Change for the Happier
We are proud to bring laser dentistry to Parkside. The Solea laser 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 the injection, the most dreaded part of getting fillings because they just don’t need it.
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. Not only is the laser virtually painless, it is also vibrationless and noiseless. The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you have been 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 our patients? Our patients are now able to receive the care they need in a fraction of the time—and pain—you were accustomed to with traditional dentistry. Solea is also far less invasive than a traditional handpiece, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter. When patients have to get numb for dental work they leave the office still feeling that numb sensation. This sensation can be aggravating and stressful for children, and many accidentally bite their lip or tongue. With Solea, our patients are able to leave with no numbness and get right back to school or activities after the appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
