What is The Solea Laser?
The Solea dental laser uses a highly concentrated beam of light to replace a number of traditional dental instruments. For example, its ability to remove decay from inside a tooth often eliminates the need for a drill. When it is used on soft tissue, it can virtually eliminate bleeding and the need for sutures because it cauterizes the tissues as it moves.
There are a number of different dental lasers on the market today. However, the Solea device is the best-selling due to its impressive suite of features and the robust support that its manufacturer offers to dentists.
Most dentists automatically numb their patients prior to placing a filling. This step ensures that the patients feel little to nothing while the dentist is removing decayed tissue from inside a tooth. After administering the numbing agent, the dentist must wait for it to take effect. This slows down the treatment process and poses a significant inconvenience to patients. The Solea laser painlessly removes decayed tissue, eliminating the need for anesthesia and significantly reducing the amount of time you must spend in the dental office.
The laser also makes it possible for you to get more treatment completed in a single appointment. That is because with anesthesia, a dentist can usually only work in a small portion of the mouth at a time. Without anesthesia, it is often possible to take care of all of a patient’s needs at once.
Gum Disease Treatment
Using our Solea dental laser, we can tackle the harmful oral bacteria that linger in your mouth and cause worsening gum disease symptoms. The highly concentrated beam of light can kill pockets of bacteria on-the-spot as well as seamlessly remove severely damaged gum tissue, only leaving healthy tissue behind. The best part is, using a laser instead of a scalpel and sutures to do this minimizes bleeding, shortens recovery time, and reduces your risk of developing an infection after treatment.
Millions of people struggle with some degree of dental anxiety. If that is true of you, you may be surprised by how the Solea laser can help. Imagine a dental appointment with no drill sounds, no needles, no bleeding, and no sutures. That is what the Solea laser, along with Dr. Nguyen’s skill hand, can provide you. Moreover, because the laser is so precise, you can have confidence that your treatment’s final outcome will be optimal.
