EZLase & Epic-10 940nm Diode Lasers

picture of ezlase dental laserHow do the ezlase and Epic-10 work?  Are they safe?

The ezlase & Epic-10 are two of the most advanced dental instruments made today. They were developed by BIOLASE Technology, the number one company in dental lasers, with over 20 years of experience. BIOLASE dental lasers have been used to treat millions of patients.

The ezlase & Epic-10 create special, highly concentrated light energy, and sends it through an optical fiber to its handpiece. Dr. Rubinoff or your dental hygienist uses the handpiece to aim the laser energy at precisely the areas to be treated.

The laser energy used by the ezlase & Epic-10 was developed specifically to treat gum and other soft tissue in the mouth safely and comfortably. It can be harmful to eyes, however, so you, your dentist, hygienist and anyone else in the treatment room when the laser is being used must wear special protective glasses.
