Dr. Alice Wu - Laser Periodontal Surgery (LANAP) in Raleigh

What to Expect During LANAP Surgery?

Surgery using LANAP provides a fast, minimally invasive way to treat gum disease. During the procedure you can expect Dr. Wu to use laser energy that targets and removes diseased tissue while preserving healthy gums in order to minimize discomfort.

A tiny laser fiber that’s about the size of a human hair is inserted between the tooth and gum.The laser clears the infection away without any need to cut into the gums. Dr. Wu will thoroughly clean the tooth roots to ensure all plaque and tartar are removed. Finally, a different setting on the laser is used to create a blood clot that seals off the pocket.
