What are the Benefits of BIOLASE®?


BIOLASE® is an advanced laser system that provides comfortable alternatives to treatments that traditionally involve surgery and scalpels. With the use of this impressive new technology, Dr. Naminik is able to provide residents of the Woodland Hills, CA area with superior dental care, often without the use of sedation!

What is It Used For?

Cosmetic dental work is made much easier and more effective with the use of laser technology. With the BIOLASE® system, teeth whitening can be done quickly and safely in only one trip to the office! Gum contouring can be completed in a single session with minimal discomfort and more lifelike results, allowing us to safely remove excess tissue and improve overall smile beauty. We can perform a periodontal cleaning with incredible precision and effectiveness, protecting your gums from the dangers of periodontal disease, which could include adult tooth loss! Your teeth can be more successfully restored through crown lengthening procedures. The technology can even help provide non-invasive pain relief!

How Does the Laser Work?

Here at Woodland Hills Dental Arts, we use the BIOLASE® Epic X diode laser, which shoots out a concentrated beam of light that can be used to perform a number of traditional dental procedures in addition to nontraditional procedures, such as treating canker and cold sores. Since there is no need for scalpels, there is often a quicker healing time and less risk of bleeding or infection following treatment. That means less discomfort during and after the procedures and a quicker turnaround so that you can get back to enjoying your smile, usually after just one treatment. This is a huge improvement from previous surgery methods which might leave you groggy from anesthesia and require you to come back another day to complete the procedure.

Comfort and Precision

Because BIOLASE® uses precise laser technology where a dentist once would have needed to scrape your teeth with a scalpel, it is much more comfortable than traditional methods. Many procedures won’t even require anesthesia, which can mean a quicker recovery and fewer complications

Also, because of your increased comfort, your dentist will be able to complete procedures more effectively. The more relaxed you are, the quicker and easier it is for your dentist to get your smile healthy and beautiful.
