Choosing the right dental laser for your practice
Now may be the best time ever to invest in a dental laser.
The Waterlase iPlus, BIOLASE’s flagship all-tissue laser, offers dentists the enhanced benefits of completing many common dental procedures with minimally invasive laser energy combined with a fine water spray to gently remove hard- and soft-tissue. The latest model now incorporates REPAIR Perio and REPAIR Implant, two power laser-based protocols for managing early-to-moderate periodontitis and peri-implantitis in a general dental setting. Both protocols leverage the gentle removal of diseased tissue and calculus. For tooth cutting, the Waterlase iPlus helps to eliminate the microfractures associated with traditional dental drills as well as thermal damage and cross-contamination risks. Additionally, the laser’s precision reportedly allows minimally invasive treatment with less removal of healthy tooth structure and soft tissue. For soft-tissue, the Waterlase iPlus ablates the target tissue layer by layer, which—according to the literature—enables dentists to perform oral surgeries with dynamic tissue response, less bleeding and faster healing.
