“ALL DIODE LASERS ARE NOT THE SAME”Laser Physicist Dr. George Bekov (PhD)


Spectralase Spectralase VIII 980 diode laser is the highest quality diode laser in dentistry. Manufactured in San Francisco by Spectrum Lasers Inc since 1998 by renowned laser physicist Dr. George Bekov(PhD) with over 30 years experience manufacturing medical and excimer LASIK surgery lasers. Only superior quality components are used with attention to every detail including a premium quality focused beam laser module with a lifetime of 5000 hrs, safety tested to medical standards, and laser energy calibrated to +/-2% accuracy. Every laser fiber is tested for accuracy and is the highest quality fiber. Spectralase VIII 980 diode laser is Spectrum’s 8th generation soft tissue laser.


Spectralase lasers have been upgraded to 980nm from 810nm. Spectralase lasers are entirely based on scientific knowledge and not marketing gimmicks. Studies prove 980 nm light is absorbed 30 times more efficiently into the water at the tissue surface with a depth penetration 5 times less than with 810 nm. Greater surface absorption results in more efficient incisions with minimal tissue charring. Less thermal penetration causes less damage to the underlying tissue insuring patient comfort and superior healing.


Years of medical community research influenced us to create a pulse mode using pulses with a duration of 10 millionths of a second. Spectralase automatically adjusts the pulse interval depending on the wattage setting. The higher the wattage, the longer the interval, allowing time for the tissue cooling. The self-adjusting pulse will deliver an average power that insures patient comfort and prevents tissue charring. Research has led us to conclude this combination of variable pulse width and pulse interval is optimal for laser performance and tissue health. Studies prove that short pulses carrying higher power (3 watts) result in an optimal bactericidal effect.


Over 2000 GPs and 1200 orthodontists are satisfied Spectralase owners. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Spectralase is NOT a Super Economy reverse engineered copy built by cutting corners. We firmly believe Spectralase Diode Laser is the highest quality soft tissue laser in dentistry. Our laser training method has been successful since 1998.

    “I have been using my Spectralase diode laser since 2007 and love it. The product quality and personal touch laser training was outstanding. Initially, I was nervous about using a laser in combination with my orthodontics but now I couldn’t practice without it. A laser is a wonderful adjunct to treatment and I would definitely recommend Spectralase Diode Laser.”

    “We are thrilled with our Spectrum Diode Laser. We bought our first in 2005 and we use it almost every day, because it makes us more efficient. We liked it so much we now have 3 for our satellite offices.”
