We strive to provide our patients and their families with quality care, so they can obtain their best smiles and enjoy better oral health. As part of this commitment, we often implement advanced technology in our treatments. In today’s blog, your North Hollywood, CA, dentist is talking about the benefits of the BIOLASE® Epic X dental laser.
When Do We Use Dental Lasers?
Dental lasers employ a concentrated beam of light, one that has been specially calibrated to handle soft tissue concerns. We can use this to address a variety of oral health concerns. For example, if you have periodontal disease, we can remove the diseased portions of your gums, so healthy tissues can reattach to the teeth and make the disease more manageable with preventive care moving forward. We can also destroy pockets of harmful bacteria in the process.
Our team can also conduct a crown lengthening procedure, in which we remove and reshape gum tissues to make room for crown placement. Our team can also address gummy smiles, which display too much gum tissue. The procedure allows us to reshape the gum line and remove excess tissues in the process thoroughly and gently. We can help destroy bacteria and buildup in a deep cleaning procedure, and also shrink and destroy cold and canker sores to offer relief faster than traditional medications. We can even use them to remove stains from your teeth or decay from your teeth, helping you enjoy better oral health and a brighter smile in the process.
The Benefits of the Epic X Laser
Dental lasers mean we don’t need to use scalpels and sutures as part of your treatment. As a result, we can target the treated areas with better precision and accuracy, preventing damage to healthy tissues and structures. In addition, this also means the areas heal quickly, and you can return to your normal routine in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Procedures typically only take a day to complete too! The technology destroys harmful bacteria to reduce the risk of swelling, bleeding, and infection afterward. The procedure also rarely requires the use of dental anesthesia too, so the process is comfortable and effective. If you have any questions about how we use dental lasers to improve the health and beauty of your smile, then contact our team today to learn more. Now is a great time to see us, as you can potentially see optimal results before the holidays are here, and you can use your remaining 2023 dental benefits before they expire.
