At Southeastern Dental Care in Lakeville, we have invested in the latest dentistry services to help provide patients of all ages with comfortable, effective, precision dental care that keeps them smiling. One of our most advanced dentistry tools is the state-of-the-art Solea laser system. We can use Solea lasers for a wide range of services including gum disease treatment, cavity preparation, and more. Call our team to find out more or schedule an appointment with the caring Lakeville dentistry team at Southeastern Dental Care.
Most lasers are only made to work on specific kinds of tissue, so your dentist needs to invest in numerous types of lasers to provide treatment for hard and soft tissue. The cost of all these different types of lasers is then passed on to you. The Solea laser system allows us to perform both hard and soft tissue treatments with one laser system, and we can extend the savings on to our patients while still providing them with cutting edge dental treatment.
Traditional laser systems either perform soft or hard tissue therapies. The Solea system allows us to perform a wide range of both soft and hard tissue services, including:
Absolutely. Because of the painless, precision treatment, lasers are completely safe. In fact, they are the best options for young patients, patients who have weakened immune systems, and those who are more likely to experience stress or anxiety. Laser therapies are very comfortable and safe.
In most cases, laser dentistry is completely comfortable. In fact, one of the main benefits is that this technology allows us to perform advanced treatments without numbing the mouth using Novocain or other injected local anesthetics. Patients typically report feeling cold air on their teeth, but there is none of the pulling or pressure associated with tooth drilling or scalpel and suture treatments for gum tissue. If at any point during the Solea laser treatment you do experience pain, let our team know right away, so we can adjust your treatment plan accordingly. If you suffer with sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex, we may recommend local anesthetic and/or dental sedation to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
Not at all. In fact, you will receive the same dental insurance coverage for treatments using a Solea laser as you would for these services performed by more traditional methods. That means you are unlikely to notice any high fees at all.
