What Are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry Using Solea?

Solea CO2 Laser MachineThe benefits of laser dentistry are extremely straightforward. With this advanced technology, patients can expect:

Less Procedure Time

Laser dentistry allows Dr. Q an unmatched level of accuracy and speed. With this advancement in technology, there is no need to numb the surgical area for most procedures. Our goal is to provide you with some of the best patient care possible, and we know that means making your procedure quick and efficient so you can get back to your daily activities. With Solea Laser, Dr. Q can get you back to your daily activities in no time.

Less Bleeding

One of the things most patients fear is seeing blood or knowing that they are bleeding. Using a drill for soft tissue procedures usually results in some blood being drawn. With laser dentistry, Dr. Q is able to get a better picture of your teeth and gums because of advanced computer technology. Since she has a better picture of what is happening with your teeth, she can navigate hard-to-reach areas with experienced exactitude, resulting in less trauma to your teeth and gums.

No Anesthesia

With laser dentistry, there is no need to use anesthesia on the surgical site. Why? Well, it’s simple: there is no drill. With a drill, the surgical area needs to be numb in order to limit the amount of discomfort or pain that the patient feels. For procedures using laser dentistry at Dr. Q Dental, anesthesia is a thing of the past! There is no need to use anesthesia because the laser is so atraumatic most Monrovia patients don’t feel a thing.
