The EPIC Laser System
The EPIC Laser system offers three different state-of-the-art treatment processes. These streamlined procedures make your time with us more comfortable and produce better outcomes than traditional treatments.
Gum Surgery: If you are experiencing bleeding or inflamed gums or you have noticed that your gums are receding, you are probably seeing the signs of gum disease. Treatment with the EPIC laser removes the inflamed areas with less discomfort, less bleeding, and faster healing times than traditional gum surgery.
Gummy Smile: A “gummy” smile occurs when too much gum tissue is exposed, making your teeth seem irregular in shape or size. EPIC Surgical treatment can improve the appearance of your smile by shaping the gums. This process is referred to as gingival contouring and safely removes excess gum tissue comfortably and quickly.
Tongue Tie: This occurs when the band of tissue under your tongue is too short, restricting movement and affecting your speech. Using the EPIC Surgical laser, this tissue is “released” without anesthetic or sutures.
Oral Growths and Cold Sores: The EPIC Surgical laser can also be used to comfortably remove small “tags” or papillomas, growths that usually result from a traumatic cheek or tongue bite. Cold sores can also be treated, decreasing healing time and reoccurrence.
EPIC Laser Pain Therapy
Do you suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD)? Until recently, the only options for treatment were night guards and relaxation techniques.
These are still effective therapies, but now we can combine them with the pain relief provided by EPIC Laser Pain Therapy. This topical heating treatment temporarily increases blood circulation and relieves discomfort by helping muscles relax. The standard procedure takes about 10 minutes per side and is usually offered in a series of 2 to 6 treatments to provide relief from annoying TMD symptoms.
EPIC Laser Teeth Whitening
Lots of professional teeth whitening products promise results in under an hour. But you have more important things to do with your time than sit in the dental chair, so we offer EPIC Laser Teeth Whitening. Using EPIC, we can now whiten your teeth in as little as 30 minutes right here in our Vienna, VA dental office.
A hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to your teeth and activated by the laser. You will experience much less sensitivity than with other whitening methods, but please let us know if you worry about sensitivity. With EPIC Laser Teeth Whitening, our doctors can easily adjust the level of laser energy delivered to ensure your complete comfort.
EPIC Laser Teeth Whitening treatment lightens yellowed or discolored enamel caused by tobacco and beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine. You will be thrilled to see the beautiful results immediately after the procedure!
