Reliably Anesthesia- and Blood-free Dentistry Delivers Better Outcomes

People often associate the dentist with having a cavity filled. This can lead to anxiety and fear, as well as thoughts of the pain and the disturbing sound of the drill. If they’re in a situation where they’ve had soft tissue surgery, they may also think of stitches and the taste of blood.

Dental practices often struggle to overcome these negative associations while providing a comfortable, caring environment for patients that makes them happy to return. It is important to get rid of the noise, pain, needles, and vibrations that can come with dental visits.

Solea is the FDA-approved, computer-aided CO2 9.3-micron laser for soft and hard tissue ablation. Its unique wavelength absorbs water and hydroxyapatite well, making it able to vaporize both tooth structure as well as gingiva at a shallow penetration depth. This allows dentists and patients to trust its analgesic effects and speed.

CASE STUDY – CLASS V SUPBGINGIVAL #22 WITH SOLEA


PATIENT:A patient of 92 years old presented to the clinic for his annual checkup. An oral examination revealed that a failed composite restoration had recurring decay below the gum line. The objective of the clinical evaluation was to remove decay and replace the tooth with composite resin.

PROCEDURE: The entire procedure was done anesthesia-free.A gingivectomy was performed without the need for blood. After that, the dentist quickly moved on to removing the hard tissue decay. By simply varying the pressure on Solea’s foot pedal, both were performed using the 1.25 millimeter spot size with 40% max cutting speed, and 100% mist. The final restoration was completed using a burr, but without the need for anesthesia.

OUTCOME:No pain was reported by the patient after surgery. The tissue healed very quickly. Preparation took only one minute. This procedure took only one minute with traditional instruments. It would have taken approximately 20 minutes to complete and would have required injectable anesthetic. This case demonstrates Solea’s precision and the fast healing it enables.

RELIABLY ANESTHESIA-FREE DENTISTRY

The gate control theory of pain asserts that non-painful input can close nerve “gates” to painful input, which prevents the sensation of pain from reaching the central nervous system. Solea vaporizes tooth structure, soft tissue, at an extremely high frequency of up to 10,000 pulses per seconds. This is thought to overload pain receptors and prevent pain signals ever reaching the brain. It creates an analgesic effect which allows dental work without pain, numbness, and needles.

VIRTUALLY BLOOD-FREE DENTISTRYSolea Blood-Free Dentistry

The wavelength of the laser’s penetration depth is a key factor in cutting soft tissue. It determines whether it bleeds or not. In order to close off the blood vessel, the laser’s penetration depth has to be at least equal to the diameter of the blood vessel, otherwise, the vessel remains open and bleeding occurs. At 9.3 microns, Solea’s penetration depth is slightly greater than the diameter of a blood vessel which is why Solea is virtually blood-free.

DELIVERS GET BETTER OUTCOMES

Solea can be used to treat hard tissue. It allows for selective tissue ablation. This preserves healthy tooth structure and minimizes the chance of iatrogenic harm. Solea also has a bactericidal function. laser energy kills bacteriaWith which it comes in touch.

Solea allows precise control for soft and osseous tissues. It is both trauma- and blood-free. Dentists may:

  • You can easily cut around crown margins for better quality scans or impressions.
  • Quickly and easily uncover the implant.
  • Provide a positive patient experience with minimal to no discomfort after surgery and rapid healing.

Solea provides a pain-free, painless, and drill-free experience for patients. New patient referrals increase when the anxiety source is removed. Attrition drops.

Solea allows users to achieve better clinical outcomes for soft and hard tissue procedures than traditional instruments.
