Lasers, Carbon Dioxide, Dental
Definition : Carbon dioxide gas lasers designed for use in dental procedures. These lasers typically emit energy at wavelength of 10,600 nm (far infrared); the laser energy is usually delivered to the tissue through a handpiece. Dental carbon dioxide lasers may be operated in continuous-wave or pulsed modes; they are used mainly to excise or vaporize soft tissue in the oral cavity.
