Laser dentistry allows for many dental procedures to be performed with no noise and very little pain. Drills work with friction and create heat, which in turn causes discomfort. Lasers target tissues without contact, heat, vibration, or pressure. They allow for many dental procedures to be performed pain-free and in fewer appointments. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. Laser dentistry is for children, teens, and adults.
At ProHEALTH Dental – Long Island City, we use the Biolase Epic X. Epic laser dentistry™ is one of the most advanced dental treatments today. Epic uses unique technology that combines focused light and thermal energy for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. Epic is fast, effective and easy.
