The LANAP® Procedure
Dr. Chan is specially trained to perform the LANAP® procedure, a laser technique that treats periodontal disease without the use of a scalpel or sutures. Traditional gum surgery requires the cutting and trimming of the gum tissue, often resulting in a lower gum line and increased sensitivity to hot or cold. The LANAP® Laser Procedure allows Dr. Chan to treat your gum disease without cutting the gums and harming the healthy tissue. This FDA and Health Canada Approved laser procedure is minimally invasive and most patients are able to resturn to work the next day.
