Ultradent's Gemini Laser Gets Upgrade with Photobiomodulation Tip

One of the things that has always fascinated me about lasers is how they can perform procedures that offer almost no post operative pain.  During my over 20 years of laser usage, I’ve done some fairly extensive soft tissue surgeries that have been painless.  At first I was stunned, but now I expect it.  Lasers also have the proven ability to decrease inflammation and pain response in tissues that have undergone some type of injury.

When tissues have been injured, exposing those areas to laser energy has a profound affect resulting in decreasing the negative aspects of inflammation.  This is referred to as photobiomodulation (PBM).

Now comes word from Ultradent that their Gemini laser can be fitted with a PBM tip which diffuses laser energy per square millimeter and places it over a larger area.  Here is what the company has to say:

The Gemini Laser Just Got Better
The Gemini laser now has a PBM adapter, allowing you to offer pain management therapy for TMJ and other discomfort your patients may experience. Photobiomodulation (PBM), or low-level laser therapy, is a non-invasive photo-chemical reaction where light energy of a certain wavelength, intensity, and duration is absorbed at a cellular level, improving local circulation, oxygenation, and enzyme activity. It has been clinically tested and shown to help improve tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation. It’s a new way to take even better care of your patients.

Gemini™ PBM Adapter
The Gemini PBM Adapter Kit allows clinicians to offer pain management therapy during a laser procedure through photo biomodulation (PBM). Light energy is absorbed at a cellular level, improving circulation, oxygenation, and enzyme activity.

Kit includes:
PBM Adapter
Software update—adds “Pain Relief” preset under “Hygiene”
Single use spacer tips (2)
Handpiece holder clip
Cleaning cloth
User manual

Benefits of PBM include:
  • Temporary Pain Relief
  • Improved Local blood Circulation
  • Relaxation of Muscle
  • Decrease in Inflammation
  • Faster Healing
  • Improved Cellular Function, especially in Stressed Cells
