The Biolase Epic X
What is Epic Laser Dentistry?
Treating Oral Lesions:
Cold sores and canker sores make everyday tasks like talking and eating more difficult than they should be. The Biolase Epic X can help to immediately relieve that pain and treat sores on your lips, tongue, inner cheek, and gums.

The Biolase Epic X equipment can also be used to for pain therapy, specifically for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain. A condition known as Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) tends to cause pain and stiffness in the TMJ. TMD arises when a patient has potential trauma to the neck or head, or when a patient consistently clenches or grinds their teeth.
The Biolase Epic X will temporarily increase blood circulation and relax the muscles in your jaw, while relieving pain and stiffness. Additional treatments may be required after the initial 5-10 minute treatment.
Biolase Epic X can also be used for teeth whitening after a fast and easy procedure that offers great results. At the start, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated by the laser technology. The treatment will then lighten yellowed, dark, or discolored enamel caused by common stain-causers such as tobacco, food, coffee, and more. You’ll notice immediate results once the 20-minute procedure is complete.
The Biolase Epic X can be used in a number of treatments. The laser can be used to help fix “tongue tie” which can affect your speech or cause gum recession. When tissue connections restrict movement, the laser will help to release the connection.
A “gummy” smile can also be treated with the Biolase Epic X. By shaping the gums, it’s possible to improve the appearance of your smile. The laser will safely remove excess tissue that may make a smile look more “gummy” or make your teeth look irregularly shaped.
Lastly, the Biolase Epic X can remove growths called fibromas or small “tags” called papillomas. These are typically a result of a traumatic bite on your cheek or tongue.
