Most children are great candidates for this anxiety-free dental therapy. Ask the doctor if it’s a good fit for you.
Stress-free dental visits are here
Don’t put off coming to the dentist because of anxiety over ‘the needle’ or the sound of a drill. We have Solea, an advanced new dental laser technology that is virtually replacing the needle, drill, and scalpel in the dental office. Solea can accommodate patients of all ages and procedures of all kinds — without the need for anesthetic in most cases.
Virtually free of the needle and the sound of the drill
With Solea, there’s no need to feel anxious anymore. The dental laser is quiet, reliably free of the needle, drill, blood, and pain — and for the majority of procedures you won’t have to worry about waiting for anesthetic to set in.
Quick, easy, and done in a single visit
Because of how fast Solea works, most procedures can be completed in just minutes and there is usually no need for a second appointment. This takes away the frustration of having to sit in the chair for hours, and allows you to have more time to enjoy your day.
Able to get you back to your day in minutes
As a result of reliably anesthesia-free and blood-free procedures, you will be able to leave the office — without that uncomfortable, numb sensation — almost immediately after your dentist completes the procedure.
Questions & Answers
Q. Is Solea accepted by Insurance?
A. Insurance covers the cost of Solea just like drill work. There are no additional out of pocket costs for Solea procedures. To know if a specific insurance is covered please ask at the front desk.
Q. Is Solea pain-free?
A. The vast majority of patients report not feeling anything during the procedure, while others report a mild sensation of cold.
Q. What dental procedures is Solea used on?
A. Solea is cleared to cut enamel (teeth), soft tissue (gum), and bone. Some procedure examples include cavities, gingivectomies, frenectomies, aphthous ulcers, fibroma removals, crown lengthenings, and more.
Q. Is Solea used for cleanings?
A. Solea is not a replacement for your hygiene check-ups.
Q. How does Solea work?
A. Solea uses computer-controlled laser technology to smoothly, quickly, and safely vaporize the hard (teeth) and soft (gums) tissues in your mouth.
Q. Does Solea work with silver (amalgam) fillings?
A. In most cases, Solea allows the dentist to remove amalgam, minimizing the loss of tooth structure.
Q. Is Solea good for kids?
A. YES — 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 because there’s no need to inject a pregnant patient with anesthetics for the majority of procedures.
