Convergent Dental’s New Ultraguide Handpiece and 15/400 Hollow Waveguide Enables Solea Users to Operate More Effectively in the Periodontal Pocket

 

Atlanta, GA – Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting – March 26, 2015Convergent Dental Inc., a privately held dental equipment and technology company, today unveiled its new Ultraguide handpiece, along with the 15/400 hollow waveguide and automatic alignment system for Solea, the first FDA approved, CO2 9.3 micron dental laser for hard and soft tissue. The new Ultraguide is a precision-engineered handpiece and the 15/400 hollow waveguide is specifically designed for access to the periodontal pocket and other hard to reach areas in the oral cavity. The 15/400 hollow waveguide gets its name from its dimensions which are a length of 15 millimeters and an inner diameter of 400 microns. The Ultraguide will be delivered with the industry’s first automatic alignment system which will detect the center point of the laser’s 0.25 mm beam and communicate wirelessly with Solea to precisely position it through the exact center of the hollow waveguide’s opening.

 

The 15/400 is the first in a family of hollow waveguides of various lengths and widths to be released over the coming months from Convergent Dental, all of which will be compatible with the new Ultraguide handpiece. Dentists interested in seeing Solea and the new Ultraguide handpiece can stop by booth #1248 during the Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting taking place March 26 – 28, 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

 

“The introduction of the new Ultraguide broadens the scope of Solea’s clinical capabilities delivering more value and increased opportunities for efficiency gains and revenue growth for our customers,” said Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “The Ultraguide, hollow waveguide and the auto-alignment system demonstrates our ongoing commitment to constant innovation to drive increased value for our customers. This is just one of many improvements our customers can expect to receive throughout 2015 and beyond.”

 

The Ultraguide is compatible with all Solea systems in the market today in keeping with the company’s objective to deliver innovations that leverage customers’ initial investment in Solea.
