The Solea Laser takes the drill, the needle, the noise and the pain out of dental visits.

Lasers can make dental treatments more efficient, cost effective, and comfortable.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved laser dentistry as a treatment option for several dental conditions. Additionally, dental insurance usually determines reimbursement costs based on the treatment itself and not on what method is used. Therefore, your compensation is likely to be the same as it would with drilling and other procedures.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are:
Tooth preparations and dental fillings:
Anesthesia and traditional drills are often not needed with laser treatments. Lasers can kill bacteria in a cavity, which can aid in the long-term health of a tooth.
If you were to see someone with a tooth-colored filling smile, laugh, or eat, you wouldn’t be able to tell they’ve had any dental work. That’s because these restorations are made of a composite resin that’s designed to match the surrounding enamel and completely blend in. And, because they are metal-free, they don’t cause dental sensitivity like old fillings, and they also lower the risk of a tooth cracking in the future.
Treating tongue frenulum attachment:
Those with a thick or tight frenulum (the fold of skin under the front part of tongue that anchors to the mouth floor) may benefit from a laser frenectomy. This treatment helps children whose restricted frenulum causes them to be tongue-tied, have difficulty breastfeeding, or have a speech impediment.
Treating cold sores:
Lasers can minimize healing time and reduce pain from cold sores or cancer sores. Treating obstructive sleep apnea: Lasers can reshape the throat and relieve associated breathing problems when sleep apnea is caused by tissue overgrowth in the throat.
Gingivectomy or Treating a “gummy smile”:
Lasers are used to reshape gum tissue associated with “gummy smile,” in which the gums’ length covers much of the tooth.
