Harnessing the power of dental lasers

September 13, 2018

Rounding up some of the top products on the market.

Dental lasers are no longer a thing of science fiction. These powerful tools can perform highly demanded procedures from soft-tissue surgeries like frenectomies and gingivectomies to hard-tissue procedures such as caries removal.

Lasers also aid in treatment acceptance. Rather than deal with the shrill sound of a drill or the stick of a needle, many lasers on the market are said to offer patients anesthesia-free, no-cut procedures.

Aquamarine

• Due to an innovative wavelength of 445 nm with high absorbance in haemoglobin, Aquamarine is designed to cut soft tissues with less power, which is said to lead to lesser carbonization and thermal damage to tissues.
• The laser has four built-in treatment presets and 12 definable programs for each of the two possible users.
• Sterile EndoTips and UniTips and autoclavable ActivTips reportedly provide solutions for a faster and safer workflow.

AdvErL EVO

• The wavelength of this Er:YAG laser is said to be excellent for dental treatment because it’s readily absorbed by water and efficiently vaporizes human tissue that his high water content, reportedly affecting only the surface of that tissue.
• The laser is designed to produce very little heat, which keeps discomfort to a minimum.
• An array of tip options enables the laser to perform both hard and soft tissue procedures.
