The Benefits of LANAP® Cutting-Edge Gum Disease Treatment for Queens, NY

For Patients

Minimal Pain and Post Surgery Discomfort – Because the laser targets only the diseased tissue in the periodontal diseased pocket, Dr. Krishnan is able to remove the bacteria without cutting or stitching, resulting in a more comfortable patient experience. Pain medication is rarely prescribed after a laser gum surgery procedure and a short healing time.

Faster Healing and Shorter Recovery Time

The Periolase® MVP-7™ eliminates the bacteria and reduces the inflammation immediately without affecting the healthy regenerative connective tissue, allowing your body to heal quickly.

Mitigation of Gum Recession and other Cosmetic Oral Issues

Because traditional periodontal surgeries require cutting the gum tissue to clean the bacteria away, these procedures always entail some degree of gum recession. In contrast, patients experience little to no gum recession with LANAP® gum disease treatment because the surgeon does not cut any connective healthy tissue, and the laser kills bacteria selectively by removing it from the healthy tissue. This offers a minimally invasive (or more holistic in some regards) approach to gum disease treatment. Limited gum recession is just one of the many reasons that patients come to Dr. Krishnan for this innovative gum disease treatment in Queens, NY.

Elimination of Inflammation and Controlled Bleeding

The PerioLase® MVP-7™ removes about 100% percent of the inflammation after one treatment and Dr. Krishnan is able to control bleeding with the LANAP® protocol.
The number one reason Dr. Krishnan’s patients choose the LANAP gum disease treatment is because they want to save their natural teeth and prevent long term bacteria spreading in their mouths to keep their healthy smiles for years to come.
