BIOLASE® Epic X Diode Laser Technology designs innovative dental lasers to reduce the complexity and trauma associated with many common dental procedures. The drill (aka the ‘handpiece’) strikes fear into the hearts of many with its noise, vibration, and heat.
The Epic X Diode Laser device utilizes hydrokinetic technology to remove hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets. There is no heat, no vibrations, and no noise associated with the Waterlase laser, and it is completely safe. The FDA deemed the hydrokinetic laser safe for use on both adults and children in 1998.
The BIOLASE® Epic X Diode Laser is an extremely versatile piece of dental equipment. It can be used to perform or expedite many procedures including:
What benefits does BIOLASE® Epic X Diode Laser offer?
Epic X Diode Laser works by precisely combining atomized water and laser energy to gently remove hard and soft tissue. This precision laser means that in most cases, there is no need for anesthesia. Additionally, the laser actually sterilizes the surgical area, meaning that there is less risk of bacterial invasions or infections. For children and fearful patients, the Epic X Diode Laser offers a needleless, painless way to achieve the perfect smile.
Here are some reasons why using Epic X Diode Laser is preferable to the traditional dental drill:
How are Epic X Diode Laser procedures performed?
Though each Epic X Diode Laser procedure differs in detail, some elements remain constant. First, protective eyewear will be provided to protect the eyes. Second, a small Epic X Diode Laser laser will project streams of atomized water to cut into the hard or soft tissue. The laser sterilizes as it moves, which means that in the case of soft tissue augmentation, the whole procedure can be completed in a single visit.
The Epic X Diode Laser laser increases comfort levels, reduces anxiety, and reduces cost. In addition, it is one of the least invasive, most effective tools that dentists have at their fingertips. Epic X Diode Laser can significantly improve the health of the teeth and restore the beauty of the smile.
