Improve Your Smile With Biolase

Woodland Hills, CA dentist offers biolase

In the past, invasive dental treatments like periodontal care could take longer appointments and cause some discomfort. Thanks to advancements in technology, these can now be completed with more ease and effectiveness. Biolase Epic X can be used for a variety of treatments, including cosmetic options and periodontal cleanings. In today’s blog, Woodland Hills Dental Arts is here to explain the variety of benefits that this technology can offer.

Managing Your Gum Disease

If you have been diagnosed with gingivitis or other stages of periodontal disease, it is crucial to have deep cleanings done. With the use of laser technology, these can be done more efficiently and in return, help you manage your symptoms with more ease. Instead of uncomfortable scaling and root planing procedures, our Epic X laser can help clean oral bacteria to prevent your gum disease from progressing. Without treatment, periodontal disease can cause bad breath, gum recession, and tooth loss. With the help of this technology, you can prevent these side effects from developing.

Assisting in Cosmetic Treatments

In addition to managing your oral health, Biolase can also assist in cosmetic options as well. If you are looking for a way to remove stains from your pearly whites, we can use this technology during our professional teeth whitening services. This is safer than store-bought whitening kits and can be completed in a single appointment. Brightening your smile can leave you with more confidence and improve your appearance.

For patients with “gummy” smiles, we also offer gingivectomies. This is the process of reshaping your oral tissues to show more of your teeth, leaving you with a more symmetrical smile. Using Epic X allows the process to be more comfortable for you.

Targeting Cold Sores

If you have fever blisters, also known as cold sores, laser therapy can help reduce the symptoms that often occur with this problem. Cold sores are caused by the HSV-1 infection. They can be uncomfortable and easily contagious to others. Biolase can help reduce the appearance of fever blisters. This will also reduce the risk of spreading it to others. Canker sores can be treated with this as well. These are different than fever blisters, as they are caused by factors such as stress, certain foods, and other irritants.

Biolase can also be used to help with pain management and crown lengthening treatments. Instead of needing a variety of tools and a series of treatments, this laser technology can gently target the necessary areas, helping to restore and recover your smile faster.
