The Large Dental Body and Growing Demand for Dental Services Augurs Well for Lantis' Early Detection

The Large Dental Body and Growing Demand for Dental Services Augurs Well for Lantis' Early Detection OCT Dental Imaging System(T


DENVILLE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/28/07 -- Lantis Laser Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LLSR) www.lantislaser.com />
The dental market is large and growing. Dental revenues in the US are approximately $80 billion growing annually at 7-9%. The number of dentists per 1000 population is decreasing as older dentists retire and dental schools are not increasing the number of graduates. Younger dentists are technologically adept, increasing the acceptance of advanced digital modalities. In the US, there are approximately 140,000 dentists practicing in 100,000 dental offices and clinics with an estimated 380,000 treatment rooms.

The demand for dental services is increasing as the population ages and the awareness for good oral hygiene increases. Numerous studies point to the link between oral infections and heart disease, stroke and problems with diabetes, increasing the awareness for better oral care and visits to the dentist.

One of the major challenges facing dentistry today is the continuing prevalence of oral diseases and the need for early detection of oral diseases such as decay, periodontal disease and root caries. Lantis' OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) Dental Imaging System™, because of its high resolution, can provide the early and accurate means for detecting these problems so that non or minimally invasive treatment can be employed. Routine early detection scanning will provide a higher standard of patient care.

OCT technology is ideal for use in dentistry as the handpiece scanner is used in the mouth, emitting no harmful radiation, as the OCT System is light-based. It is compact, easy to use and provides an actual image of the subject that can easily be read chairside.

Lantis, under its exclusive rights from its Licensors, is currently in Phase 2 development and expects this ground-breaking technology to play a major part in the dental office of the future.
