I Love Lasers!!

June 2, 2014

Lasers are so cool!!  I just finished treating a 14 year old girl who had a very large area of decay that would typically require a significant amount of Novocain and drilling, however, our office recently upgraded to Solea lasers which in a large majority of cases makes the need for Novocain and drilling a thing of the past.  I love it!!  The key benefits I’ve experienced using the Solea laser are: 

  • It’s pain free
  • It’s faster because it’s designed to cut through the tooth structure (this means less time in the chair)
  • There’s no sound, no drilling noise and no tapping (as in early generation lasers)

So if you’d prefer to skip the shot and the drilling ask your dentist if they use are practicing with a Solea laser (FYI…I’m not compensated in any way to recommend a Solea laser, in fact the investment is significant, approximately $90K per laser plus the training time required, but Solea is the best laser that I’ve experienced using).   Please feel free to post any questions.
