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.
“Dr. Worrel and his team are great! I had two fillings done yesterday. I had a broken tooth and a cavity. I didnt need local anesthesia because they used an awesome technology that used a laser to numb my tooth! Dr. Worrel was very kind and asked me if i had any discomfort throughout the procedure.”
“Very welcoming, friendly, and informative. Had a very good experience and I'm definitely going to refer my friends and family here. The people here are awesome!!! I'd recommend everyone to go check them out :)”
“Dr. Worrell and his staff are the most attentive and most caring of any dental office we've ever been to, EVER! My wife, Zee and I have been receiving treatments for the last couple of year involving restorations, crowns & implants and he and his fabulous team could not have been more considerate and more flexible with our ever evolving treatment plans. He's gentle and his bedside manners are most genuine and most compassionate. We highly recommend this office for all your dentistry needs.”
