A Laser Focus on Precision and Comfort

In our goal to provide high-quality dental care to patients of all ages, we’ve invested in several technological advancements designed to provide greater comfort and precision throughout treatment. That includes the advanced Solea Laser, which is a carbon dioxide-based laser designed to work equally well on both soft and hard oral tissues. The laser replaces the use of more invasive instruments, such as a scalpel or dental drill, while performing a number of different procedures. It can make filling a tooth, treating a root canal, reshaping a gum line or treating gum disease much more comfortable and convenient. In many cases, the use of a laser eliminates the need for sedation due to its minimally invasive nature.

The Benefits of Solea Laser Treatment

  • Greater comfort – Compared to a dental drill or scalpel, the specially calibrated laser offers a significantly higher level of comfort. The laser doesn’t produce the unsettling noise that a drill might, and the more precise nature of the laser minimizes collateral trauma to nearby teeth and/or oral tissues.
  • No need for anesthesia – The greater precision provided by laser treatment helps minimize the potential discomfort of your procedure. In fact, up to 90% of the treatments we perform using the Solea Laser are performed without the need for local anesthesia.
  • Enhanced precision – The Solea Laser’s minimally invasive nature stems from the enhanced precision it provides when sculpting tooth structure or trimming soft oral tissues. The concentrated, specially calibrated laser can sculpt your tooth or reshape your gum tissues with greater precision, and therefore, more satisfactory results.
  • Reduced risks of infection – In addition to making your treatment more comfortable and precise, the use of our Solea Laser helps make the healing process faster and more convenient. The minimally invasive nature of your procedure means there’s a lower risk of infection or the development of an oral health concern following your treatment.
