    Congratulations on looking into your treatment options for the treatment of gum disease. Gum disease is a truly debilitating disease resulting in bone loss, tooth loss and difficulty in eating and chewing. In addition, there are certain systemic issues related to the presence of gum disease.

    LANAP is one treatment method which has been available for several years. It is available from general dentists and periodontists who have been trained in the procedure. Involving a laser to treat the disease, it can be relatively pain-free and cost effective compared to more traditional treatment options.

    Fees can vary clinician to clinician and may also be affected by various insurances and coverage limits. $5000 may be reasonable depending on these factors and your location. Let me know if you have any other questions.
