Solea® Dental LaserNashville, TN
A Change for the Happier
The miracle we’ve both been waiting for is here: Solea. Now available to you, 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 patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. Solea is our way of keeping you happy. Because more than anything, we love to see you smile.
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, Massachusetts by Convergent Dental, based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry.
Solea offers a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums, from simple cavities to complex surgeries. Not only is the laser virtually painless, it is also vibrationless and noiseless. The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you have been at a dental appointment.
The majority of hard- and soft-tissue procedures in our office are done with no anesthesia, and soft-tissue procedures occur with virtually no bleeding. Blood-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry: 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 you, our patient? You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time—and pain—you were accustomed to with traditional drills. Solea is also far less invasive than a traditional handpiece, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter.
When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office still feeling that numb sensation. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that numbness that follows your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
