Lasering in on Precision Dentistry

Get laser dentistry in Anchorage, AK.

At Alaska Premier Dental Group, we feel our patients deserve the best. This includes the best in dental technology. The powerful, precise, highly-concentrated beam of light originally known as Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is so ubiquitous that the acronym has now been relegated to lowercase.

Innovative Laser Technology

Lasers are used in everything from weapons to barcode scanners. They have increased efficiency and advanced technology in numerous industries such as communications, manufacturing, and essentially every branch of science. Today’s post focuses on how lasers have impacted dentistry.

Lasers Have Changed the Face of Modern Dentistry

Lasers are now used in many state-of-the-art Alaska dental practices for a broad range of care. Laser dentistry allows dentists to be extremely precise when working on both tooth and gum tissue.

Dentists use lasers to:

  • Remove decay while preserving more intact tooth material
  • Firmly attach bonding material to a tooth
  • Remove oral lesions or obtain tissue for biopsies
  • Reshape receded gums
  • Eliminate bacteria while performing root canals
  • Increase the effectiveness of tooth-whitening agents

Dental patients benefit with:

  • Fewer stitches – some surgical procedures require no sutures when a laser is used
  • Faster healing
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Decreased damage to surrounding tissue/bone
  • Less pain–eliminates the need for anesthesia in many procedures
