About Oralase(TM)
-----------------
Oralase is an ergonomically designed portable low level
laser device that offers dental staff a proven, drug-free
solution to reduce or eliminate pain and accelerate soft
and hard tissue repair. Oralase is designed to effectively
control pain and decrease swelling from invasive dental
procedures as well as
stimulate healing.

About Low-Level Laser Therapy
------------------------------

For more than 35 years, LLLT has been used in Europe,
Australia, Asia and Russia for the treatment of pain
and tissue repair. MedX's LLLT was approved
in Canada in 1999 and in the United States in 2002.
LLLT uses a specific type of light to penetrate the
skin's surface and underlying tissues to stimulate
the body's natural repair processes. The result
is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and
inflammation. The technology has advanced laser therapy
significantly, and Oralase embodies the new
generation of photobiomodulation technology for
health care today.
