How the Solea Laser is Changing Dentistry!
Did you know that many overall body diseases can be spotted earlier through dental checkups? A routine dental exam can provide information on the health of your digestive system, heart, and bones. The problem is that some people are intimidated by dentist offices for many reasons varying from the sound of the dental drill to the potential anesthesia in their gums. Unfortunately, that means that these people are less likely to get their oral checkups and when they do, they often need more than just a cleaning.
If you are one of these individuals, you will be really happy to know that technology has advanced enough to put all your worries to bed. We would like to introduce you to the Solea Laser. The Solea Laser is a pain-free laser used in dentistry. It is used as a fast, precise, and anesthesia-free tool for cavity prep and most soft-tissue surgeries. It enables a relaxed experience during your appointment while also facilitating a smoother procedure.
What are Some Benefits of Solea?
There are a few reasons why Solea is becoming more popular amongst our patients here at Alluvial Dental Center. We wanted to share with you some of the feedback that we have gathered so that you can decide if Solea is a good choice for you.
Procedures that include anesthesia, such as cavity fillings, can be overwhelming to many patients. If you have had procedures done in the past that included anesthesia, you might remember that the process can be a lengthy one. The local anesthesia has to be injected in the gums, then the dentist has to wait until the effects kick in, and lastly when the procedure is finished, you have to wait a few hours for the numbness to go away. Thankfully, Solea offers an anesthesia-free alternative for cavity fillings and for other soft-tissue surgeries. It is very soothing for many patients to know that they can have anesthesia-free procedures performed.
Nearly Pain-Free Procedures
This is a favourite amongst patients. Solea provides a nearly pain-free option for dealing with cavities and soft-tissue surgeries! We say “nearly pain-free” because about 50% of people say they experience zero pain with Solea while the other 50% feel only slight sensations of cold or pressure.
We mentioned earlier that quite a few patients are afraid of visiting dental offices because of the drilling noises and fear of needles. Solea offers a drill-free, needle-free, noise-free, blood-free, and suture-free alternative to traditional tools. For many patients, this means that Solea also includes an anxiety-free experience!
It is important for us to let you know that there are options for you here at Alluvial Dental Center.
