We are open - safety is our top priority!
If you are one of the many people who have put off getting dental treatment out of fear of needles, drills, and enduring long procedures, your life is about to change!
Traditional deep cleaning and gum disease treatment methods like scaling and root planing sound like frightening experiences to patients, as well as the discomfort, cost, and downtime that make treatment difficult. However, Epic Hygiene Biolase Treatment harnesses the advantages of laser technology to make treatments for gingivitis and periodontitis far more comfortable for you.
Epic Hygiene Biolase Treatment is a dental laser that uses low-level, gentle laser energy to perform a wide range of minimally invasive dental and periodontal procedures quickly, safely, and gently, with less bleeding, and often without requiring a needle of local anesthesia. The entire process is much more comfortable than alternative gingivitis and periodontitis treatment methods.
What is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis is a mild form of periodontal disease that causes swelling and irritation of the gums around the base of your teeth. Common symptoms and signs include swollen or puffy gums, gums that bleed easily when you brush or floss, and tenderness. Gingivitis is caused by poor dental hygiene, leading plaque to form on your teeth that turns into tartar that collects bacteria and collects bacteria, irritating your gums.
Regular treatment includes professional dental cleaning to remove all traces of plaque, tartar, and bacterial buildup, known as scaling and root planing.
What is Periodontitis?

Periodontitis is treated based on its severity. For less advanced cases, regular treatment includes professional dental cleaning to remove all traces of plaque, tartar, and bacterial buildup, known as scaling and root planing. For advanced periodontitis, treatment may require dental surgery.
What are the benefits of Epic Hygiene Biolase Treatment for Gingivitis and Periodontitis?
There are many benefits to treating gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis with laser therapy. This kind of treatment offers the following benefits:
- Better precision than other options, preserving most of the healthy tissue.
- Requires the use of less anesthesia.
- Decreases gum tissue trauma.
- Reduces discomfort and pain during the treatment process.
- Is faster than other treatment options.
- Helps promote faster healing times.
- Decreases the need for medications to be prescribed.
The biggest patient benefit of Biolase treatment is the expedited recovery time. The laser helps to disinfect the gum pocket so there is less concern about infection and can even reinitiate the reattachment of the tooth to the gums, both of which can help speed up the recovery process. Clinical studies (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s41547-017-0018-8) have confirmed that adding this laser treatment to manual tooth scaling and root planing procedures decreases the number of bacteria responsible for gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
In addition, Biolase treatment is also great for patients who are worried about bleeding. There is virtually little to no blood when these lasers are used which is another huge benefit and tends to make everyone more comfortable. Lasers are an advanced medical treatment option for managing patients with periodontitis. Treatment is far less invasive, and more comfortable for you. The result is less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort. Epic Hygiene Biolase even simulates faster healing while minimizing scarring while you heal.
