Laser Gum Therapy
Periodontal disease caused by bacteria and plaque can lead to gum infection and tooth loss. Surgical treatments can be invasive and painful.
Drs. Roger B. Parkes and Clarke Stewart of Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. use laser gum therapy that is precise and comfortable.
Can laser gum therapy, or LANAP®, at our Jackson, MS, office eliminate your gum disease with little pain and reduced recovery time?

6 Benefits of Laser Gum Therapy
vs. Traditional Surgery
Because our doctors use the cutting-edge PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser rather than traditional scalpels, you can expect a more comfortable experience.
Our laser will instantly seal the incisions made in the treatment area, reducing bleeding and eliminating the need for stitches.
Less Recovery Time
In most cases, our patients can return to their normal routine after just 24 hours.
Our laser has anti-inflammatory properties, so swelling around the teeth is greatly reduced after treatment.
Less Gum Recession/Bone Loss
LANAP removes less gum tissue than traditional surgery, which reduces gum recession during healing. Also, our laser stimulates bone growth, so your teeth stay rooted in place.
Fewer Future Treatments
According to Dr. Parkes, results from laser gum therapy last years longer than traditional gum surgery methods.
A "Phenomenal" Experience High Praise from Smiling Patients
My experience at Periodontal Associates was phenomenal. The minute I walked into clinic, I was made to feel welcomed and cared for. The staff is so friendly, as well as efficient. Dr. Stewart is very personable, and he did an amazing job with my gum grafts. I healed very quickly with minimal pain. I feel as if I have new friends. I highly recommend Periodontal Associates of Jackson.View on Google
I am so thankful to Dr. Roger Parks for making me smile. I have always disliked my gummy smile and his expertise was amazing. I didn’t know I could do anything about it until I came to Periodontics of Jackson. His staff is great and so was my experience!View on Google
