Lasers are having a big affect on our Washougal, WA patients. Cutting-edge technology and advances in laser dentistry such the Solea® dental laser are allowing patients to get their dental worries resolved more efficiently than ever — and with almost no pain!
Solea is optimal for patients who:
- Fear dental treatment
- Can’t tolerate anesthesia or have a low tolerance for pain
- Are young and can’t sit through traditional dental treatment
- Want a more efficient and effective form of treatment
The Solea Dental Laser is the first FDA-approved CO2 laser designed for use on soft (gum) and hard (teeth) tissues. Dr. Dave Stinchfield and Dr. Tom Stinchfield can use it in place of more traditional tools like dental drills. It can be used in the treatment of a variety of situations, from fillings and crowns to other restorative dental work.
One of the greatest things about Solea for our patients is there is usually no need for anesthesia. This saves you time and a lot of discomfort. Most often, your entire procedure can be completed in our office — with no need for you to be referred elsewhere — which saves you even more time.
Because of these benefits, you’ll also be able to make fewer visits to the office, since we’ll be able to finish more in one visit.
Patients who are usually anxious about going to the dentist no longer have any reason to worry. Solea lets them have a totally different experience: free of pain, drills, and needles.
This also applies to young children who are afraid of the dentist or just can’t sit safely or comfortably through traditional dental treatment. You or your child won’t feel a thing, and that’s exciting for both you and us!
Solea is making a huge difference in the dental industry: shaping the way it moves forward, and becoming a new standard for patient care. We’re excited to offer this state-of-the-art treatment to our patients and their families.
If you find yourself in need of dental work, our office is trained and ready to get you smiling quickly and painlessly with Solea!
