The most efficient and affordable carbon dioxide laser system currently on the American market, along with improved flexible waveguides, handpieces, and the most requested laser tips. The LightScalpel LS-1005 carbon dioxide laser system is intended for use in surgical procedures such as incision, excision, vaporization, ablation, or coagulation of soft tissue in specialties such as dentistry, general surgery, and podiatry. The LightScalpel LS-1005 flexible waveguide laser system offers greater control of beam spot size as well as the benefit of rapid defocusing for both safety and versatility.
The LS-1005 soft tissue surgical and dental laser is a perfect fit for a general practice dentistry or surgical office. It is a capable workhorse for dental specialty offices offering services in periodontics, orthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry.
The LightScalpel soft tissue surgical/dental laser with its accessories features flexibility and precision in every way:
Does the laser pay for itself in terms of the vast amount of time it’s saving me, the lack of needing second appointments and followups? Absolutely. Take troughing for example - the laser quickly eliminates 15-20 minutes of cord-packing time. Multiply that out - having done crowns for over 20 years with the laser - efficiency is a huge cost saver for me.
The SuperPulse wave configuration works much faster and creates much less tissue damage. I use SuperPulse for almost all of the “cutting” procedures, like gingivectomies and frenectomies – it’s a big advantage to have it… in general, the SuperPulse is a great advancement in CO2 lasers…
