What is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a technologically advanced, safe alternative to using instruments like drills and scalpels. The Solea CO2 laser utilizes light at a unique wavelength to precisely vaporize soft tissue, tooth, or bone without any contact. This light is delivered in thousands of pulses per second, providing an effect than is almost completely painless—very little discomfort if any at all. When using this technology, 9 out of 10 patients don’t require local anesthesia for fillings, which allows you to enjoy pain-free, blood-free and needleless treatments. Plus, you won’t need sutures because laser dentistry promotes healing.

What Procedures Can Laser Dentistry Help With?

One of the reasons we invested in the Solea Laser is that it can assist with various dental treatments, including:

  • Tooth decay: We can use a laser to remove decay within a tooth, and we can prepare the surrounding enamel to accommodate your filling.
  • Gum disease: Lasers can be used to reshape gums, removing bacteria in the process. They can also be used to remove bacteria during root canal therapy.
  • Biopsy: In some cases, we may see warning signs of problems like oral cancer that may require a biopsy. With a laser, we can remove lesions or small pieces of tissue, even relieving the pain of problems like canker sores.
