Advanced laser technology to fight back against gum disease.
Utilizing laser dental tools and technology, Dr. Alger provides patients with pinpoint-precise treatments while reducing healing time.
What is laser therapy?
The word L.A.S.E.R. is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulation of Emission Radiation. Laser uses light energy instead of a scalpel to remove or treat gum tissue, and there are times when Dr. Alger may decide that the laser is his instrument of choice when performing a periodontal surgical procedure.
Is laser therapy safe?
There is an abundance of research published in dental journals indicating that there is a place for laser treatment. At the same time, some of the claims that are being made about dental laser therapy are exaggerated and are not supported by scientific research and statistical findings.
Dr. Alger will gladly discuss treatment options available for you, including alternatives to conventional surgical treatment, including laser therapy.
