Solea Laser for Kids Dentistry

Is the Solea laser safe?

Here are some key reasons why the Solea laser is deemed safe for kids:

  • Reduced Pain and Discomfort: The Solea laser often minimizes or even eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures, which is particularly beneficial for children who may be more sensitive or anxious about dental treatments.
  • Less Need for Anesthesia: Many procedures performed with the Solea laser do not require local anesthesia.  
  • Precision: The laser offers high precision, allowing dentists to target treatment areas accurately without affecting surrounding tissues. This precision reduces the risk of tissue damage and improves healing times.
  • Reduced Bleeding and Swelling: The Solea laser's ability to ablate as it cuts often results in less bleeding during procedures and less swelling afterward, making the recovery process easier and more comfortable for children.
  • Decreased Risk of Infection: The laser sterilizes the area being treated, which can reduce the risk of infection following dental procedures.
    FDA Approval: The Solea laser has been cleared by the U.S.
  • Training and Expertise: Dentists using the Solea laser undergo specific training to ensure they can use the technology safely and effectively.

What procedures can be done with Solea?

Here's a detailed breakdown of the clinical applications of the Solea Laser in pediatric dentistry, focusing on common procedures, advantages in specific scenarios, and limitations and considerations:

Common Pediatric Dental Procedures Using Solea Laser

Cavity Treatment

Procedure: The Solea Laser is used to remove decayed tooth material and prepare the tooth for a filling or crown.
Benefits: This process is often faster and more comfortable for children, as it usually requires no anesthesia and causes minimal discomfort.

Gum Reshaping
Procedure: For children with excessive gum tissue or uneven gum lines, the Solea Laser can contour or reshape the gums.
Benefits: It offers a bloodless procedure with reduced swelling and discomfort, enhancing cosmetic and functional outcomes.

Soft Tissue Procedures
Procedure: This includes frenectomies (treatment of tongue-tie or lip-tie) and other soft tissue surgeries.
Benefits: The laser allows for precise cutting with minimal bleeding and quicker healing, making it ideal for young patients.

Advantages in Specific Dental Scenarios

  • Minimally Invasive: Solea Laser treatments are less invasive than traditional methods, which is particularly beneficial in pediatric dentistry, where preserving healthy tissue is crucial.
  • Reduced Trauma and Anxiety: The quiet, drill-free nature of the laser can reduce fear and anxiety associated with dental visits.
  • Quick Recovery: Children can often return to normal activities soon after a procedure due to less pain and quicker healing.
  • Better Cooperation: The comfort and speed of laser procedures can lead to better cooperation from pediatric patients during treatments.
  • Multi-Quadrant Dentistry: Allows for treating multiple areas in a single visit, reducing the number of appointments needed.

Limitations and Considerations

  • Cost and Accessibility: The high cost of Solea Laser equipment can make it so it is notavailable in all dental offices.
  • Training Requirements: Effective and safe use of the Solea Laser requires specialized training and skill, which not all pediatric dentists may have.
  • Case Selection: While versatile, the Solea Laser is not suitable for every dental procedure. Traditional methods might be preferable in certain cases, depending on the specific dental and medical history of the child.
  • Sensitivity to Sound: Some children may be sensitive to the sound of the laser, although it is generally less noisy than traditional drills.
