WHAT IS SOLEA?

Marketing:*Clients:Convergent Dental:_ART/ASSETS:Logo:Solea:Jpeg:Solea_Logo_RGB.pngSolea is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard, soft and osseous tissue procedures. It was developed in Boston, Massachusetts by Convergent Dental, based on research conducted at the University of California School of Dentistry.  Solea offers a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums from simple cavities to complex surgeries.  The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you were just at a dental appointment.

 

WHY SOLEA?

The majority of hard and soft tissue procedures in our office are done with virtually no anesthesia and soft tissue procedures are done with virtually no bleeding. Blood-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry, as we are able to execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fillings on the fly and soft tissue procedures in a single appointment. What does that mean for you, our patients? You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time. When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent. With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to work without that numb sensation following your appointment. Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU?


Greater Comfort
Heat and vibration are what make dental drills hurt. Fortunately, we have a new technology that can replace the drill for many dental procedures. The Solea laser does a lot of work we used to do with a drill - without the heat, vibration and noise. The Solea laser uses gentle laser energy that works without ever touching your teeth. That means we can use fewer shots and less anesthetic in many cases. The laser works on teeth and gums. It can even be used for oral surgery on the bone around teeth.


Fewer Numb Lips
No one likes to leave the dentist’s office with a numb lip. If your laser procedure can be done without anesthetic, you’ll be able to avoid this uncomfortable side effect.


A New Standard of Dental Care
The Solea laser lets us work on your teeth and gums with unprecedented accuracy. Without the heat and vibration of a drill, the laser can precisely remove decay without affecting surrounding healthy tissue. Drills can cause tiny microfractures that can weaken a tooth, and sometimes nick a tooth next to where decay is being removed. Not with the laser.

Shorter Visits, Fewer Visits
Since many procedures can be done without anesthetic, we can eliminate the time it takes to give shots and wait for numbing to occur. So you can get in and out of the dentist’s chair faster. Giving fewer shots and less local anesthetic also allows Dr. McMurtry to work on more cavities at once, since dentists usually avoid numbing more than one area of the mouth at one time.

Faster Healing
Dr. McMurtry may use the Solea laser to prepare your gums around a tooth that requires a crown, or to fix a cavity or tooth fracture below the gumline, or to reshape your gums to improve the appearance of your smile. The laser energy of the Solea laser cuts gums precisely, because it only affects tissue on gums.

For More Than Just Cavities
The Solea laser is extremely versatile. It can be used for a wide range of tooth and “soft” tissue procedures. Besides decay removal and cavity preparation, the Solea laser is great for smile design, gum and bone surgical procedures and many others. Dr. McMurtry cares so much about your comfort that he has invested in the ultimate in dental lasers, the Solea laser from Convergent Dental – absolutely number one in dental lasers. Dr. McMurtry has also receive special training in laser dentistry through the World Clinical Laser Institute, one of the world’s largest laser education organizations and the Academy of Laser Dentistry.
