Zolar Technology & Mfg Co. Inc. (a Canadian Venture) has released the PHOTON Series of soft tissue diode lasers: Photon and Photon Plus for Dentistry, announced by Paul Atkins (Executive officer for Zolar) on March 1, 2013 at their Mississauga location. The Photon Plus laser operates at 10 watts of power, which can be used for many dental as well as medical procedures. The Photon laser operates at a reduced power of 3 watts which can perform 98% of the recommended dental procedures.

The Zolar team feels proud to share the experience of one of the leading dentists, Dr. Craig Kohler, after he used Zolar lasers, and Zolar is posting his view point as such to share in this news.

What Craig feels after using ZOLAR:

"I have used the Photon Plus and highly recommend it. My previous diode laser did not have disposable tips. This feature allowed me to bend the tip and have easier access to difficult areas in the mouth. (See my video working on the mesial of an upper second molar on YouTube, http://youtu.be/ckn92I6mPjU.) The footprint of the laser is smaller than other diode lasers that I have seen. The unit is compact (4"x 6"x 7") and it operates with battery as well as with Direct AC (while the battery is on charge) which the dentist can move from one operatory to another making the unit available to be used at any time. Other dental equipment is difficult to move and the dentist has to either purchase more than one unit or only complete a dental procedure that requires the diode laser in one operatory. If one operatory is dedicated to the diode laser, this can back up work flow. The dentist will have to wait for sterilization of the operatory in order to use the diode laser on a number of consecutive patients.

"The Photon and the Photon Plus have 21 and 22 preset settings respectively, for the different common uses of the laser in many areas of Dentistry. Each setting has the suggested value of power, pulse, e.t.c., which helps any first time dentist to make selections about what he/she would like to do. An example would be when removing gum tissue for an impression on a crown the setting would come up automatically to 2 watts. IF THE DENTIST WANTS TO CHANGE THE POWER, he/she can easily do so to have more or less power as he/she desires.

"There is an extensive tutorial in the software which navigates any first time user to enjoy the benefits of laser dentistry that can be accessed on the laser screen to help with any procedure that the doctor needs help with. This helps with using the laser for as many procedures as possible, rather than the initial few the dentist is comfortable with. The laser can be used for endodontic, periodontal procedures, soft tissue surgeries and teeth whitening.

"The cost of the unit is surprisingly low compared to the other diode lasers on the market. The unit is sturdy and well made. They have a three year warranty, a post warranty consulting and support services contract. I would recommend any dentist interested in a diode laser to look at this unit, I am sure they will be glad they did." (Craig S. Kohler D.D.S., M.B.A., M.A.G.D.)

Paul Atkins further added, "Zolar has many such kind of experiences from the world of dentists who felt amazed after using photon series. Please feel free to contact us and visit www.zolartek.com to enjoy the benefits of laser world and be part of the community."
