We use the Solea Carbon Dioxide Laser in a majority of our procedures at The Tooth Fairy. This means we are able to offer top-of-the-line technology and provide the absolute best experiences and results for our patients.
Solea is a carbon dioxide dental laser that replaces the need for anesthesia in many dental treatments. Solea allows for safe removal of cavities as well as a bactericidal effect to prevent recurrent decay and keep the tooth as clean as possible throughout the procedure.
Solea uses laser technology to vaporize the target tissue and allows us to remove cavities or gum tissue quickly and safely.
Yes! Solea uses a wavelength of light delivered in so many pulses per second that it overwhelms pain receptors, preventing pain signals from ever reaching the brain. This results in an analgesic effect that takes away any sensation aside from cold and slight pressure.
Yes! Solea has been FDA cleared for treatment and has been used in 10 million dental procedures and counting.
One big issue we see with kids is that they may bite themselves if they are numb following treatment. When we use Solea, kids are not numb and so this is a non-issue. Also, kids are able to eat immediately after the procedure!
Many patients report feeling nothing. Others feel cold or pressure. Most times, we are able to adjust the power on Solea to a point that feels perfectly comfortable while completing procedures.
There is no additional charge from The Tooth Fairy for using Solea. Insurance coverage is also not altered by using Solea.
When we do not need to numb, we are able to keep patients more relaxed and potentially do more treatment at one visit. This means fewer missed school days for our patients, and happier kids at the end of the appointments!
The next big thing for Solea will be cavity prevention! We hope to have more information about that soon!
