Do you have sensory issues that make going to the dentist an unpleasant experience? You want to take good care of your oral health, but the continuous sounds of dental drills are uncomfortable. You may also have a fear of needles. Thanks to Solea laser dentistry in West Salem WI, both problems are a thing of the past.
What is the Solea Laser, and When Do We Use It?
Solea is the name brand of a handheld instrument connected to a computer that makes it possible for Dr. Jim Allen or Dr. Mark Mueller to complete several types of dental procedures with minimal noise or pain. The Solea laser also significantly reduces the time you must spend in the dental chair. Here are the procedures most amiable to the Solea laser:
- Crown lengthening
- Cutting through gum tissue or bone when necessary
- Filling cavities
- Removing amalgam fillings
- Removing oral tumors or fibromas from the mouth
- Removing tooth enamel for a cosmetic or restorative dental process
- Treating gum disease with scaling and root planing
- Tongue tie surgery
The computer program seamlessly sends vibrations to the handheld piece, allowing your dentist to complete the work you need in a fraction of the time and without the usual discomfort. Solea laser dentistry in West Salem WI is perfect for kids and adults alike. Children tend to be much more cooperative when they know they won’t need a shot and that there won’t be any pain or lasting numbness.
