What Is the Epic Laser?
The Epic laser is a unique laser-based technology that combines focused light and thermal energy to accomplish various purposes. It has a number of different settings, so we can use it for a broad range of procedures, from cosmetic treatments to advanced oral surgeries. Many different types of dental lasers are on the market today, but after thorough research, we decided to invest in Epic because of the many advantages it offers.
Uses for the Epic Laser
We can use the Epic laser as the key instrument in a number of different procedures, including:
- Periodontal therapy. Epic is able to kill disease-causing bacteria beneath the gum line and give the gums a chance to heal.
- The laser can gently trim away excess gum tissue to improve your smile’s appearance.
- Removing oral lesions. Canker sores and cold sores can cause significant pain. The Epic laser can remove such growths and provide fast relief.
- Teeth whitening. In as little as 20 minutes, the Epic laser can dramatically whiten your teeth.
- A laser provides a fast and comfortable way to address tongue tie and lip tie.
- Various oral surgeries. For many types of oral surgery, the Epic laser eliminates the need for scalpels and sutures.
- Pain relief. We can use the laser as a therapeutic device to promote blood flow to painful areas and relax tense muscles, thus providing fast relief.
Benefits of the Epic Laser
It’s true that it is possible to perform almost any of the above-listed procedures without a laser. However, we want our patients to enjoy the most comfortable, efficient experience possible in our office. That is why we have chosen to make the Epic laser part of our practice. Some of its most outstanding benefits include:
- Reduced bleeding and faster healing. The laser cauterizes tissue as it moves, which drastically cuts down on the amount of bleeding. It also reduces the risk of post-operative complications by killing bacteria.
- Reduced chair time. The Epic laser enables us to perform many procedures faster than ever before without compromising treatment outcomes.
- The laser is much more precise than a scalpel, which allows for more preservation of healthy oral tissues during surgery.
- Reduces need for anesthetic. For many procedures, the Epic laser completely eliminates the need for local anesthetic.
