Portable Diode Laser Dentistry’s first microlaser, the pocket-size, wireless NV MicroLaser is completely portable yet just as powerful as conventional soft-tissue lasers. The NV Microlaser from DenMat puts diode laser technology in your hand with a convenient, cordless device. The first of its kind, it is one of the smallest, lightest lasers on the market. NV is activated by a wireless foot pedal, providing better flexibility and mobility than hand-activated lasers, while allowing unobstructed access and visibility with posterior procedures without finger fatigue or loss of dexterity.
I LOVE my laser!!!
I purchased this NV Microlaser in 2007. At that time it was a "Zap Styla" laser, Zap being the parent company. I owned and used this laser through several sales of the company, but it didn't matter. This little unit was excellent, and as it became part of Discus Dental's line, (renamed the NV laser), then Phillips, then Zila, I always was able to get the disposable tips, and the support people were great. I understand Zila lasers have now been purchased by DenMat. My favorite instrument has another new family! I did the online training after I purchased the Microlaser, and after stalling the use of it, I finally jumped in with both feet, and began using it on patients. What a remarkable instrument. I used it for every crown prep I did from that day on, and never packed cord again. I used it for frenectomies on children, with just topical anesthetic. I did fibroma removals, periodontal treatments, and much more. It is amazing for treating aphthous ulcers and cold sores. (Great practice builder, as a "free" treatment of cold sores, patients think you are amazing!) After using the laser for 2 years I finally managed to get to the 2 day laser certification course that was part of the purchase price of the laser. At that course, I also purchased the DVDs for procedures. What I discovered, was that I already used the laser for nearly every procedure covered in the DVD series!My husband partner and I sold our practice this year, and I am seriously considering purchasing a new laser, another Zila NV Microlaser, for my own use, since my "favorite instrument" went with the sale of our practice. I think this laser was the best investment in equipment I made in the last 10 years of our practice. It made my life as a general dentist easier, more fun, and more progressive. I keep telling my colleague friends they NEED to buy a laser, and I'll even do free training. Zila, (or DenMat, now) could use me as a sales rep, I like this instrument so much!

I had the sales rep bring this to my office when I was trying to decide which laser to purchase, and I hated this one. The rep couldnt get the code entered and then when we finally unlocked it, it times out very quickly. It was extremely slow with the presettings and didnt do what was advertised. I would not recommend purchasing
