What is a dental laser, and how is it used?
The Solea laser is used to remove decay from teeth in place of a traditional drill. Although they perform the same task, the laser removes decay by a different method (vaporization) than a traditional drill (physical cutting). Due to this difference, the laser is more comfortable than a traditional drill, and 95% of the time does not require anesthesia. Lastly, the laser does not have the grinding sensation or the shrill sound of a traditional drill, and therefore makes the dental visit much more enjoyable.
