Solea Dental Laser Explained
Solea uses advanced technology to power a dental laser that can replace the dental drill in the majority of procedures we offer. Compared to the traditional drill, Solea is virtually noise and vibration free. In fact, nearly all our patients skip anesthesia because they simply don’t need it. Solea is our way of keeping you happy, because you deserve it!
What is Solea?
Solea is the first FDA cleared CO2 dental laser system for use on/in both hard and soft tissue procedures. Developed by Convergent Dental in Boston, Massachusetts, Solea produces a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures. Using research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry, Solea is indicated for use on both teeth and gums, from simple cavities to complex surgeries. Not only is the laser virtually painless, it is also vibrationless and noiseless. The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you were just at a dental appointment.
The majority of hard- and soft-tissue procedures in our office are done with no anesthesia, which we know makes the patient experience that much better. For the patient, this means you are able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time typically needed. Repairing cavities in all four corners of your mouth in one visit, without pain or numbness, is a common practice here. Solea allows us to eliminate the discomfort from anesthesia, as well as the uncomfortable noises and vibrations from the drill, that you are accustomed to. By removing the uncomfortable numb feeling from anesthesia, you can immediately return to work without any hesitation, and children can leave the office without fear of chewing on their numb lip or cheek. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is the use of medical lasers for various dental treatments. Lasers were approved by the FDA for use in the dental field in 1994, so they have already been around for more than 20 years. The American Dental Association is optimistic about the future of lasers in dentistry and looks to see what other uses they may have.
