Dr. Lu Offers Laser Dental Surgery

Excelling in laser dental surgery, Dr. Lu is part of one percent of dental professionals in the country trained in LANAP. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is the only form of laser dental surgery cleared by the FDA. It treats gum disease by removing diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. This laser dental surgery is a successful periodontal treatment because it stimulates a new attachment of the tooth to the bone, thus helping patients keep their teeth. LANAP® is the only laser treatment supported by scientific research and patient histological studies.
