What is Solea® Laser Dentistry?
We are happy to share our enthusiasm for Solea® Laser Dentistry with our patients. The experience patients have had with this CO2 dental laser has been overwhelmingly positive, thanks to pain-free dentistry that delivers precise results. It’s amazing how laser dentistry has enhanced the way patients view their visits to the dentist, since drills and needles are not exactly a walk in the park. But with FDA-approved Solea®, procedures are more pleasurable, patients are calmer, and appointments are effectively more productive.
Nearly all dental procedures involving tissue can make use of Solea®. These include:
- Frenal attachments
- Routine cavity fillings and removal of old fillings
- Placement of crowns
- Treatment for ulcers
- Deep cleaning to ward off and repair gum disease
- Removing discolorations and veins on lips
- Oral surgery involving the gums and/or bone
- Reduction of gingivitis (puffy gums) while in orthodontic treatment
Why is Solea® Preferred Over More Traditional Methods?
First and foremost, there are no drills or needles, which also means no stitches. All that unsettling noise and vibration is a non-issue with Solea®. Not to mention, since Solea® is a laser, there’s no numbness – the area being worked on doesn’t need to be treated with anesthesia pre-procedure. As a result, more can be accomplished in one appointment and therefore fewer appointments are required. Procedures utilizing the Solea® Laser are nearly pain-free and post-operative discomfort is almost non-existent.
How Does Solea® Work?
The laser vaporizes targeted tissue using a wavelength of light that delivers thousands of pulses per second. There is zero contact with the teeth, gums, or bones. This creates an analgesic effect so patients barely feel a thing.
Will I Pay More for Solea®?
You won’t pay any more for Solea® procedures and insurance coverage is the same as well.
