Lares Introduces XD-2 Diode Laser

I saw this device on Saturday and sent a photo out via Twitpic, now here is more information. Lares Research has been in the laser business for over 10 years. They started out by selling an Nd:YAG (I bought one of the first ones) and then entered the hard tissue market with the fastest cutting Er:YAG laser about 5 years ago.

This is the first diode that Lares has ever sold. It's affordable and at 2 pounds you can easily move it around the office. Here is the press release:

Chico, CA: March 4, 2009— Lares Research has introduced the XD-2 Diode Laser, an exceptionally lightweight and portable laser system. With the XD-2, clinicians can offer a comprehensive range of soft tissue procedures without having to make a major investment. The laser is manufactured by Fotona, the leading European manufacturer of all-tissue dental lasers.

The Lares XD-2 Diode Laser is an affordable solution for dentists who want to increase the number of services they are able to offer patients. With 7 watts of peak power, the XD-2 can perform procedures such as frenectomies, gingivectomies, crown lengthening, papillectomies, gingivoplasty, treatment of aphthous ulcers, removal of diseased tissue within the periodontal pocket, photocoagulation, soft tissue curettage, and laser-assisted whitening.

The XD-2 is easy to use (there are 4 preset treatment options), and an intuitive operator interface allows the operator to quickly tailor parameters to specific treatments. At just over 2 pounds, the compact, hand-held laser is extremely user-friendly and is an excellent choice for clinicians making their first laser purchase.

Lares is a recognized leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of oral cutting technology, supplying dentists with precision handpieces and high performance lasers worldwide. The company has been an innovator in the field of dental lasers since it began offering lasers to dental clinicians in 1997. For more information, call 888-333-8440, ext. 2050, or go to
