The Waterlase MD Turbo all-tissue laser increases treatment acceptance, attracts new patients, and prevents cross-contamination. It offers a minimally invasive alternative to drills with injections for many restorative procedures—welcome news for anxious or fearful patients. With the proprietary YSGG wavelength (2,780 nm), up to 8W of power, and turbo handpiece, there is no noticeable difference in speed when cutting hard-tissue compared to conventional high-speed drills. It also provides therapy for moderate to advanced gum disease, promoting new attachment, and removing calculus. It can also clean and disinfect root canals after endodontic instrumentation. A February 2009 JCDA article showed bacterial contamination rates following resterilization of used dental burs and endodontic files can range from 15% to 58%. As most Waterlase procedures utilize single-use tips, this cross-contamination potential can be eliminated. For more information, call (888) 424-6527 or visit biolase.com.
