SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 1 -- Biolase Technology Inc. has obtained clearances from the US Food and Drug Administration to market the company's new lightweight diode lasers, TwiLite and HyLite, for use in dental cosmetic and soft tissue procedures.

According to Jeffrey W. Jones, president and CEO of Biolase, cosmetic and painless procedures represent the fastest-growing and most profitable segment of the dental market.
