Prioritizing Your Safety With Reduced Aerosolization
Water spray is a significant factor in aerosolization and the spread of harmful viruses, such as the common cold and influenza viruses, herpes viruses, pathogenic streptococci and staphylococci, and others. Most drills utilize one to four water ports that are driven by air pressure of 38 psi and water flow of 30-60 ml/min (Cavalcanti 2005). Solea utilizes air pressure as low as 10 psi and water flow as low as 10 ml/min, which is 74% less air pressure and 67-83% less water flow when compared to drills. Based on these factors, the risk of aerosolization and transmission of viruses including COVID-19 is significantly lower with Solea than the drill. For more info click here.
A CHANGE FOR THE HAPPIER
The miracle we’ve both been waiting for is here: Solea. Now available to you, Solea is a dental laser
that replaces the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. 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. The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you were just at a dental appointment.
The majority of hard and soft tissue procedures in our office are done with virtually no anesthesia and soft tissue procedures are done with virtually no bleeding. Blood-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry, as 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 patients? You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time. When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that numb sensation following your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentisT.
