No Drill, No Needles, No Numbness!
Now available to you, Solea is a powerful dental laser that replaces the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. It causes virtually no pain, vibration, or noise. In fact, nearly every patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. Solea is our way of keeping your child happy. Because more than anything, we love to see them smile.
What is Solea?
Solea is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue procedures. It was developed in Boston, Massachusetts by Convergent Dental, based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry. Solea offers a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums from simple cavities to complex surgeries. The experience is so unique that your child will find it hard to believe they were just at a dental appointment.
The majority of hard- and soft-tissue procedures in our office are done with no anesthesia, and soft-tissue procedures occur with virtually no bleeding. Blood-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry: We are able to execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fillings on the fly, and soft-tissue procedures in a single appointment.
What does that mean for your child, our patient? They are now able to receive the care they need in a fraction of the time—and pain—you were accustomed to with traditional drills. 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 school without that numbness that follows your child’s appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
