bellevue, WA
The less painful and more successful alternative to traditional periodontal surgery.
CURE GUM DISEASE WITHOUT SURGERY

Traditionally, when gum disease becomes severe enough to need intervention, it means undergoing periodontal surgery. Naturally, this causes many patients to avoid treatment out of fear, putting their oral and overall health at more risk.
But now, you can cure your gum disease with a gentle laser… This text opens a new tab to the LANAP website….

LANAP VS. PERIODONTAL SURGERY
See why patients and dentists prefer this non-surgical alternative.
The laser is the equivalent thickness of 3 human hairs and doesn’t require incisions, stitches, scalpels, etc.
There’s less pain, swelling, bleeding, sensitivity, gum loss, and risk of post-op infections.
Most patients resume their normal schedule right away, minimizing time off work.
No need for bone or tissue grafts because LANAP helps regenerate new bone and gum tissue previously lost to gum disease.
LANAP doesn’t remove or reconstruct healthy gum tissue, keeping your smile as natural looking as possible.
LANAP will help prevent further infection, tooth loss, gum recession, bone loss, and other harmful side effects of gum disease.
The staff has a culture of patient care and satisfaction. Most impressive was the work done by Dr. Stephan Kohnen. He has a calming disposition, and I enjoyed the extra time he spent with me to explain what was going to happen, what to expect, and follow up/next steps. I would wholeheartedly recommend them for any services that they provide.

FAQ ABOUT LANAP LASER THERAPY
Answered by our world-class periodontists.
Who is a candidate?
If you have moderate to severe gum disease, you may be a candidate for this non-surgical gum disease treatment.
To confirm, schedule a consultation with our periodontists.
Is LANAP safe?
Yes, LANAP is safe.
It’s FDA-cleared and can only be performed by LANAP-trained dentists, like ours.
Unlike other periodontal surgeries, the LANAP laser gently kills bacteria and vaporizes diseased tissue. After tartar and plaque are removed from the tooth, the laser goes back in to create a seal and help your body naturally regenerate bone and gum tissue. No healthy tissue is harmed!
Does LANAP hurt?
No, LANAP laser therapy doesn’t hurt.
The primary cause of pain associated with periodontal surgery is scalpels and sutures, which are not used in this treatment.
We also numb your gum tissue during the procedure to prevent potential discomfort.
Afterward, you’ll experience less pain, swelling, sensitivity, and bleeding than traditional periodontal surgery. Healing is also quicker and more comfortable.
In some cases, your gums may feel a little tender a few days following treatment. If it ever becomes uncomfortable, over-the-counter medication will help.
Still worried about pain?
Ask us about sedation dentistry, which helps you feel calm and relaxed throughout your appointment.
How long does LANAP surgery take?
LANAP laser therapy usually consists of two 90-minute appointments. We’ll complete one side of your mouth per visit.
How much does LANAP laser surgery cost?
The cost of LANAP is comparable to traditional periodontal surgery and varies depending on your case.
Since recovery is minimal and you don’t need to take extensive time off work, it may be more financially reasonable.
Book a consultation to find out how much LANAP will cost you.
Will LANAP save my teeth?
LANAP is the only laser-based surgery with FDA clearance for True Regeneration™. It can save teeth that have become loose due to gum disease by regenerating bone and tissue that was previously lost.
This helps you avoid tooth extractions and consequent procedures to replace the missing teeth, such as dental implants.
However, the key to saving your teeth with LANAP is to get treated sooner than later.
