REDUCING ENAMEL DEMINERALIZATION
9.3-micron CO2 Advantage
The Solea® All-Tissue Laser is the first and only laser cleared by the FDA to aid in the reduction of mineral loss in dental enamel. Solea Protect helps to inhibit caries development by gently heating the surface of tooth enamel, removing carbonate impurities within hydroxyapatite to create a strong, crystal-like structure that is more resistant to tooth decay. The key to safely and effectively delivering this treatment is Solea’s novel 9.3-micron wavelength.

Elevate Your Practice
Solea is the only 9.3-micron CO2 laser. This novel technology enables you to work on everything from enamel to dentin to decay to gingiva to bone, gliding through tissue using a variable-speed foot pedal. It’s fast, precise, and reliably anesthesia-free for cavity preps, plus blood-free and suture-free for most soft tissue surgeries.
By integrating this comprehensive dental practice solution with Solea Protect, you are able to offer both a unique preventative treatment and an anxiety-free experience when restorative work is required.
Fissure caries inhibition with a CO2 9.3-μm short-pulsed laser—arandomized, single-blind, split-mouth controlled, 1-year clinical trial
Microsecond short-pulsed 9.3-μm CO2 laser irradiation markedly inhibits caries progression in pits and fissures in comparison with fluoride varnish alone.
The results demonstrate a significant benefit of the 9.3 μm CO2 laser at fluences of 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0 J/cm2 in caries‐like lesion inhibition...
Effectiveness of carbonate removal and demineralization inhibition in primary teeth using a 9.3-μm carbon dioxide laser
Irradiation with 9.3-μm CO2 laser on primary teeth reduced the formation of carieslike lesions and was associated with significant removal of acid-soluble carbonate groups from the enamel mineral.
