Laser dentistry utilizes sophisticated tools to create treatment experiences that are more comfortable and more efficient. With laser treatment, dentists can precisely treat soft tissue problems, contour gum lines, or even prepare teeth for restorations by targeting hard tissue.
Dental laser technology is constantly evolving, providing dentists with better ways to promote healthy smiles and treat a growing number of oral health issues with less hassle and discomfort. Varying dental lasers use water and laser power or a specific wavelength of light that is calibrated to affect only certain tissue.
What Makes Solea® Different?
With the variety of dental lasers on the market, many dentists choose lasers that only target soft tissue or hard tissue, depending on the dental issues they most commonly treat at their practices. There are even some lasers that can be adjusted to affect both hard and soft tissue for comprehensive care.
Solea®, owned by Convergent Dental, is made to treat dental enamel, soft tissue, and even bone without making adjustments to laser wavelengths. As an isotropic CO2 laser, Solea® is different than typical carbon dioxide lasers that are used just to treat gums or dental lasers that are meant to remove decayed dental enamel. Solea® is the first laser of its kind to be approved by the FDA for such a wide variety of applications.
