Solea® is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue procedures.
This system has changed how dentistry is completed today. This particular technology allows teeth to be filled in many cases without any anesthetic and without a dental drill.
Anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry as practitioners are able to execute multi-quadrant dentistry and the patient is able to leave the office and go about their day without being numb.
Because you do not have to wait for the anesthetic to work it can be quicker.
Dr. Stall states “At the time of this writing I have used this laser approximately 1100 times and in less than 30 times I needed to use an anesthetic to allow the patient to be more comfortable. It does have limitations in that it cannot be used to remove old silver fillings or to cut through any type of metal. With each new update to the software, it gets better and better."
