The purpose of gingival graft also known as a gum graft, is to create an adequate amount of attached gum tissue to reduce the likelihood of further gum recession. Another purpose for this procedure may be to cover exposed root surfaces, to enhance the appearance of the teeth and gum line, or to prevent or treat root sensitivity or root decay.

LANAP-Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure

Dr. Morarasu uses a minimally invasive alternative treatment to traditional Periodontal Surgery. Laser treatment involves no cutting or suturing and will help experience a faster, easier recovery with minimal postoperative pain, bleeding and swelling.

Reports are showing that LANAP results are similar to and sometimes better than traditional osseous surgery and with fewer side effects. Patients appreciate that there is little discomfort. Retrospective studies show that in 90% of the cases pockets are reduced by at least 50%. Histology shows there is true bone regeneration most of the time.

Doctor Morarasu was fortunate to be trained in LANAP with Doctor Raymond Yukna, who has done major research on LANAP.
