Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

For cutting-edge laser treatments, the dental team at Skyview Dentistry turns to Solea®, which is the first CO2 laser in dentistry laser to be approved by the FDA for use in both soft and hard tissue dental treatments. Because of its unique 9.3 µm (micron) wavelength, the Solea laser is a fast and noiseless procedure, which doesn’t require any anesthesia or sutures when you undergo the treatment.

The Solea laser is considered an isotopic CO2 laser, which can vaporize your enamel, gum tissues, and dentin painlessly, for both restorative and cosmetic treatments.

What problems can the Solea laser correct?

The Skyview dentists turn to the Solea laser to:

  • Halt tooth decay
  • Eliminate infected gum tissue
  • Eliminate decayed dentin and enamel to prepare a tooth for filling
  • Reshape your uneven or excessive gum tissue
  • Reduce your dentin and enamel to prepare for veneers, crowns, inlays, and onlays
  • Produce a smooth surface after bonding or filling
  • Smooth cracks of chips

It’s no exaggeration to say that this innovative technology is changing the way the dentists at Skyview Dentistry look after your functional and cosmetic dental health.

Am I a candidate for a Solea laser treatment?

If you’re looking for a dental procedure that is noiseless, comfortable, convenient, has minimal bleeding and a faster recovery process, look no further than the Solea laser treatment.

Dr. Byrd suggests that most anyone is an ideal candidate for the Solea laser, regardless of age, and more so if you tend to develop anxiety before undergoing dental treatments.

What should I expect during the laser treatment?

Your dental expert at Skyview Dentistry controls a computerized program that moves small mirrors within the handpiece, adjusting the size and power of the laser beam. The dentist uses a special foot pedal to adjust how fast the Solea laser excises your tissues.

When using the Solea laser technique, your dentist takes less time during your treatment, as opposed to using traditional dental drills.

Following your treatment, you should expect to experience:

  • Maximum comfort without the effects of anesthesia
  • Less bleeding because the laser seals incisions instantly
  • Decreased risk of infections because the laser kills all bacteria in the treatment area
