Lares introduces low-priced dental lasers

Lares Research has introduced the LightWalker line of lasers, the first hard- and soft-tissue laser series for dentistry priced less than $30,000, the company announced.

Available in both single Er:YAG and dual Er:YAG/Nd:YAG wavelength models, LightWalker lasers are designed to perform fast cavity preps (usually without anesthetic), virtually all soft-tissue surgical procedures, and minimally invasive laser endo and perio treatments, Lares noted. The lasers are made by Fotona, a European laser manufacturer.

The LightWalker laser is available in three models of varying prices. The single-wavelength 8-watt model ST-E Er:YAG laser is designed for hard tissue, soft tissue, and the Lares PIPS endo protocol. The dual-wavelength 8-watt model DT adds Nd:YAG laser capability for expanded soft-tissue options. The dual-wavelength 20-watt AT model features an upgrade option for aesthetic treatments such as wrinkle removal, permanent hair removal, and skin resurfacing.

Lares also offers training courses to teach users how to operate their laser and perform basic hard- and soft-tissue laser procedures.
