The Epic Pro, which offers the most laser power of any diode laser in dentistry, is the first
product to be introduced resulting from BIOLASE’s strategic development agreement
with IPG Medical. The newest addition to the Epic family of dental soft-tissue lasers, Epic
Pro features several new innovations that are industry-firsts:
- A new super pulse technology for more precise, enhanced laser tissue cutting
- Real-time automatic power control to enhance speed and consistency when performing surgery with pre-programed tip temperature
- Pre-initiated, bendable, disposable tips with new smart tip technology to ensure tip performance and quality
Automatic Power Control: Epic Pro cuts four times faster1 than a classic diode laser with
minimal collateral damage. In this treatment mode, the laser in continuous wave mode converts light energy to thermal power at the tip. Laser energy is adjusted automatically in real time to maintain constant tip temperature. The result is extremely consistent and reliable cutting conditions, regardless of speed of movement, tissue type, etc.
Super Thermal Pulse: Epic Pro can achieve ten times the peak power of a standard diode (and up to three times that of the closest competitor) laser in short micro-pulses for the highest cutting efficiency and safety. In this treatment mode, the laser converts light energy to thermal power, which it emits as thermal power pulses, (i.e. multiple bursts of high power). Each of these thermal bursts cuts tissue highly efficiently. When the laser is activated, power bursts are emitted with a preset pulse width (duration), while maintaining a precise thermal level at the tip. The laser is powered on only about 3-5% of the time, giving tissue ample time to relax between pulses; creating a safer and gentler experience for patients.
