X-Runner-world's first all tissue ablative laser scanning handpiece for dentistry

Oct. 16, 2013

Designed For Use with the Lightwalker AT, Combo Erbium & Nd:YAG Dental Laser System

Lasers4Dentistry, a division of Technology4Medicine, will launch the revolutionary X-Runner™ digital laser scanning handpiece at the upcoming meeting of the American Dental Association being held in New Orleans, LA from Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, 2013, Booth #618. The X-Runner™ was designed specifically for the award-winning LightWalker AT Dual Wavelength dental laser. X-Runner™ is the first ablative ALL Tissue laser scanning handpiece in the dental industry. The X-Runner™ has automated all tissue ablation capabilities and lets the user instantly adjust spot size and shape of the cutting area. 3Shape's dental system offers CAD design for Straumann customized abutments

X-Runner™ is the perfect tool to use whenever precise, deep or wide cuts need to be made in hard or soft dental tissues. The shape and size of an ablation area can be selected in advance to optimize the cutting process, enabling dentists to work more precisely, faster, with enhanced patient comfort, and with greater ease than ever before. The new X-Runner™ is ideal for a wide range of treatments, from standard cavity and veneer preps to high-precision surgical and implantology procedures.

All parameters and settings that are available with the Lightwalker AT's standard laser handpieces (energy, frequency, mode, spray) can also be used with X-Runner™. Dentists can instantly switch between the new automated modality and the classic handpiece modality without the need to swap handpieces. X-Runner™ offers a variety of treatment shapes (circular, rectangular/linear and hexagonal, etc) that can be set according to a number of parameters, such as the size of the ablation area (width & length, or diameter in the case of the circle and hexagon) as well as the number of laser passes needed to produce the desired ablation depth. X-Runner™ can also produce a precise linear cut, for instance, to cut the root apex or to perform an incision in soft-tissue surgery. You can watch the X-Runner™ in action at www.t4med.com.
