BIOLASE® 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 BIOLASE® is an extremely versatile piece of dental equipment. It can be used to perform or expedite many procedures including:
What benefits does BIOLASE® offer?
BIOLASE® 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 BIOLASE® offers a needleless, painless way to achieve the perfect smile.
Here are some reasons why using BIOLASE® is preferable to the traditional dental drill:
Adjacent teeth remain unaffected.
Faster and stronger bonding of fillings.
Less of the healthy tooth is removed.
Minimal bleeding during and after procedures.
No noise, heat, or unpleasant vibrations.
Pinpoint accuracy generates better results.
Reduced number of dental visits.
Reduced risk of post-surgical infection.
How are BIOLASE® procedures performed?
Though each BIOLASE® procedure differs in detail, some elements remain constant. First, protective eyewear will be provided to protect the eyes. Second, a small BIOLASE® 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 BIOLASE® 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. BIOLASE® can significantly improve the health of the teeth and restore the beauty of the smile.
