To ensure our patients obtain care with precision and accuracy, we embrace advanced technology. With the BIOLASE® Epic X dental laser, we can address cosmetic, preventive, and restorative concerns in one visit, often without the use of anesthesia! In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist discusses the use of dental lasers in your treatment, and how we address cosmetic and restorative concerns!
The BIOLASE® Epic X
This is a unique soft tissue laser, which uses a concentrated beam of light to address an array of dental procedures. The laser makes treatment fast, and provides improvement with precision and accuracy, preventing damage to surrounding tissues. You won’t need sutures and the procedures don’t require scalpels at all. Since the laser cauterizes as it treats, this reduces the risk of bleeding, infection, or other complications. The treated area heals fast too, you often return to usual activities after only a day of rest! Treatment also rarely requires the use of anesthesia too.
We can use this laser to remove teeth stains in only one visit, brightening smiles by several shades. We first apply a powerful bleaching agent, and then use the system to remove discoloration. You leave with a noticeably brighter smile! Even if you have severe discoloration, we could help improve the esthetics of your smile in only one sitting.
Treating Periodontal Disease
This technology also helps treat periodontal disease to prevent worsening symptoms and tooth loss! We can use BIOLASE to remove harmful oral bacteria, reversing gingivitis and managing periodontal disease. We can also perform a gingivectomy to reshape the gum line, removing excess tissues and improving symmetry so you enjoy a more attractive and healthier smile. Addressing issues with your gums help ensure the stability of your smile, and also improves overall beauty as well.
We could also lengthen crowns to allow us to better treat damage and other issues with a tooth. If you have cold or canker sores, we can provide relief as well. If you have any questions about how we treat your oral health with advanced laser technology, or if you would like to schedule a consultation to learn more, then contact our team today.
