INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana--AMD LASERS, a company that builds dental laser technology, has announced the launch of the Picasso soft tissue diode laser to the U.S. dental industry.
With its sleek and compact design, ease of use, comprehensive clinical results and a broad spectrum of applications, Picasso has distinctive features such as a multiple language menu and a low price point.
"I am excited to be the first company to give dentists and patients the laser technology they have been waiting for," said Alan Miller, president of AMD LASERS. "AMD LASERS is committed to bringing lasers to every dental office and to every operatory around the world. Dental patients need laser technology now more than ever. Picasso represents a breakthrough in technology and affordability. We are taking a leadership and pioneering role in dental lasers that no other company has. Our mission is to place lasers in the hands of dentists and hygienists around the world. Our multi-language laser truly represents our commitment to dentists and patients."
The Picasso offers a range of endodontic, periodontic and dental surgery procedures. It allows for clean cutting and hemostasis in a range of soft-tissue procedures and cuts gum tissue with precision thereby eliminating bleeding at the site and reducing healing time.
Picasso is also being used to help sterilize canals in endodontics, treat periodontal disease and aid in tooth whitening. Highlights of the new laser include: a touch screen interface, continuous and pulse modes, eight customizable presets, adjustable aiming beam, U.S. & International power compatibility and a 3-year warranty.
As for its multi-language menu, this laser provides multiple options including English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese along with most European languages.
The Picasso provides an affordable and technologically sound device that dentist could integrate into their practice. In line with its ongoing mission, AMD LASERS has set the price point low so as many dentists as possible can afford to experience its versatility in treatment care.
"We are proud to offer dentists three Picassos for less than one of what the other companies charge. As other companies continue to increase their prices we have taken the leadership role in making the technology available for every dental practice," said Miller.
This laser package includes a transportation case, three pairs of protective goggles, one fiber and handpiece, foot switch, scribe and stripper, world power adapter, as well as a basic training DVD, quick-start guide, manual and three- year warranty.
AMD LASERS received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) March 20, 2009, to market the Picasso soft tissue diode laser.
