The Oh Lala Web Experts office recently needed to add dental insurance for our employees health care plans. We wanted to find a good dental clinic in Anchorage and found many amazing dentist. Some had more reviews than what was necessary, others looked like they were desperate for new patients but a few dentists in Anchorage actually stood out.
Here was a list of our criteria and what we were looking for in the best dentists:
Tooth related injuries and conditions can be frustrating, painful and embarrassing, to say the least. It is in this respect that Alaska has more than one dental clinic. Most dental clinics in Anchorage, Alaska perform regular tooth services such as teeth whitening, removal of teeth, treatment of periodontal diseases, emergency dental situations such as knocked-out or chipped teeth and dentures among others. At dental clinics, patients receive red-carpet treatment from the clinic’s staffs so that they can calm down and have stress and pain-free dental experiences.
Do they offer Dentures?
Losing a tooth, several teeth or all teeth, can be very depressing in that not only does the mouth and face, largely, lose aesthetic value, but also eating and or speaking become difficult. Thanks to dental clinics in Anchorage lost teeth can be rectified through the replacement with synthetic teeth. Dentures must be tailor-made for each person; depending on his/ her mouth shape and the number of teeth that need replacement.
Two major types exist;
partial and full denture. A partial denture replaces one tooth or several teeth, which have come out for whatever reason; whether knocked out, removed because of infection or due to age.
A full denture, on the other hand, replaces all the teeth. Full dentures can fall under conventional, where the remaining teeth must be removed and the gums allowed healing before the denture replacement, and immediate full denture, done when the gums are still raw with wound.
We found that Alcan Dental offers dentures service in Anchorage and has been offering dentures for many years.
How about emergency dental care?
No one expects to have any tooth/ teeth accidents, but they happen anyway. People can get teeth knocked out or chipped during contact sports, motor accidents and or any other accident that hits the mouth. In such cases, the knocked out or chipped tooth needs immediate attention to relief the patient off pain, reduce bleeding, avoid infection and or reinstate the tooth if possible. Patients in such conditions must press sanitized gauze/ cloths on the mouth or bleeding tooth, and keep the knocked out teeth in clean containers. Toothaches and tooth infections gone really bad (such as abscess) also warrant urgent dental care.
Do they have some form of teeth whitening service?
A large percentage of the world’s population, not to mention in Anchorage, suffers colored teeth. The condition can, however, be reversed through the teeth whitening process carried out in Anchorage dental clinic. A whitening gel, applied on the teeth and activated by light, seeps into the tooth’s enamel making them look brighter. ZOOM is a high quality tooth whitening treatment, so any dentists offering this service probably has other quality services. You can read about ZOOM teeth whitening at their main website here.
Why we chose Alcan Dental Group
Since dental health is a very important part of regular health care, choosing the best dentists was important for us. Regular cleaning of teeth must be faithfully exercised to avoid some of the most common tooth problems. However, regular dental consultation is important as it enables early detection of problems and provides appropriate treatment. This dental clinic offers a wide range of services beyond regular cleanings, such as dentures, whitening and emergency care among others.
