A dental procedure minus the noise and vibration? Thanks to our Solea laser, it’s possible.
The Solea laser takes the place of traditional dental drills. It is nearly free of noise and vibration, and most patients don’t even feel the need for anesthesia.
What is the Solea laser?
It’s the first FDA-approved, CO2 laser to be used on both teeth and gums and for an array of procedures. It functions by using a wavelength and computer system that produces little noise or vibration. The laser, when in contact with tissue, can remove or reshape tissue.
Many patients prefer the laser because it does not require anesthesia. This means patients don’t leave an appointment with pain or numbness, making the rest of the day’s commitments a breeze. Solea is basically anesthesia-free, blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free.
What is Solea used for?
The laser can be used for a large variety of procedures, including common ones such as gum reshaping, gum disease and dental fillings. It is safe for use on hard (enamel and dentin), soft (gums), and osseous (bone) tissue.
Do patients need anesthesia with Solea?
Most procedures (95%) are done without anesthesia, meaning an overall better experience and less discomfort after your appointment. Most patients report feeling nothing during the procedure, while others report a slight cold sensation.
Can Solea be used on children?
Yes it can be used on both children and infants! It can even be used to treat tongue and lip ties.
What are the risks of Solea?
Solea is actually safer than traditional dental procedures. Because laser treatment is so precise, there is less chance for bacterial infection and less bleeding.
Will my insurance cover Solea?
Just like traditional dental drill work, insurance companies will often cover the cost of Solea without additional cost. However, to find out what your specific plan covers, you will need to contact them directly.
What procedures is Solea used for?
Some common procedures include cavities, gingivectomies, frenectomies, aphthous ulcers, fibroma removals and crown lengthenings. Solea does not replace traditional dental cleanings.
Can Solea be used while pregnant?
Yes, it’s actually a better choice than traditional dental drills due to not needing anesthesia!
