The Pioneer Pro Diode Laser is a high performance soft tissue laser that combines 810nm laser wavelength with excellent design, innovative and user friendly features and consistency and safety for clinicians and patients.
The Pioneer Pro Diode Laser has several unique features all of them providing operators efficiency, convenience and performance. Features laser wavelength of 810±20nm that has the highest affinity hemoglobin and melanin making the laser a precise, least invasive and least traumatic tool, to perform soft tissue procedures. Supported by Pioneer Lasers, LLC a world leading innovator of high technology diode laser systems.
Unique Fiber Management System
Eliminate tangles and expensive mishaps created by conventional laser fiber management. No more winding fiber around the unit or exposure to wayward movements or rolling chairs, the Pioneer Pro Diode Laser features a patented retractable fiber management system which allows you to extend or retract the fiber as needed. The fiber cartridge which contains 6 meters (21 feet). Fiber is disposable and easily replaced ensuring little down time! Fiber disinfection can be completed and the hand piece sterilized.
The Pioneer Pro Diode Laser’s LED display clearly displays all of the features offered.
Wireless Power Foot-Control
The Pioneer Pro Diode Laser offers a wireless power foot control pedal to provide flexibility in an already limited operatory space. Has a safety flap which prevents unwanted activation as well as serves as a handle for easy portability. The wide range of activation provides free movement within the operatory. Security coded to a specific frequency to the Pioneer Pro Diode Laser – interference is eliminated from other operations or wireless devices. Powered by a 9V Lithium high performance battery for an average of 100 hours of continuous operation.
Small Foot Print
The Pioneer Pro Diode Laser is still one of the industry’s most compact with a footprint of less than an 8.5" x 11” letter size sheet. Weighs 5 pounds and is easy to carry between operatories. The Pioneer Pro is the best looking high tech piece of equipment that will not intimidate your patients and yet look highly sophisticated.
Simple Touch Panel
Six simple and intuitive buttons allow practitioners to easily adjust to each procedure and patient.
The Pioneer vaporizes and modifies soft tissue without bleeding and usually without injected anesthetics.
Use the Pioneer Diode Laser to prepare gingival tissues in three dimensions for fixed Prosthodontic impressions and to control tissue adjacent to restorative preparations.
When used in contact, diode laser energy only penetrates about 200 microns, making it safe as well as effective. Surface tissues are vaporized in a controlled manner, and the underlying connective tissue is coagulated and the resulting laser wound is self-sealing, requiring no suturing.
Yes we implemented a free of charge loaner program for Pioneer lasers that need to be sent to our equipment service facility. This program is in effect for both the Pioneer Elite and Pioneer Pro lasers that are still under warranty. Contact Pioneer Customer Service for more information at (877) 236-4402.
The Pioneer Pro and the Pioneer Elite are under warranty for two years including costs for labor, parts, loaner and shipping. The warranty for the Pioneer Elite exchangeable battery is one year.
The term laser stands for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation", which means a device that produces and amplifies light. The wavelength of the light produced will determine what types of tissues can be modified by the light’s energy. Light waves that emanate from within the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum will be readily absorbed into body pigments like melanin in the skin, and heme found within hemoglobin in blood. They will have virtually no affinity for water and thus, it won’t be absorbed at the surface as it enters soft tissues. Wave lengths located within the mid to far infrared range are attracted to water and the hydroxyapatite crystals that are found within bone and teeth. Thus, these wave lengths are primarily used in hard tissue lasers. With a frequency of 810+/-20 nanometers, the Pioneer Diode Laser’s wave length falls into the lower end of the near-infrared spectrum, making it suitable for soft-tissue applications.
1. Scalpel and sutures generally cause more hemorrhage and less vision during surgery and are more susceptible to post-op swelling and infection than laser surgeries.
2. Electro-surgery units are less precise and may cause more tissue damage. Additionally, they provide less access to difficult areas adjacent to vital tooth structures, amalgams, and implants. Longer healing periods are typically required and patients require to be “grounded” during the procedure.
Today's bonding techniques require total control over the operative sites; the diode laser ensures the ability to achieve that. No other instrument ever available to the dentist has had the capability of such precise tissue sculpting. The diode laser is the least traumatic of all competing and conventional instruments. The Pioneer Diode Laser is affordable and small enough for every practice, simple to operate and easily learned and incorporated into your practice.
Lasers are the most precise, least traumatic, and will heal with less post-operative pain than any other technique.
When the Pioneer Diode Laser is used, it saves chair time. It makes current procedures more effective and procedures beyond my conventional training simplified because of the complete hemostasis and lack of suturing required. Adding the laser to my current soft tissue procedures and just one frenectomy or fibroma each month will generate more income than the payment for the laser.
Some states require dental practices to implement a laser safety program to assure a safe environment for both workers and patients. It is best to have written procedures in this regard. Pioneer Lasers, LLC recommends adoption of a Laser Safety Program and appointment of a Laser Safety Office.
The Pioneer Elite features technology that provides more convenience, easier operation, more flexibility and unmatched portability.
As each clinical situation is unique, the appropriate power setting is primarily determined by the type of lesion, the vascularity of the soft tissue, for example, a more fibrotic tissue requires higher power; or the selected mode of operation, continuous or pulse. The speed of cutting desired by the operator will also determine the power intensity selected, it is always best to use the lowest power setting that will effectively modify the tissue while avoiding tissue charring.
