Advanced Periodontal Care for Lasting Results
Our goal is to help patients maintain healthy gums for life. Our board-certified periodontist in Evansville, IN, has extensive experience working with laser technologies to treat infection in the mouth. Once we have the infection under control, we will need to see you regularly for periodontal maintenance visits. We also perform bone and soft tissue rebuilding procedures using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to speed up the healing and recovery process.
Patients treated for gum disease are put on our periodontal maintenance plan to ensure the infection does not return. Your visits may include a series of deep cleanings and checkups at regular intervals throughout the year. This gives us a chance to monitor the health of the tissues and ensure the infection is not coming back.
Ridge Augmentation and Preservation
If you have lost bone and gum tissue after gum disease or an injury, you may be a good candidate for a ridge augmentation or preservation procedure. Dr. Woodyard uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to rebuild the tissue around the tooth socket and restore the gum and bone structures. PRP is especially effective for speeding up healing at an injury site and can increase the chances of a positive outcome with your procedure.
Other Periodontal Services
Dr. Woodyard also performs several other periodontal services to treat gum disease and restore the health of your gums. He uses innovative techniques to reshape the gums and trigger the natural healing process. Some patients diagnosed with severe gum disease enjoy numerous benefits with osseous surgery.
