At last week’s Hinman Dental Meeting in Atlanta, GA, Convergent Dental unveiled the newest addition to its line of handpiece products: Ultraguide. This precision-engineered handpiece is delivered with a 15/400 hollow waveguide and the industry’s first automatic alignment system for Solea—the first FDA-approved, CO2 9.3-micron dental laser for hard and soft tissue.
The Ultraguide is compatible with all currently available Solea systems. As for the 15/400 waveguide, it is specifically designed to improve access to periodontal pockets and other hard-to-reach areas in the oral cavity. The auto-alignment system works hand-in-hand with Solea and detects the center point of the laser’s 0.25 mm beam. It then communicates wirelessly with the laser to precisely position it through the exact center of the hollow waveguide’s opening.
