Q: I just had LANAP done four days ago and had my four front lower teeth extracted due to bone loss. I noticed a yucky white coating on my top teeth that makes the teeth look dirty. Is this normal healing? I think it looks gross and the rinse I was given does nothing to take it away. Will it go away?
A: The coating on your top front teeth could be fibrin. This is usually white in color and is normal in many instances following LANAP. It eventually turns into normal pink gingival gum tissue. However, this could also be dead epithelial tissue or white plaque buildup. Either way, I would follow up with your Laser Periodontist just to verify you do not have any infection in your mouth.
