AMD Litetouch® Technology designs innovative dental lasers to reduce the complexity and trauma associated with many common dental procedures. The drill (aka the ‘handpiece’) strikes fear into the hearts of many with its noise, vibration and heat.
The Litetouch® device utilizes hydrokinetic technology to remove hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets. There is no heat, no vibrations and no noise associated with the Litetouch laser, and it is completely safe. The FDA deemed the hydrokinetic laser safe for use on both adults and children in 1998.
The AMD Litetouch® is an extremely versatile piece of dental equipment. It can be used to either perform or expedite many procedures including:
- Caries removal.
- Cavity preparation.
- Dentin and enamel procedures.
- Gum lifts and reshaping.
- Removal of decay.
- Soft tissue procedures.
What benefits does AMD Litetouch® offer?
Litetouch® works by precisely combining atomized water and laser energy to gently remove hard and soft tissue. This precision laser means that in most cases, there is no need for anesthesia. Additionally, the laser actually sterilizes the surgical area, meaning that there is less risk of bacterial invasions or infections. For children and fearful patients, the Litetouch® offers a needleless, painless way to achieve the perfect smile.
Here are some reasons why using Litetouch® is preferable to the traditional dental drill:
- Adjacent teeth remain unaffected.
- Faster and stronger bonding of fillings.
- Less of the healthy tooth is removed.
- Minimal bleeding during and after procedures.
- No noise, heat or unpleasant vibrations.
- Pinpoint accuracy generates better results.
- Reduced number of dental visits.
- Reduced risk of post-surgical infection.
How are Litetouch® procedures performed?
Though each Litetouch® procedure differs in detail, some elements remain constant. First, protective eyewear will be provided to protect the eyes. Second, a small Litetouch® laser will project streams of atomized water to cut into the hard or soft tissue. The laser sterilizes as it moves, which means that in the case of soft tissue augmentation, the whole procedure can be completed in a single visit.
The Litetouch® laser increases comfort levels, reduces anxiety and reduces cost. In addition, it is one of the least invasive, most effective tools that dentists have at their fingertips. Litetouch® can significantly improve the health of the teeth and restore the beauty of the smile.
