Applications and Benefits
Versatile Tools for Smile Design
As a dentist, providing state of the art dental procedures is a top priority, and iLase excels as a clinical instrument for reshaping and redesigning the smiles of your patients.
iLase is effective at modifying, adjusting or refining structures to adjust alignment and spacing, whether in preparation for orthodontics or veneers. Adjusting tooth length through “crown lengthening” procedures is a straightforward, easy-to-master procedure that can generate new revenue, and more importantly, patients beaming with a dazzling new smile.
iLase is also a dynamo in regard to sculpting and refining soft tissue around the gum line to establish harmony and symmetry to your patients’ smiles.
Soft Tissue Surgery Made Simple
The differences between a laser and a scalpel when used for oral surgical procedures is stark. While scalpels have a long list of physiological and psychological effects on the patient, BIOLASE lasers enable you to quickly cut, sculpt or modify soft tissue when needed.
During many procedures, managing the soft tissue can be problematic if it begins to bleed or respond unpredictably. With BIOLASE lasers, achieving hemostasis and controlling the surgical zone are as easy as tapping a pre-set on the laser’s touch screen.
Avoid the pitfalls and complications of using scalpels or other cutting instruments by turning to a BIOLASE laser to achieve your soft-tissue objectives....
Comprehensive Care for Kids
As a pediatric dentist, providing primary and comprehensive dental treatment for infants, children, teens and special care patient is of utmost importance.
With antsy, impatient young patients in the chair, BIOLASE lasers will equip you with the ability to deliver comfortable, quick, atraumatic dentistry. Reduce, or even eliminate the needle and drill in many hard tissue cases, and enjoy the ease and elegance that a laser brings to managing the surgical zone during the procedure.
Our diode lasers are indicated for many bread-and-butter pediatric procedures, such assoft tissue surgeries and more, with far less invasiveness and trauma than traditional methods.
The American Academy of Periodontology’s (AAP) guidelines emphasize that “periodontal health should be achieved in the least invasive and most cost-effective manner to the patient.” This is accomplished with Non-Surgical Periodontal treatment, which is typically a regimen of scaling and root planing and other minimally invasive methods of mitigation.
With the addition of minimally invasive BIOLASE lasers into the non-surgical perio regimen, a Dental Hygienist (where local and state regulations permit) can offer the benefits of non-surgical laser therapy to their patients while providing state-of-the-art care. Epic X and iLase diode lasers are an adjunct to traditional scaling and root planing and can reduce post-treatment bleeding....
Expand Your Endo Horizons
In a time when dentists and patients are facing more challenges in their day to day, a root canal can be a tough thing to experience. As every dental professional knows, there are far more root canals than there are teeth – and maintaining their health is of paramount importance to every dental office. In fact, 75% of all root canals treated are performed in a general dental practice.
Diode lasers effectively fight endodontic infection and can perform root canal disinfection and cleaning, open dentinal tubules, decontamination prior to obturation, pulpotomy and pulp extirpation, and smear layer removal in the canal.
