In a move that expands the market for its products Biolase Technology has received US FDA approval to sell its LaserSmile dental laser as a treatment for periodontal disease. Previously cleared for just cosmetic and soft-tissue applications, the device can now be used to treat both early and advanced stages of periodontal disease, which the firm claims is a US first for a 810nm solid-state laser.
