Laser ‘could benefit cosmetic dentistry patients’

Mon

People who are put off cosmetic dentistry procedures because of the drill may be interested to hear about a new laser.

In an article for the Daily Mail, it was noted the Waterlase MD Turbo could be used for a number of treatments.

As well as being proven to kill 99.7 per cent of bacteria in infected teeth, the technology can also trim gums and cure sensitivity in the mouth, the newspaper added.

Patients who require dental implants or root-canal procedures are likely to benefit from the laser, the publication pointed out.

Explaining the technology, it said: "Lasers work by emitting high-speed pulsed light and different frequency lasers will have different effects – some will burn through tissues, for example, while others will kill bacteria."

In other news that may interest cosmetic dentists, Astra Tech has teamed up with Dental Wings.

The former company – a dental implant maker – said the partnership would reduce the time and money needed to create abutments. ADNFCR-2621-ID-19393698-ADNFCR

Dental implant company forms new partnershipA recent business venture may well benefit cosmetic dentists and their patients.

The dental implant maker Astra Tech has announced a strategic alliance with Dental Wings.

Starting early next year, the partnership will allow the latter company to remotely transfer scans to the former’s design and manufacturing centres.

These will then be used to produce Atlantis abutments, which are made for each individual patient.

President and chief executive officer of the Astra Tech Group Peter Selley said the venture would help to increase the profitability and efficiency of dental laboratories.

"This new partnership … is an important step in our continued efforts … to further enhance our customers’ experience with Atlantis abutments, while reducing costs and turnaround times," he asserted.

Established in 1948, Astra Tech develops, manufactures and markets advanced medical devices and dental implants worldwide.

Dental Wings specialises in creating 3D scanners and computer aided design software for the oral health market. ADNFCR-2621-ID-19389106-ADNFCR
