Laser Dentistry Offers Comfortable Treatment

To offer quality care with precision and comfort, we could recommend treatment with the BIOLASE® Epic X dental laser. This replaces the scalpel and sutures for many hard and soft tissue treatments, and helps address issues with unraveled accuracy! In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about laser dentistry.

Our BIOLASE® Epic X Laser

The laser uses a concentrated beam of light that allows us to treat both hard and soft tissue problems with accuracy and precision, and could even be used for routine smile maintenance. Our team has been trained in the use of this technology, and can offer treatment for preventive, cosmetic, and even restorative issues and periodontal maintenance.

Treatment Options

We can use this in combination with a bleaching gel to brighten teeth by several shades in only one visit. We can also perform gum contouring, in which we trim away excess tissue and reshape the gum line to improve overall esthetics in only one sitting. Our team can also offer crown lengthening with better precision for esthetic smile improvement. We can also manage pain too, provide noninvasive oral and maxillofacial therapy, and even treat cold or canker sores. For those with periodontal disease, we can use this to destroy harmful oral bacteria, remove buildup, and gently trim away diseased tissues too. This helps reduce the depth of periodontal pockets and allows healthy tissues to adhere to the teeth. Afterward, we can begin managing the disease with simple cleanings every three to four months.

The Benefits of Lasers

This technology is often used in lieu of traditional scalpels and sutures. We can treat specific areas of the smile and avoid damage to healthy surrounding tissues. There is rarely need for anesthesia or even sutures, so the area heals faster. The technology has been shown to prevent bleeding and infection, and to allow things to heal in as little as one day of rest, so you return to your normal routine in a shorter time frame. Procedures can be addressed in one sitting, and you’re less likely to need immediate follow-up visits too.

If you have any questions about how we use this technology, or about our other systems that provide detailed planning, custom restorations, and more, then contact our team today. We’re ready to help your entire family enjoy good oral health for years to come, so you and everyone you love can smile with confidence.
