Heals Fast
With LANAP, there’s less bleeding and pain than surgical treatments. You’ll likely feel great in less than a day!

Minimal Discomfort
After LANAP, you’ll likely need only ibuprofen or aspirin before getting back to your daily routine.

Advanced Laser Technology
LANAP specifically targets diseased gum tissue and promotes the growth of healthy gum tissue.

Reduces Risk of Infection
Traditional surgery brings with it a significant risk of infection. LANAP virtually eliminates pain, infection, and complications.

Healthy Tissue Growth
LANAP increases circulation and removes diseased tissue. This actually helps promote strong and healthy gum and bone.

Fights Gum Recession
Traditional surgery can lead to gum recession. This isn’t the case with LANAP — you’ll be less likely to suffer from receding gums.

The staff is friendly and supportive, which also reflects highly on Dr. Blodgett.

Is The LANAP Procedure Right For You?

Don’t settle for Eugene gum disease treatments that don’t deliver the desired results. Dr. Blodgett is among the most experienced and skilled gum disease dentists in the Pacific Northwest.

Learn he uses LANAP to cure gum disease, regrow healthy gum tissue, and prevent gum recession.

Here’s how LANAP works…

  1. Dr. Blodgett gently numbs your mouth and takes measurements of your gums.
  2. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ eradicates diseased tissue and removes bacteria from deep below the gumline.
  3. An ultrasonic instrument is used to clean tartar from the tooth’s root and to help the bone heal.
  4. Dr. Blodgett uses the laser to seal the treated area with a stable blood clot.
  5. Finally, Dr. Blodgett equalizes your bite and makes sure your gums are securely attached to your teeth.

Answers to Your Questions About Gum Disease & The LANAP Procedure

Is gum surgery more painful than gum disease? How is LANAP different from other gum disease treatments in Eugene?

Remember: LANAP isn’t surgery. The procedure doesn’t involve a scalpel or stitches. Plus, LANAP produces better results without the painful and slow recovery of surgery. The LANAP laser is designed to target diseased and infected gum tissue. It even helps your bones and gums get stronger!


What happens if I ignore gum disease? Can it affect my overall health?

Unfortunately, the pain of traditional gum surgery often prevents people from seeking treatment. The results can be devastating to their health. Eventually, untreated gum disease may lead to tooth loss, abscesses, infections, and gum recession. Untreated gum disease can lead to (or exacerbate) disease and conditions including:

  • Heart disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Strokes

Your mouth is a gateway to your whole body. Inflamed and infected gums allow bacteria and infection direct access to your bloodstream.


What are common warning signs of gum disease?

Be aware of symptoms like:

  • Red, puffy, swollen, and bleeding gums
  • Sensitive gums that are irritated when brushing or flossing
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Receding gums

The best and most reliable way to diagnose gum disease is through a holistic dental exam at Dr. Blodgett’s Portland office.


Will LANAP be paid for by my dental insurance?

Your dental insurance policy may cover some cost of your LANAP laser gum treatment. If you’re having trouble understanding your coverage, Dr. Blodgett’s office staff can help. Call (503) 285-3620 to learn more.
