AMD LASERS today announced the introduction of the Picasso Lite soft tissue dental laser. Priced at $2,495, offering 2.5 Watts of power, and three customizable presets, Picasso Lite is the most affordable and easy-to-operate dental laser in the world. It was designed specifically to replace the archaic use of scalpels and electro-surge in the treatment of soft tissue.
"With Picasso Lite, we accelerated the paradigm shift in dentistry that began with the introduction of the Picasso soft tissue laser in 2009," said Alan Miller, President/CEO of AMD LASERS. "We have 'One Vision, One Goal' — equipping every operatory with a laser. Record numbers of dentists are purchasing Picasso, and I'm sure Picasso Lite's more attractive price and ease of use will quickly make it the most popular laser in the world. Picasso Lite was designed specifically for first-time laser dentists and hygienists and, at one-fifth the cost of other lasers, it's truly affordable. We've shipped Picassos to over 50 countries, and the number of dentists and distributors interested in Picassos is truly amazing. I think the real winners are the patients."
Picasso Lite cuts and coagulates tissue with reduced trauma, bleeding, and necrosis of tissue and is used for soft tissue surgery, including troughing, gingivectomies, frenectomies, exposing implants/teeth/ortho brackets, and treating aphthous ulcers and herpetic lesions.
Featuring an ultra-compact, lightweight, and sleek design, Picasso Lite comes complete with an easy-to-learn set-up DVD, online laser certification, accessories, world power adapter, and two-year warranty. Another first for the laser industry is Picasso Lite's ability to use convenient disposable tips or a low-cost strippable fiber.
"We are proud to offer Picassos and now Picasso Lites free of charge to universities and dental schools globally illustrating our commitment to education and charity," said Miller.
