If you fear the dentist because you’re afraid of feeling any pain or discomfort during your visit, just know that you are not alone. In fact, many dentists are doing everything they can to make dental visits more comfortable, both for routine treatments and more extensive restorative ones. While some resort to numbing agents to remove pain, others are taking a more technological approach.
That’s where the Solea dental laser comes into play. With this device, the dentist can make your overall visit a far more enjoyable, comfortable and faster experience.
How Does the Solea Dental Laser Work?
The Solea dental laser is a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser designed to cut through both gum and bone tissue with ease. In fact, only 700 other dental practices in the United States alone use this technology, meaning the benefits you can expect are that much more valuable. The laser is also incredibly precise, with its point measuring at 9.3 microns, which for comparison is about 1/8 the width of a human hair. That’s precision you want when you’re getting decay removed or gum tissue adjusted.
The laser utilizes light beams that appear at a specific wavelength, making them ideal for a wide array of dental treatments. The wavelength is crucial for lasers like the Solea laser because it’s why the benefits are so plentiful.
What are the Benefits?
The Solea laser makes it easy to perform treatments without traditional dental or medical tools, including needles, sutures, scalpels or drills. Because of this, you can expect all of your routine dental treatments to be faster, more comfortable and more precise overall. Plus, there’s no need for preparatory treatments, such as numbing agents, to be administered through needles. Most patients do not need numbing agents regardless simply because of how precise the Solea laser really is.
Furthermore, dental lasers make it much easier for your oral structures to heal after treatment. While some gum treatments make take up to two weeks to fully heal from, treatments performed with a dental laser may only take a few days. That’s the Solea difference.
What Services Can Be Performed?
If you’re overdue for a routine cleaning or need substantial tooth decay or plaque removed, you’ll want to do so via Solea. Of course, there are many advanced periodontal treatments people can receive as well, including:
- Preparation of teeth for fillings, crowns, bridges or porcelain veneers
- Reshaping soft tissue, either for cosmetic purposes or in order to show more of your natural enamel prior to your restorative/cosmetic treatment
- Removing supportive bone or gum tissue to prepare your mouth for dental implants
Don’t settle any longer for loud, high-pitched tools that give you anxiety. There’s no need for painful dental treatments when you have a Solea dental laser nearby! Schedule your next appointment today to experience the difference!
