LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser can eliminate dental caries tissue in a non-contact mode, without any vibration, vaporizing very precisely only the infected dental tissue, leaving the healthy layer of the tooth without carbonization or cracks .The good visual operating area permits good control of the caries ablation, thus eliminating just the dentin that has lost the ability for remineralization.
The bactericidal property of LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser guarantees good disinfection of the contaminated dentin, therefore preventing the formation of secondary caries under the restoration and possible pulp complications. The Laser irradiation used with gentile treatment can help the Enamel to become more resistant to caries attack.
LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser can be used for the composite resin removal without increasing the pulp temperature and without removal of heathy enamel and dentin. The minimal invasive approach for composite replacement increases the longevity of the re-restored tooth.
