Solea Laser

Solea® is the number one selling all-tissue laser in dentistry.

It’s fast, precise, reliably anesthesia-free for any cavity prep and blood and suture-free for most soft tissue surgeries. Patients love the unique experience. Dentists love the practice growth, improved outcomes, and new patient referrals.

Dental lasers have revolutionized oral care, transforming traditional procedures into convenient treatments that minimize discomfort and recovery time, while improving the overall health of patients’ smiles.  While initial dental laser technology was used primarily for soft tissue treatments, further innovation in the field of laser dentistry has led to the development of a more versatile instrument – the Solea Laser.

Safe and effective for both and soft tissue, this advanced dental technology has opened the door to a new era of patient care here at Hampden Dental Care.

What is the Solea Laser?

Solea is the first CO2 Laser system approved by the FDA for both hard and soft tissue.  While traditional lasers are limited to soft tissue and cannot target enamel, the Solea laser uses rapid pulses of infrared light that can be safely applied to both hard and soft tissue.  This advanced tool can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, ranging from removing bacteria and infected tissue in periodontal pockets to filling cavities and replacing restorations.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

There are a number of advantages associated with the Solea laser offered by Dr. David Edlund, D.M.D.

Convenience:  Traditional treatments can require multiple appointments in order to completely address a complex dental issue such as periodontal disease treatment or root canal therapy.  By integrating this state-of-the-art instrument into certain procedures, our dentist is able to shorten treatment time, limiting the number of required appointments.

Comfortable:  Since treatment with a dental laser is non-invasive and emits no sound or vibrations, patients are often able to undergo Solea laser dental treatments without sedation or anesthesia.  By eliminating the discomfort typically associated with dental drills as well as the numbness that comes with local anesthesia, Solea is ideal for patients of all ages.

Versatility:   As this tool can be used on both soft and hard oral tissues, Solea presents patients with a convenient, effective alternative for treating diverse dental issues.  At Hampden Dental Care, we utilize Solea for a number of treatments, including soft tissue biopsies, gum contouring, frenectomies, restoration placement, and a number of other procedures.

Healing Time:  When used on soft tissue, this dental laser cauterizes the treatment site, thereby stimulating accelerated recovery while reducing the risk of post-treatment infection and discomfort.  Additionally, the precision and speed of our dental laser ensures that only targeted areas are affected, eliminating the risk of damage to surrounding tissue.
