Solea Dental Laser System

A true breakthrough has been made in the field of dentistry: dental lasers replacing the dental drill. Solea® is the first CO2 dental laser that is approved by the FDA for safety and effectiveness. Welcome to the newest development that redefines “pain-free dentistry.”

After years of development, Convergent Dental has invented this solution to avoid painful novocaine shots for dental work. Many patients don’t need anesthesia when having a procedure done with Solea.

No longer do most patients need sedation dentistry when this technology is used. Solea removes the need for painful anesthesia shots and drilling and replaces them with a painless, computer-guided laser that can be used in nearly every dental procedure.

Happy Dental Patients

Solea is the miracle that everyone has been waiting for. In virtually every procedure done in a dental office, Solea can replace the noise of drilling and the uncomfortable sensations. This system removes the need for anesthesia because it is no longer necessary – the patient remains comfortable.

Solea is a dentist’s way of keeping patients happy because, more than anything, dentists want to see their patients smile. Patients who have experienced the benefits of the Solea system rave about the results, and many say that afterward it feels like they never went to the dentist.

How the Dental Laser Works

Developed in Boston, the Solea CO2 laser is based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry. Solea uses a wavelength that is capable of vaporizing a tooth’s enamel painlessly, allowing dentists to skip the anesthesia – making for shorter, painless visits that will leave patients smiling.

The Solea system can be used for everything from simple cavities to complex surgical procedures. The Solea system’s results surpass all expectations of speed, simplicity, and computer-assisted accuracy.

Controlled by a variable speed-controlled foot switch, a dentist can transition easily from working on hard tissues like enamel to softer tissues like gums by simply easing the pressure on the foot switch.

Results Speak Volumes

The software used in Solea is constantly being updated over the dentist office’s Wi-Fi connection. Being a computer-guided laser technology that can be used for any type of dental work, continual software updates keep Solea at the cutting edge of the dental industry. It is such a breakthrough that the Solea system won the Popular Science “Best of What’s New” award in 2014.

While it is still relatively new, people who learn of it are flocking to dental offices that offer the Solea laser system. It allows patients to undergo virtually pain-free, anesthesia-free dental work. Dental offices that have Solea are reporting skyrocketing growth in their practice and a very high rate of referrals by satisfied patients.

The numbers speak volumes. Solea is changing the way people feel about going to the dentist.
