At Whole Health Dentistry, we strive to create the most home-like, comfortable, and pleasant environment at our practice. Along with her skilled team, Dr. Cynthia Copeland supports an approachable and satisfying experience by investing in advanced, FDA-cleared technologies to accompany the range of integrative treatments available at this practice. Solea® represents a ground-breaking innovation in laser dentistry. It is the first CO2 system to be cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat both hard (teeth) and soft (gums, oral mucosa) tissues. In turn, many different types of patients can benefit from this low-touch, painless, and fear-free addition to various dental treatments.
All laser devices used in dentistry (and other medical applications) work in essentially the same way; beams of light are directed precisely to the damaged areas and tissues or treatment sites. The energy that is generated by this laser light triggers reactions within the targeted tooth structure or gummy tissues. These reactions allow Dr. Copeland to “cut through” or manipulate protective tooth enamel, bone, and gums conservatively, non-invasively, and painlessly. There is no need to use invasive or fear-inducing dental instruments such as scalpels to reshape or penetrate tissues. Laser systems introduced and used by dentists previously were designed to treat either teeth and other hard tissues or gums and other soft tissues. They were not developed to treat dental (teeth) and periodontal (gums) conditions effectively – until Solea® came along.
Solea Laser Dentistry Before and After
Due to these versatile treatment options, Dr. Copeland can use the Solea® system to:
Our patients appreciate that Solea® removes many of the standard “triggers” for dental fear and anxiety. These sources of fear include drills, needles, scissors, and scalpels. Additionally, we are privileged to use Solea® to promote the fastest, natural, painless, and low-risk healing and recovery possible. We only remove or alter those damaged or diseased tissues. So, it is truly a conservative, tissue-preserving process that minimizes the risks of undesirable bleeding and other side effects, as well as untoward complications.
