Say Goodbye to Gum Disease with LANAP® Treatment
If you are suffering from gum disease and need a fast, effective solution to treat the infection, talk to us about laser gum therapy with the LANAP® protocol. LANAP® laser gum surgery is a proven method for treating gum disease in Evansville, IN and has helped many of our patients restore their oral health. Dr. James Woodyard uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to target infected tissue and promote healthy healing. Dr. Woodyard was among the first doctors in the area to offer LANAP® treatment and has extensive experience working on all types of cases and is the only level 5 provider by the The Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry.
What to Expect with Laser Gum Therapy
Laser gum therapy is an advanced treatment option for patients diagnosed with gum disease in Evansville, IN. The targeted laser works to kill bacteria in the mouth without damaging healthy gum tissue. There is no cutting involved so the doctor will not place stitches. Instead, the laser is passed over the area a second time to trigger blood clot formation over the treated area. Your body will produce compounds that support the healing process naturally and you will see results within a few days.
Key Benefits of LANAP® Treatment
- Minimally-invasive treatment
- No downtime
- Fast healing time
- No scalpels or sutures involved
After Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Most patients enjoy results with laser gum therapy after a single treatment and the gums heal very quickly. This is why Dr. Woodyard turns to the LANAP® protocol when he discovers a patient has mild to moderate gum disease. Simply passing the laser over the infected areas is enough to target bacteria and help the gums heal. After treatment, we may need to see you regularly with a periodontal maintenance plan.
