BIOLASE Technology Inc. introduced a new line of all-tissue lasers, the Waterlase MDX, at the annual Chicago Dental Society Winter Meeting.

Two models of the Waterlase MDX are available. The 8-watt Waterlase MDX 300 improves on BIOLASE’s time-tested Waterlase MD platform with an updated user interface, a new laser engine and a new lightweight and more flexible titanium fiber cable. The Waterlase MDX 450 increases the power output to 9-watts and cuts hard-tissue up to 70 percent faster than the Waterlase MDX 300, but is still approximately 40 percent slower than the Waterlase iPlus.

Most periodontal lasers cut tissue using heat. The Waterlase MD combines laser energy and a spray of water to cut soft tissue and bone without heat. In soft tissue mode, the laser energy penetrates into tissues to seal blood vessels as it cuts, providing hemostasis, which in turn provides a better field of vision during surgery.

CEO Federico Pignatelli commented in the press release:

“The new Waterlase MDX again demonstrates our engineering expertise and ability to design products for all segments of the global dental market. Our flagship laser, the Waterlase iPlus, is the most advanced laser ever produced for dentistry and, with its tremendous cutting speed and graphical intuitive user interface, addresses a wide range of clinical procedures with more than 50 presets. The new Waterlase MDX is the logical evolution of the Waterlase MD Turbo, the best selling all-tissue dental laser in history, and allows us to offer a blend of features from the Waterlase iPlus and Waterlase MD in a modernized platform to practitioners that do not require the advanced speed and functionality of the Waterlase iPlus.”
