Hoya ConBio announces the new chisel tip is now available for their DELight Dental Laser. The tip is made of high-quality sapphire, and is ideal for a wide variety of soft-tissue procedures because it ablates very efficiently in a series of "dashes" rather than the "dots" obtained from standard cylindrical tips.
"Even with the DELight's advantage of its 30 hz repetition rate, this shape produces a cleaner line or incision compared to cylindrical tips when ablating soft tissue," says Thomas Haney, vice president, dental products. "The tip also can be used with a water spray to cut hard tissues, including bone."
Because of its unique shape, the flat side of the tip can be used to guide it along a surface that will not be affected by the laser because the tip is end-cutting only. The working length is approximately 15 mm and tapers from a 1 mm diameter input to a 1.4 mm by 0.4mm rectangle. This adds yet another option to Hoya ConBio's wide variety of tips. The chisel tip can be used with the laser's straight sleeve or the right angle handpiece.
