A Change for the Happier

The miracle we’ve all been waiting for is here: Solea, now available to your child at our pediatric dental office. Solea 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 one of our young patients skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it.

Solea is our way of keeping your child happy. Because more than anything, we love to see them smile!

Making Dentistry Safer with Solea

Solea is not only our way of keeping your child happy, but also keeping your child and our staff healthy. Solea helps reduce the risk of viral and bacterial transmission by significantly reducing the amount of splatter and aerosols created during dental procedures. This means there are fewer particles floating in the air that could potentially carry germs and viruses.

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 by Convergent Dental, based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry.

Solea produces a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums, from simple cavity prep to complex gum surgeries. Not only is the laser virtually painless, it is also vibrationless and noiseless. The experience is so unique that your child will find it hard to believe he or she was just at a dental appointment.

Why Solea?

With Solea, the majority of hard- and soft-tissue procedures in our office are done with no anesthesia, and soft-tissue procedures are performed with virtually no bleeding. Blood-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in pediatric dentistry, as 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 your child? Your little one is now able to receive the care he or she requires in a fraction of the time and with far less of the discomfort associated with traditional drills. Solea is also less invasive than using a traditional handpiece, which makes healing time following your child’s procedure much shorter.

When patients have anesthesia, they typically leave the office with that lingering numb feeling. With Solea, your child is able to go right back to school or play without that numb sensation after an appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means for children to go to the dentist.
