Laser Dentistry at Summerville Pediatric Dentistry
Our overall goal is to create positive dental experiences for your child, so we must do everything we can to make them comfortable and reduce anxiety. We are very excited to be able to provide the option of laser dentistry to your child in the form of our Solea CO2 laser!
The Solea laser helps us fight dental anxiety and reduce the need for sedation, mitigate pain and bleeding, promote faster healing after procedures, and make for an all-around more efficient use of each visit. It is a cutting-edge, unique and innovative laser that reduces the need for traditional drills, incisions (…the dreaded needle!), and numbness in most dental procedures we provide. The Solea is a breakthrough in modern dentistry and allows us to provide the care your child needs, virtually pain and blood-free, without the need for anesthetic or sutures. This means children can get right back to school after their appointments, without worrying about long-lasting numbness.
In eliminating the need for anesthesia-related injections in addition to shorter procedure in-chair time, the laser significantly improves our young patients' experiences in our office. This makes behavior management much more manageable than with more invasive, louder, and potentially painful tools; a win-win for both patient and dentist! The Solea works effectively on both hard and soft tissue, making it a versatile solution for several pediatric dental procedures.
