Lasers CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Dental lasers enable precise, efficient, minimally invasive treatment. Categorized as soft-tissue lasers or lasers for cutting both soft and hard tissues, or by the medium used to create their energy, each laser’s wavelength has a specific thermal output and tissue interaction.

Diode (830nm-1,064nm), Nd:YAG (1,064nm) and CO2 (9.3nm-10.6nm) lasers are used primarily on soft tissue. They enhance visualization by cutting and sealing simultaneously, and tend to minimize postoperative pain. Diode and Nd:YAG energy penetrates a few millimeters into tissue, while CO2 energy penetrates less than a millimeter, producing excellent coagulation.

Among the growing indications for soft-tissue lasers are frenectomies, biopsies, periodontal treatment, and aphthous ulcer destruction. Some diodes have settings for pain treatment and whitening, and a 655nm diode helps to identify caries, which fluoresce upon exposure to this wavelength.

Erbium-based lasers (2,790nm-2,940nm; Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG) cut tooth and bone, as well as soft tissue. Erbiums produce hemostasis less effectively than soft-tissue lasers but, with penetration measured in microns, tend to be gentle on tissues.

Erbiums are effective for a wide range of applications, from cavity preparation, caries removal and composite removal, to ulcer treatment and use in advanced periodontal protocols. Many erbium-assisted procedures can be performed without anesthesia.

The IRS Section 179 allows dental practices to purchase capital equipment and benefit from significant tax deductions. The deduction limit for Section 179 is $500,000, so it’s a great time to take a look at the technology you’ve...

    Versatility, convenience, power, and affordability…four words that describe the iLase diode laser from Biolase. But the words I like best are “pocket portability.” The laser is powerful enough to do everything from removal of hyperplastic gingiva to the treatment of aphthous ulcers. It’s pre-programmed with the most common soft-tissue...
