Solea is the first CO2 laser system ever cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue ablation. It’s fast, precise, virtually noiseless and anesthesia-free for the vast majority of procedures. Patients love the experience. Dentists love the dramatically-improved efficiency. This is the laser you’ve been waiting for.
Solea dentists are experiencing efficiency gains of 25% – 40%, enabling them to routinely perform six or more additional procedures per day. Without anesthesia and bleeding, you save time. Lots of time. You don’t inject patients or wait for them to get numb. You can work in multiple quadrants in a single visit, fill cavities discovered during hygiene appointments in the same day, and do soft tissue procedures you would have referred out prior. Patients love getting more done in fewer visits and you will too.
Solea is a complete paradigm shift in traditional dentistry. Without vibration, noise, needle or blood, you will deliver an entirely new experience for your patients. One that’s better from start to finish.
Fast and Easy
Solea’s unique 9.3 µm wavelength operates significantly faster and quieter than any other hard tissue laser on the market. Solea’s speed and reliably anesthesia-free performance mean you and your patients will benefit from dramatically-reduced chair time.
You’re In Control
Solea is the first Computer Aided Preparation (CAP) system in dentistry. It has a familiar handpiece, easy-to-navigate touch screen and an incredibly responsive variable speed foot pedal so you’ll be in complete command from the beginning. Solea is simple to use and can be mastered in just one day.
Anesthesia-Free or your Money Back
Solea dentists report doing more than 95% of their hard and soft tissue procedures without anesthesia. We are so sure you will too, we guarantee it. If you don’t perform at least 90 percent of your Solea procedures anesthesia-free within 90 days, you can return the system and get your money back.
New technologies become great new technologies when they change people’s lives. Solea operates at a unique wavelength with sophisticated, yet simple computer controls that enable high-speed, precision cutting on both hard and soft tissue. Solea works on just about everything – from gingiva to dentin to enamel.
Isotopic CO2 Laser
Solea performs entirely differently than any laser before. Native CO2 lasers, at 10.6 µm, are only useful on soft tissue. And erbium lasers only vaporize water and slowly chip enamel away. Solea uses an oxygen-18 isotope and other modifications to emit 9.3 µm, matching the peak absorption of hydroxyapatite.
The result? The isotopic CO2 laser actually vaporizes enamel, giving you the power to work anywhere in the oral cavity, from any angle, with speed and ease. Even decayed tissue and interproximal cutting won’t slow you down or compromise your performance. And for soft tissue, you will love how it allows you to feather into cuts with more speed, precision and less bleeding than you ever imagined.
Solea’s powerful 9.3 µm beam is optimized by galvos – computer-controlled motors that move mirrors inside the handpiece. The mirrors manipulate the beam thousands of times per second, creating patterns that are perfect for the tissue you are cutting, be it enamel, dentin or soft tissue. Galvos are a key component in Computer Aided Preparation (CAP), which gives you speed, accuracy and control unprecedented in a dental laser.
Solea is the only dental laser that allows you to select a spot size specific to the job at hand. No more focusing and defocusing affecting power and speed as you go. You simply select the desired spot size and the computer does the rest, no compromises.
Variable Speed Foot Pedal
Solea’s variable speed foot pedal is unique among lasers in dentistry. The harder you press, the faster it cuts – there’s rarely a need to stop and change settings. Solea increases control, saves time, and makes for an intuitive, easy transition from the drill.
Solea has three handpieces – the Contra-Angle, Straight and Ultraguide. All three handpieces are crafted from stainless steel, ergonomically designed to feel virtually weightless in your hand. The newest addition is the Ultraguide handpiece, which comes with hollow waveguide attachments of various lengths and widths, each of which is designed for a specific purpose from soft tissue cutting to accessing the periodontal pocket. Each hollow waveguide is designed to enable more precision and access.
