Styla MicroLaser: A Breakthrough in Soft-Tissue Management?

styla2-s.jpgAny thoughts on the Styla MicroLaser from Zap Lasers? The Styla is being called a breakthrough in soft-tissue management.

The 1.9 ounce Styla combines revolutionary design and proven diode laser technology in a self-contained unit measuring only 6.9 inches long. The handheld Styla has no wires or cables.

According to Zap Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Alex Di Sessa.

“Introducing Styla, Zap continues to break barriers, eliminating the cord and delivering a powerful soft-tissue laser with the freedom to move wherever the doctor does, even between practices, making sure patients in every operatory and office receive the highest standard of care possible.”

Some of the benefits of the Styla include:

Pre-threaded Disposable Tips: Styla’s pre-threaded disposable tips save time by eliminating the need for scoring and stripping, and are ready to use straight from the box. Precisely placed magnets perfectly align and secure the tip for an exact fiber connection every time.

Intelligent Gravity Sensor: Styla’s intelligent built-in gravity sensor automatically detects the microlaser’s orientation and adjusts Styla’s high-contrast display to be read whether operated by a left- or right-handed practitioner.

Wireless Foot Pedal: Styla’s wireless foot pedal uses advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology to securely communicate with Styla’s main body.

  1. Nice new “gadget”, but this is asolutely no “breakthrough” in “soft tissue management” or periodontal disease treatment. There is nothing that this smaller “laser” device does that other hot glass diodes don’t already do–which is to heat the glass with the diode and melt the tissue with the glass heated to 800 degrees Centigrade. The primary tissue nteraction is not even a laser tissue interaction–it is thermal heat conduction, not wavelength dependent optical interactions with target tissue.

    Small and hand held might be a breakthough in engineering or product design, but not in the manner or method that periodontitis would be treated.

    Defined protocols are what matter, not new designs of existing technology.

  2. What is happening with the 3i Nano implant? straight wall and taper. Any c omments? Failures? Any positive outcomes

  3. Have used the Styla Mirolaser for about 8 months. Advantages is the small form factor and ease of use. Diode laser lases precisely around preps to get a clean margin on impressions, allows to perform gingivectomies where margins are difficult to access/observe. True: an electrosurgical unit can acoomplish the same but with more tissue interaction. It claims to be able to lase periopockets to remove bacterica and inflammatory edamatous tissue and allow for better healing. Cost: $9000 with disposable sheaths running $5/pt. Comes with two lithium ion rechargable batteries and a charging stand.
