What exactly is Solea?
Solea is an isotopic CO2 laser that operates at a unique wavelength — 9.3 microns — to deliver fast results, whether used on gingiva, dentin, enamel, or bone. It produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy that, when it comes in contact with tissue, is able to remove or reshape that tissue.
What can Solea be used for?
With Solea, we can take care of cleanings, fill cavities, and prep for crowns, so you can be in, out, and on with an even healthier day. Solea can be used on hard (enamel and dentin), soft (gums), and osseous (bone) tissue.
Does Solea hurt?
Our Solea dental laser lets us deliver virtually anesthesia-free, blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free procedures for both teeth and gums, from simple cavities to complex surgeries.
Do I need anesthesia with Solea?
With our dental laser by Solea, 95% of routine procedures are done without anesthesia. This means less anxiety, less discomfort, and no more “fat lip.”
Can Solea be used on children?
Yes! Solea can be used on children and infants. Treatments such as frenectomy procedures, which can be invasive and usually require general anesthesia, can be done quickly, comfortably, and without anesthesia thanks to Solea.
Are there risks with using Solea?
Solea is FDA-cleared as a CO2 9.3 micron dental laser—the first of its kind on the market. There are actually fewer risks in using a dental laser like Solea in comparison to tradition dental treatments. There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise, and there is often far less bleeding during surgical procedures.
