Soft-tissue diode lasers receive FDA clearance for dental, medical uses

Jan. 5, 2017
Two soft-tissue diode lasers have received FDA approval for laser-assisted pain therapy and surgical applications.

The Photon and Photon Plus soft-tissue diode lasers from Zolar Technology (Mississauga, ON, Canada) have received FDA approval for laser-assisted pain therapy and surgical applications, facilitating their use for a wide range of pain indications in both dental and medical offices.

"Temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain can be achieved through the application of laser light, resulting in increased local blood circulation that leads to relaxation of the muscle and pain relief. Other pain indications include muscle stiffness, minor arthritis pain, muscle spasms, sprains, strains, and muscular back pain, among other types of muscular pain," explains Paul Atkins, CEO of Zolar Technology.
