Laser Assisted Dentistry

Toothsmiths Dental Centre and Clover Medical Centre utilizes the Biolase Epic 10, the latest offering from BIOLASE (a market leader in the field of dental lasers for the past 25 year).

While all diode lasers cut tissue using heat, many of them can increase tissue temperature excessively, causing patient discomfort. The Epic 10 keeps patients more comfortable two ways.

Its 940 nm wavelength, developed exclusively for dentistry by Biolase, is better absorbed by hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin than other wavelengths, so the Epic 10 cuts efficiently at lower power and with less heat.This unique combination of features means you can perform most laser procedures using topical anesthetic only.

The EPIC 10® diode soft-tissue laser platform from BIOLASE Inc, Irvine, Calif, recently won the gold medal for Dental Instruments, Equipment, and Supplies at the 15th Annual Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA).

Soft-tissue Surgery

The Epic 10 offers the most precise control of tissue cutting for different procedures and tissue biotypes. The soft tissue applications include gum surgery. Gum re-contouring, de-pigmentation, pocket therapy, endodontic disinfection, abscess treatment, frenectomy and minor gingival surgical procedures.
The Epic 10 uses better bendable tips for better access to all areas, and offers single-use disposable tips for quick, convenient treatment, and improved cleanliness.

Temporary Pain Therapy and Relief

The Epic 10 is FDA cleared for temporary relief of minor pain. The exclusive beam-dispersing handpiece has several therapeutic applications, including providing temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness.

20-minute Laser Whitening

Epic 10 is also an ideal teeth-whitening tool. A full-mouth, in-office whitening can be performed in only 20 minutes, faster than any other in-office whitening system.
