Laser Technology for Dental Applications

Aorta applies laser techniques to many of its appliances. We implement laser welding techniques to produce a higher quality finish. Traditional soldering techniques are disappearing from dental labs everywhere - basically traditional soldering is a thing of the past.

The benefits of implementing laser technology are numerous . Some of the top reasons we use laser in production at Aorta include:

  • Totally biocompatible
  • Makes it easy to adjust appliances
  • Provides an esthetic and natural feel to appliances
  • Easy to handle, so it saves time
  • Gives a great value for your money
  • Corrosion resistant welding technology without solder
  • High mechanical strength
  • Homogenous welded structure
  • Smaller heat affected area, therefore less warping occurs
  • Ability to work closer to ceramic, plastic and composites
  • Suitable for all dental alloys and titanium
  • Titanium can be laser welded in an argon gas environment providing a bio-compatible and corrosion free appliance

Laser Biocompatibility

Using laser technology has various advantages in terms of the biocompatibility of the resulting product:

  • 100 % hypoallergenic
  • No additional metals or alloys are added to the weld
  • The weld remains neutrally charged - no static
  • Does not tarnish or oxidize
  • Non-reactive, and the weld does not deteriorate in saliva

EMA1.jpgTechnological Advance: EMA Snore Appliance

The EMA appliance is a simple, patient-friendly oral appliance created for non-invasive treatment of snoring and OSA. The primary treatment mechanism of opening the bite and gently moving the mandible forward is achieved with the use of interchangeable elastic straps that offer varying degrees of mandibular movement. The flexibility of these elastic straps provides unsurpassed lateral movement and overall TMJ comfort. The 2mm thick pressure-formed bases offer orthodontic retention (resulting in no tooth movement) and maximum anterior tongue space because there are no projections in the palate.
