The last thing that you probably want to hear is that you have gum disease. However, if you are regularly experiencing signs like chronic bad breath, bleeding gums, swollen gums and red/tender gums, it is time to make an appointment with your dentist.

If it turns out that you have gum disease in Vicksburg, MS, you have options as one of our patients. This can include laser gum therapy using the LANAP® protocol, a revolutionary method for helping you treat and manage your periodontal issues.

How LANAP® Works

The LANAP® protocol uses laser-based equipment to get into the periodontal pockets where bacteria breeds and destroys hard and soft tissues. Using lasers, Dr. Nash can carefully and safely remove the diseased tissues, leaving healthy tissues instead.

Most patients feel no discomfort during LANAP®, and are often amazed at how fast they recover from this state-of-the-art treatment method.

The LANAP® Protocol Advantage

In addition to providing you with a more sanitized, healthier mouth, the LANAP® protocol has numerous advantages over more traditional surgical methods used to treat gum disease:

  • There is very little bleeding. This means minimal trauma to your gums, which leads to faster recovery times.
  • The procedure is very efficient. You won’t spend hours and hours in the dentist’s office when you opt for the LANAP® protocol.
  • The outcomes are excellent. Most patients find that their bodies react positively to having laser gum surgery for their periodontal disease.
  • There is no need for general anesthesia. A local anesthesia or similar numbing agent is enough to desensitize the nerves around the surgical area.
  • The practice is well-received and well-regarded. When performed by a trained dentist like Dr. Nash, laser gum therapy should produce excellent outcomes for patients of all ages.

If you or someone you care about is struggling with the effects of advancing, untreated gum disease in or around Vicksburg, MS, please contact us. We are here to help, and are happy to show you our LANAP® protocol equipment so you understand your options.
