Soft Tissue Laser Device

Soft Tissue Laser Overview:

CULVER CITY, California–Discus Dental’s NV Microlaser has been named Best of Class Technology award winner for 2010 by the Pride Institute.

The Discus Dental NV Microlaser delivers full power and capabilities of much larger desktop soft-tissue lasers in a pen-sized package. First introduced in 2008 as the Styla Microlaser from Zap Lasers, NV Microlaser is now part of Discus Dental’sline of soft-tissue diode lasers.

The microlaser features cordless portability, disposable fiber tips, and a long-lasting rechargeable battery.  Activation by a wireless foot pedal provides enhanced flexibility and mobility.  Freedom to move the grip allows unobstructive access and visibility for posterior procedures.

A dental laser is a type of laser designed specifically for use in oral surgery or dentistry.

In the United States, the use of lasers on the gums was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the early 1990s, and use on hard tissue like teeth or the bone of the mandible gained approval in 1996.

Several variants of dental laser are in use, with the most common being diode lasers, carbon dioxide lasers, and yttrium aluminium garnet laser. Different lasers use different wavelengths and these mean they are better suited for different applications. For example, diode lasers in the 810–900 nm range are well absorbed by red colored tissues such as the gingivae increasingly being used in place of electrosurgery and standard surgery for soft tissue applications such as tissue contouring and gingivectomy. Erbium lasers are both hard and soft tissue capable.They can be used for a host of dental procedures, and allow for more procedures to be done without local anesthesia. Erbium lasers can be used for hard tissue procedures like bone cutting and create minimal thermal and mechanical trauma to adjacent tissues. These procedures show an excellent healing response. Soft tissue applications with Erbium lasers have rapid healing times with minimal postoperative pain. ND:YAG lasers are used for soft tissue surgeries in the oral cavity, such as gingivectomy, periodontal sulcular debridement, LANAP, frenectomy, biopsy, and coagulation of graft donor sites. The Nd:YAG laser wavelength is absorbed by pigment in the tissue.These lasers are often used for debridement and disinfection of periodontal pockets. Their ability to form fibrin allows them to seal treated pockets.
