The Odyssey® Diode Lasers from Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. represent the latest diode laser technology available for soft tissue modification and preventive care. Featuring unique fiber management systems and the newest innovations; a wireless power control, the Odyssey Diode Lasers are the most efficient, portable, and affordable soft tissue laser in dentistry today. Powering the design of the Odyssey Diode Laser is a passion for better dentistry made possible through the use of the most sophisticated, precise and minimally invasive technology available. The Odyssey Diode Lasers now enable you to easily and safely perform many soft tissue procedures that were previously referred out of your practice, now allowing you to keep control of your patients and increase revenue. Many doctors fear the potential of patient post-operative complications and patient discomfort associated with scalpel incisions or electrosurge. The Odyssey Diode Lasers cut and coagulate at the same time, thereby facilitating immediate hemostasis, less tissue charring, less postoperative healing time and fewer post-operative complications including less chance of infection. The laser performs minor surgical procedures and in addition, reduces bacteria from the area at the same time. Sutures are rarely needed for laser wounds and many soft tissue procedures around the gingiva can be completed without anesthesia for greater patient acceptance and comfort.
