Solea Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is Solea laser dentistry?

Solea is a CO2 laser system designed to make your experience at the dentist better. It’s the first FDA-cleared device of its kind, and it delivers a specialized wavelength of light energy to treat hard and soft tissues in the mouth.

The Solea laser is controlled by high-tech computers to ensure accuracy of treatment. The result is less time spent in the dentist’s chair, essentially painless procedures, and faster recovery times.

Laser dentistry is a revolution in the dental world. It’s not a replacement for your routine dental cleanings, but instead, it’s a service to treat decay and other issues to improve your oral health.

What are the benefits of Solea laser dentistry?

Solea is fast and precise. Laser dentistry gives Dr. Goodman the power to perform a range of dental procedures in a single appointment, and patients love the unique and pain-free experience made possible by laser dentistry.

There’s less pain with Solea than traditional dental procedures that require needles and drills. The laser targets the treatment area, vaporizing damaged tissue while leaving healthy tissues intact. Most patients report no pain at all, while others only notice a mild sensation of cold.

Treatment with Solea is quick. There’s no anxiety about anesthesia injections and no waiting for your mouth to get numb. You’ll take a seat in the chair and Dr. Goodman can begin working right away. There’s generally little to no downtime following Solea treatment, and you won’t leave the office waiting for the anesthesia to wear off.

What procedures is Solea used for?

Solea is FDA-cleared for soft and hard tissue treatments. That means treatments involving gums, teeth, and bone can all be performed with Solea, from filling cavities to more advanced surgical procedures.

Dr. Goodman may integrate laser dentistry into your routine cleaning appointment if a cavity is found, using Solea to prepare a tooth for a filling. Other treatments possible with Solea include:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gingivectomy
  • Frenectomy
  • Tissue recontouring
  • Fibroma removal

Traditionally, these procedures require anesthesia, drilling, scalpels, and sutures. But Solea technology significantly reduces or even eliminates the need for these outdated methods.

You have options for your dental care. With Solea laser dentistry, you don’t have to worry about your next dental procedure. Call the office and speak with a friendly team member or book an appointment online to learn more today.
