The BIOLASE® Epic X
We use the BIOLASE® Epic X dental laser in our procedures. The soft tissue laser can perform a number of general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures, offering a wide array of benefits over traditional scalpels, drills, and periodontal procedures. Now, let’s look at the specific procedures we perform using this advanced technology.
Procedures Employing Advanced Laser Dentistry
For patients with gum disease, we remove infected tissue to allow healthy gums to adhere to the teeth and reduce the risk of periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease responsible for tooth loss. We also use the lasers to perform gum contouring, removing excess gum tissue and shaping the gum line to improve smile esthetics. Using the technology in our periodontal cleanings (also known as scaling and root planings) destroys harmful bacteria and helps improve the health of the gingival tissue. Other cosmetic applications include teeth whitening and crown lengthening. We also remove cold sores and canker sores, addressing common and uncomfortable oral health issues.
The Benefits Lasers Offer
First, they provide unrivaled precision and accuracy. Treatment rarely requires any anesthesia and significantly reduces the risk of bleeding and infection following treatment. Patients also enjoy a faster healing period and treatment is often provided in a quicker timeframe. If you have any questions about our advanced dental technology, or if you think your smile could benefit from laser dentistry, then contact our team today. We’re ready to help you achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile.
