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 procedures, and it doesn’t need cords, foot pedals, or any external controls to get the job done. That’s all great stuff, but the cherry on top is that you can easily carry it from one operatory to another by simply slipping it into your pocket and walking across the hall. You can learn more about the iLase by watching this video.
