Lasers have been used in dentistry for many years now, and are among the tools we have at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper.
We don’t know about you, but lasers can make us think about science fiction. The word is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser device emits a powerful, highly-concentrated beam of light. (Didn’t we all love the amazing laser weapons in ‘Star Wars?’) Lasers are used in hundreds of applications in almost every Wyoming industry including communications, researching, manufacturing, entertainment and medicine.
Lasers are now used on both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissue. Lasers allow us a degree of precision that was previously impossible.
How do lasers benefit dental patients?
- Fewer stitches (some surgical procedures require no sutures)
- Shorter healing time
- Decreased chance of infection
- Less damage to surrounding tissue/bone
- Increased patient comfort – anesthesia is often unnecessary
We use lasers dentistry in crown lengthening, decay detection, bacteria removal in root canals, gum recontouring, biopsy, lesion removal, and tooth whitening.
The latest dental technology is useless without the skill and experience necessary to deliver the best possible outcomes. The team at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper has many years of experience. We provide a full range of family dentistry procedures. Make an appointment today.
