SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.—Lightmed, a global medical technology company, announced the launch of Sapphire, an Erbium: YAG dental laser system designed to equip oral practitioners and their patients with an alternative for safe, comfortable and minimally invasive hard- and soft-tissue dental procedures.

The new dental laser features a portable console and an ergonomic laser-embedded handpiece to fit all types of clinical settings, along with an intuitive graphical user interface to help dentists achieve their treatment goals. The Sapphire utilizes its Erbium: YAG laser technology to deliver effective clinical treatments with minimal collateral tissue or bone damage.

“My dream has always been to build ‘super lasers’ that improve people’s lives. With the launch of Sapphire, we’ve taken a big step forward in the medical industry and towards my dream,” said Gary Lee, CEO of Lightmed. “Lightmed now serves the ophthalmic and dental segments, and soon we will be fully launched into the dermatology market as well. No matter which medical market we’re serving, Lightmed strives to develop the safest, most effective and best value laser solutions to enhance people’s quality of life.” 

The Sapphire treats a variety of oral conditions and is used for periodontal treatment, restorative dentistry, endodontics, pedodontics, implant dentistry and aesthetics. Each laser system is equipped with a laser-embedded applicator, two angled and fully rotatable laser handpieces, a set of 10 treatment tips, a wireless foot switch, 20 built-in treatment protocols, and an intuitive and adjustable 8” resistive color touchscreen for ease of use with surgical gloves.
