Lanap & Implant Center all about teeth

At the Lanap & Implant Center of Pennsylvania it’s all about treating people for their special dental needs while making their visits there as comfortable as possible.

Patients can undergo tooth replacements, laser gum therapy and treatment for any of various complex dental problems.

LANAP, also known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, utilizes laser technology to remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from gums, allowing the body to heal naturally and the teeth to become more stable.

It’s an alternative to surgery.

Dr. David DiGiallorenzo, who heads up the practice at 2685 Euclid Ave., South Williamsport, noted that the procedure is less invasive for patients. That means less pain and bleeding, faster healing, and little to no gum recession.

“We can do your entire mouth in one visit,” he said. “We can have regeneration of bone and attachments as opposed to traditional gum surgery.”

It’s all about saving teeth, he noted.

LANAP is the only FDA-approved laser-based treatment of gum disease.

Gun disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy problems, and increased risk of pancreatic cancer.

However, some teeth simply cannot be saved.

The Lanap and Implant Center also performs single and multiple tooth replacements in a single visit.

State-of-the-art 3D imaging provides precise detection, resulting in the best overall treatment outcomes. Painless and brief scanning allows joints and adjacent structures to be seen from every angle.

Dr. Henry Hsu noted that patients can undergo procedures in a comfortable setting.

Licensed massage therapists will perform foot rubs.

But that’s not all.

“We offer oral sedation aromatherapy,” he said. “We strive to keep the patient as relaxed and comfortable as possible.”

Karen Lundy, director of patient relations, noted the experienced staff of the practice.

“We have a really good team here. We all know what we have to do,” she said.

DeGiallorenzo has been practicing in the Williamsport area for more than 20 years.

In November, he moved the practice to its present location at 2685 Euclid Ave., DuBoistown.

“We have patients from all over,” Lundy said.

The practice includes five operating rooms.

“We spend a lot of time with our patients,” Lundy said. “They are not just a number here. We pride ourselves in taking good care of our patients and truly getting to know them.”
