ANAHEIM, CA, USA: AMD LASERS, the company that builds the world’s most affordable dental laser technology, announces the launch of the Picasso soft tissue diode laser to the U.S. dental industry. With its sleek and compact design, ease of use, comprehensive clinical results and a broad spectrum of applications, Picasso sets itself apart as a high-quality laser with distinctive features such as a multiple-language menu and a lower price point than any other laser available on the market.

“I am excited to be the first company to give dentists and patients the laser technology they have been waiting for,” said President of AMD LASERS Alan Miller. “AMD LASERS is committed to bringing lasers to every dental office and to every operatory around the world. Dental patients need laser technology now more than ever.

“Picasso represents a breakthrough in technology and affordability. We are taking a leadership and pioneering role in dental lasers that no other company has — our mission is to place lasers in the hands of dentists and hygienists around the world. Our multi-language laser truly represents our commitment to dentists and patients.”

The Picasso is ideal for a wide range of endodontic, periodontic and dental surgery procedures. It allows for clean cutting and hemostasis in a wide range of soft-tissue procedures and cuts gum tissue with precision, thereby eliminating bleeding at the site and reducing healing time. Picasso also is being used to help sterilize canals in endodontics, treat periodontal disease and aid in tooth whitening.

Highlights of the new laser include a touch screen interface, continuous and pulse modes, eight customizable presets, adjustable aiming beam, U.S. and international power compatibility and a three-year warranty. As for its multi-language menu, this laser provides multiple options including English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese along with most European languages.

The Picasso introduces a new era in laser dentistry by providing an affordable and technologically sound device that every dentist could integrate into his or her practice. In line with its ongoing mission, AMD LASERS has set the price point low so as many dentists as possible can afford to experience its versatility in treatment care.

“We are proud to offer dentists three Picassos for less than one of what the other companies charge,” Miller said. “As other companies continue to increase their prices we have taken the leadership role in making the technology available for every dental practice.”

This laser package includes a transportation case, three pairs of protective goggles, one fibre and handpiece, a foot switch, scribe and stripper, a world power adapter, a basic training DVD, a quick-start guide, a manual and a three-year warranty.

AMD LASERS received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Picasso soft tissue diode laser on 20 March.
