New Biolase diode laser gains FDA nod

Biolase has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the Diolase 10 soft-tissue laser.

The 940-nm laser is designed for use in oral surgery, arthroscopy, gastroenterology, general surgery, dermatology, plastic surgery, podiatry, gynecology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, pulmonary surgery, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, dermatology, aesthetics, and vascular surgery, according to the company.

Biolase's diode lasers are used in dentistry for surgical soft-tissue procedures as an alternative to conventional devices, such as the high-speed drill, scalpel, or electrosurgery. Biolase's 940-nm wavelength is also FDA cleared for tooth whitening and temporary pain relief in a number of Biolase products.
