Biolase launches new all-tissue laser
LEIPZIG, Germany: The US company Biolase is launching its new hard and soft tissue laser Waterlase C100 in Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Designed for the restorative general dentist, the laser will allow clinical procedures including cavity preparation, early stage periodontal therapy and soft tissue procedures with more patient comfort than conventional instrumentation, the company said in a press release.
Chief Executive Officer Jake St. Philip noted that his company has engaged in market research since he joined Biolase in January and that the results of those studies indicate that a broader product offering can increase the adoption rates across many segments of the dental market.
“This introduction marks the launch of a new product strategy
at Biolase,” he stated. “Our overall corporate mission is to transform the practice of dentistry and to make every dental practice a Waterlase Dentistry practice. Considering the broad range of clinical and cosmetic dental procedures made possible and more effective by our YSGG laser technology, offering a full range of products across the spectrum of price points should get us much closer to that goal.”
First deliveries of the new laser are expected to begin before the end of this year’s third quarter.
