IRVINE, Calif., March 24, 2020 — BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, is pleased to announce the Epic Hygiene™ laser received regulatory clearance for Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) therapy indication from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This new indication now allows for the early management of periodontal disease utilizing laser light energy to reduce bacteria and thus decreasing inflammation and enhancing periodontal health.

The new indication allows hygienists to perform gentler, highly effective treatments for bacterial reduction and managing periodontal disease.
