The active medium of the diode laser is a solid state semiconductor made of aluminum, gallium, arsenide, and occasionally indium. All diode wavelengths are primarily absorbed primarily by tissue pigment (melanin) and hemoglobin. These are poorly absorbed by the hydroxyapatite and water present in the enamel.
These wavelengths include:
• Treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity
• It is a big help in all the impressions, traditional and-or optical.
In this device you have the equivalent of a ring flash, twin flashes, diffusers and a polarizer, and you can combine these different lights to take new kind of dental pictures. The use of this device is so easy, all you have to do is connect your smartphone to the device, turn on the light that you want, open the camera, be at 10 to 20 cm far from the teeth, Zoom, Focus and take the picture.
Soft tissue application: includes wound healing, removal of hyperplastic tissue to uncovering of impacted or partially erupted tooth, in general for all soft tissued cut. It is Very useful in optical impression , with or with our powder. Diode deeply decontaminate hard tissues because of its low affinity with water and hydroxyapatite especially when used in addiction with h2o2.
Many dentists think that a Laser is almost an electrosurgery 2.0. I want to make one point very clear: the specific tissue cut and the ability to support the healing process, makes diode laser really different from an electrosurgical scalpel. Electrosurgery damages minimum 400 cells layers, a Diode maximum 2 to 5 cell layer, thus allowing a faster healing and no colliquation.
Laser can target in a very specific way depending on its wavelength (water for erbium and dark pigments as melamine and hemoglobin for diode laser), while electrosurgery is absolutely non specific.
Diode lasers can be really helpful in caries diagnosis and actually increase the sensibility and specificity of our diagnostic process.
It is critical to note that laser treatment is an addiction to – not a replacement for – conventional treatments.
Laser beam can be totally absorbed, reflected, deflected or transmitted.
By selecting the correct power and wavelength we can hit a target through another tissue: this ability is used in many medical surgery techniques. These can easily create eye damage if not adequately protected.
Protecting your eyes is of utmost importance, just as protecting those of your patient and your assistant. Lasers can damage in different – but always severe –ways your eyes! These Gemini Safety Glasses are included in the kit when you buy the Laser.
Specific action on the retina.
We can have also specific eye protectors for our patient.
