For most individuals, an afternoon at the dentist’s office evokes anxiety and dread. The idea of loud drills and sharp, jagged tools scratching away at enamel is enough to make many patients reluctant about dental treatment. But these dental tropes no longer have to be the standard — by utilizing a Solea® dental laser, a form of laser dentistry, our dentists in Orlando, FL are able to provide quick, nearly painless treatments for many common conditions.
A Solea® laser is a CO2 (carbon dioxide) based dental technology that allows for treatment to be done on both hard tissues (teeth) and soft tissues (gums). Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Solea® laser utilizes a distinct form of wavelength — 9.3 micrometers — that effectively vaporizes enamel and allows for incredibly fast and precise treatments. Aided with computer technology, specialized handpieces, and a variable speed foot pedal, our dentists can accurately control the pressure, speed, and accuracy of the laser, all while easily transitioning from hard to soft tissues, and vice versa. These state-of-the-art features are unique to the Solea® system and provide much more efficient and thorough dental work when compared to other, dated forms of dental laser machines.
Patients that suffer a sense of dread or anxiety when they arrive at the dentist are certainly not out of the norm. At Thornton Park Dental Arts, we aim to give all of our patients a pleasant, comfortable experience during their time at our Orlando dentist office. Through the use of the Solea® laser, patients can see reduced treatment times, with several common procedures — such as plaque removal and certain forms of cosmetic dentistry — able to be completed in just a few minutes. Due to the entire process being virtually silent and free of pain, blood, and needles, patients can be in and out of our office in record time, all without the need for anesthetic, sharp metals or prolonged healing times. What’s more, if several areas of the mouth require work, it’s incredibly easy to move from one area to the next meaning patients can potentially get all their needed dental work completed in just a single visit.
To keep a smile looking healthy, our cosmetic dentists rework and clean teeth to help produce a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance. Cosmetic procedures generally require several dental visits and involve an extensive recovery process that typically inhibits daily habits and diets. By utilizing the Solea® laser, treatment time is often reduced to just a single visit, and patients can enjoy dental implants, cavity-free teeth, and more without unnecessary downtime.
At Thornton Park Dental Arts, we understand that a trip to the dentist isn’t always a pleasant experience. Being poked and prodded with cold, metal instruments and leaving feeling sore and groggy isn’t anyone’s idea of a great time, which is why we’ve incorporated the Solea® dental laser into our dentistry routines. In an effort to ensure patients can leave feeling delighted with their finished dental work, we use dental lasers to help give patients the treatment they require while providing the comfort and care that they desire.
