In our recent Tech Census Survey, we asked what type of laser dental professionals are using, what their buying plans are and what might be holding them back from completing the purchase if they haven't yet. Out of the 63 respondents, 60% said they are already using a dental laser in their practice. Eighty-one percent of those are diode lasers.

In our recent Tech Census Survey, we asked what type of laser dental professionals are using, what their buying plans are and what might be holding them back from completing the purchase if they haven't yet.

Out of the 63 respondents, 60% said they are already using a dental laser in their practice. Eighty-one percent of those are diode lasers.

Interestingly, 22% of the respondents who don't have a laser said it's not a good fit for their practice.

The quality of care and service that you offer patients is paramount, and any product decision you make should begin with the benefits it affords the patient. The truth is, technology in the hands of a well-trained and highly-motivated dentist and dental team can do just that. And when the practice down the street can perform a laser procedure with improved healing time and less discomfort - patients will notice.

Acknowledging that making a laser purchase is not to be taken lightly or without understanding which type of technology will work best in your practice, we've compiled a roundup of some of the best dental laser technologies available right now.

Millennium Dental Technologies

Patrick McCormick, CFO of Millennium Dental Technologies, talked with Thais Carter, Director of Content at Dental Products Report, about the PerioLase MVP-7 tablet controlled dental laser.

"We've taught the Android how to speak to the PerioLase," explained McCormick. "Dentists who use lasers will no longer be locked into "planned obsolescence," he said.

Millennium's PerioLase is proven with a program that is different from other dental lasers, according to McCormick. With control systems continually evolving, using a tablet control system provides an interface that can easily be kept up-to-date.

Biolase

Dr. Jared Van Ittersum, DDS, sat down with us to talk about the benefits of the Waterlase MD Turbo laser from Biolase.

"The really incredible thing about it is you can jump right into the procedure because you can get so much further without any anesthesia," explained Van Ittersum. "I have not had a single patient who said they would prefer the older method and that's pretty awesome."

AMD Lasers

The Picasso Lite diode laser from AMD Lasers is characterized as an affordable laser featuring a touch screen with 8 programmable presets and modes, a multiple language menu and low annual operating costs to make it easy to integrate throughout the practice.
