The Sapphire Portable diode laser is the ideal laser for both a first-time user as well as an adjunct workhorse for the seasoned dental laser practice. Clinicians can perform multiple procedures with minimally invasive precise incisions while eliminating bleeding at the site and accelerating healing time. Finger-touch control makes the Sapphire easy to use, and it also includes an optional footpedal to relieve hand fatigue. It features 3W of continuous output and 5W of peak pulse output at an 808-nm wavelength as well as convenient disposable tips that don’t require stripping or cleaving of fiber. It also contains an internal lithium-ion battery that allows for up to 40 minutes of continuous operation at full power. This permits the clinician to move between operatives and experience the benefits of portable laser technology. For more information, call (800) 445-0345 or visit the Web site denmat.com.
