With 7 watts of peak power, XD-2 is designed for procedures such as frenectomies, gingivectomies, crown lengthening, papillectomies, gingivoplasty, treatment of aphthous ulcers, removal of diseased tissue within the periodontal pocket, photocoagulation, soft-tissue curettage, and laser-assisted whitening.
At just over 2 lb, the compact, handheld laser is a good choice for clinicians making their first laser purchase, the company said.
The laser is manufactured by Fotona, a European manufacturer of all-tissue dental lasers.
