Laser Dentistry with Solea
No Needle Dentistry!
A solution that doesn’t hurt. A way to go right back to your daily routine after your appointment without the lingering numbness. Solea is a powerful dental laser which replaces the drill, no vibration, no noise and virtually pain free. Solea is ideal for apprehensive patients and children looking to avoid the dreaded dental needle.
Solea Laser Dentistry is an Anesthesia Free Alternative to Traditional High-Speed Drill-Based Dentistry. Using absolutely no needles and anesthesia, Solea gives patients a unique journey of solving their dental problems in just one visit. The hi-tech system is engineered to provide a sound-free and relaxed environment for both the patient and the doctor while doing the procedure.
Patients are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time with no pain and no downtime. Solea is also far less invasive than a traditional handpiece, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter.
When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office still feeling that numb sensation. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that numbness that follows your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
Is Solea pain-free?
The vast majority of patients report not feeling anything during the procedure, while others report a mild sensation of cold.
What dental procedures is Solea used on?
Solea is cleared to cut enamel (teeth), soft tissue (gum), and bone. Some procedure examples include: cavities, gingivectomies, frenectomies, aphthous ulcers, fibroma removals, crown lengthenings, and more.
Is Solea used for cleanings?
Solea is not a replacement for one’s hygiene check-ups.
How does Solea work?
Solea uses computer-controlled laser technology to smoothly, quickly, and safely vaporize the hard (teeth) and soft (gums) tissues in one’s mouth. For more information, click here.
Does Solea work with silver (amalgam) fillings?
In most cases, Solea allows the dentist to remove amalgam minimizing the loss of tooth structure.
Is Solea good for kids?
It’s great for kids. It’s faster, and most procedures are done without a shot, the drill or pain. Because there is no need for a shot, multiple procedures can be done in one appointment, meaning less time at the dentist. A child can go right back to school or eat right after their appointment because they don’t leave with a numb feeling.
I’m pregnant. Is it OK to use Solea on me?
Yes, it’s actually better since there is no need to inject a pregnant patient with anesthetics for the majority of procedures.
