Solea Laser Dentistry

We’re the only dental office in Nova Scotia to offer treatment with the Solea V3 Dental Laser system. This state-of-the art system doesn’t usually require local anesthetic, and the laser is silent and vibration-free. Laser dentistry can be used for many procedures, including treating decay, cold sores, and canker sores, removing fibromas (skin tags resulting from biting your lips or cheeks) and recontouring gums. The Solea Sleep system is also effective in treating snoring without the need for surgery.

Benefits of laser dentistry

For most patients, the main benefit of laser dentistry is that it can replace the dental drill. Because the laser doesn’t have any moving parts, it doesn’t make noise or cause irritating vibrations while it’s being used.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Dental lasers are approved medical equipment and are safe when they are being used by a trained professional. The laser uses a focused high-energy beam of light to safely vaporize decayed tooth enamel, and the system doesn’t release any harmful radiation.

Is it safe for children?

Yes. Dental lasers are safe for children. In fact, because they are silent and vibration-free, and typically don’t require needles or drills, dental lasers can be a great alternative for children who are anxious about dental appointments.

Solea Sleep snoring cessation treatment

The Solea Sleep system lets us treat snoring by tightening the tissue in your soft palate. The procedure can be done without anesthetic or surgery, with no recovery time. Most patients notice an improvement in their sleep within a week.
