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.
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, soft and osseous tissue procedures.
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.
Solea’s technology offers patients a reliably anesthesia-free alternative to the traditional drill for hard and soft tissue procedures.
Its unique 9.3 µm wavelength provides a natural anesthetic effect while also affording dentists the ability to cut dental enamel with unprecedented speed and precision.
Patients experience virtually painless procedures that take a fraction of the time of a traditional dental appointment because practitioners do not need to inject anesthetic or control bleeding.
Solea delivers a completely different experience than the traditional drill.
No more needles. No more jarring noises. No more soreness.

SOLEA® LASER FAQS
WHAT EXACTLY IS SOLEA?
Solea is an isotopic CO2 laser that operates at a unique wavelength—9.3 microns—to deliver fast results whether used on gingiva, dentin, enamel, or bone. It produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy that, when it comes in contact with tissue, is able to remove or reshape that tissue.
WHAT CAN SOLEA BE USED FOR?
With Solea, we can easily prepare a tooth when filling a cavity so you can be in, out, and on with an even healthier day. Solea can be used on hard (enamel and dentin), soft (gums), and osseous (bone) tissue.
DOES SOLEA HURT?
Our Solea dental laser lets us deliver virtually anesthesia-free, blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free procedures for both teeth and gums, from simple filling prep to complex surgeries.
DO I NEED ANESTHESIA WITH SOLEA?
With our dental laser, Solea, 95% of routine procedures are done without anesthesia. This means less anxiety, less discomfort, and no more “fat lip.”
CAN SOLEA BE USED ON CHILDREN?
Yes! Solea can be used on children and infants. Treatments like frenectomy procedures, which can be invasive and usually require general anesthesia, can be done quickly, comfortably, and without anesthesia thanks to Solea.
ARE THERE RISKS WITH USING SOLEA?
Solea is FDA-cleared as a CO2 9.3 micron dental laser—the first of its kind on the market. There are actually fewer risks in using a dental laser like Solea in comparison to traditional dental treatments. There is less potential chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are so precise, and there is often far less bleeding during surgical procedures.
