HOYA ConBio's (Fremont, CA) flexible replacement fiber for its DioDent dental laser models promises to provide optimum performance for a wide variety of soft-tissue dental procedures.
Designed to help eliminate fracturing and enable simplified pocket maintenance, the durable fiber was tested through 100 steam sterilization cycles and showed no degradation in transmission or reliability. Bendable tips enable easy posterior access and a nick and fleck cleaving delivers fast fiber preparation and an assured flat fiber tip.
The fiber kit includes a fiber spool and mount to add to the existing system that conveniently stores the fiber. The new handpiece locks the fiber in place securely, preventing the fiber from pulling out or pushing in. The fingertip jacket stripping eliminates the need for tools.
The fiber is available as a replacement for the DioDent, DioDent II and LVIlase models, and is integrated into the newer soft tissue laser, the DioDent Micro 980.
The DioDent dental laser system was introduced in 2002 to provide safe and effective soft tissue modification and pocket depth management. The DioDent Micro 980, introduced in 2007, is a next-generation diode laser for use in a wide variety of procedures, including excisional and incisional biopsies, fibroma removal, gingivectomy, gingivoplasty, oral papillectomies and sulcular debridement.
