From versatility to gentler treatments, the Photon soft tissue diode laser from Zolar offers many benefits.

The Photon soft tissue diode laser from Zolar is a three-watt laser said to be well suited for dental surgery and the improvement of esthetics. The Photon features a 810 nm wavelength, continuous and pulse modes, is completely wireless, has a 3-4 hour battery life and has the ability to program 21 treatment presets and four customized presets.

1. Gentler treatments: The Photon works on patients and causes little-to-no pain, depending on the patient. The laser works with minimal discomfort and bleeding-producing very few incisions requiring stitches-which makes the Photon optimal for dentists who frequently work on sensitive patients. The Photon’s laser also helps with post-op healing and decreases inflammation and patient recovery time. Additionally, the pain-reducing nature of the Photon greatly limits the need for anesthetics.

2. iI’s versatile: The laser reportedly can be used for a variety of operations, including removal of diseased, infected, inflamed and necrosed soft tissue within the periodontal pocket; laser periodontal; laser soft tissue curettage; removal of edematous tissue; sulcular debridement; and dental intraoral soft tissue general, oral maxilla-facial and cosmetic surgery.

3. User-friendly: The Photon features a touch-screen monitor, reportedly providing easy navigation. It is password protected, meaning a key isn’t needed for operation. The handpiece is flexible and easy-to-use, and the Photon comes with bendable disposable tips for easy maneuverability during procedures.

4. Added Plus: The Photon also features a foot-pedal control for easy, hands-free operation.
