Q. Is Solea good for kids?
A. It’s great for kids. It’s faster, and most procedures are done without a shot, the drill or pain. Because there is no need for a shot, multiple procedures can be done in one appointment, meaning less time at the dentist. A child can go right back to school or eat right after their appointment because they don’t leave with a numb feeling.
Q. I’m pregnant. Is it OK to use Solea on me?
A. Yes, it’s actually better since there is no need to inject a pregnant patient with anesthetics for the majority of procedures.
