Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics Now Offering Anesthesia-free Laser Procedures
February 16, 2015 by SoWal Staff
Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics is proud to announce that it has added the Solea Laser to its practice, which is the first Solea Laser to be located in the state of Florida. Solea’s technology offers patients an anesthesia-free alternative to the traditional drill for hard and soft tissue procedures. Its unique 9.3 µm wavelength provides a natural anesthetic effect while also affording dentists the ability to cut dental enamel with unprecedented speed and precision. Patients experience virtually soundless, painless and sensationless procedures that take a fraction of the time of a traditional dental appointment because practitioners do not need to inject anesthetic or control bleeding.
“We are able to work more efficiently with a painless touch and patients love it”, said Dr. Michael O’Donnell. “It’s always been our goal to offer excellent dentistry with the latest technology to our patients in the most comfortable way possible. The Solea Laser has elevated us to achieve that goal while increasing confidence amongst our patients. This laser has also allowed us to offer orthodontic procedures that typically require an oral surgery referral so our patients can take care of more dental needs under one roof".
Investments in modern technology are what set Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics apart from everyone else. Solea delivers a completely different experience than the traditional drill. No more needles. No more jarring noises. No more soreness. Solea users report to the laser manufacturer that 95 percent of their hard and soft tissue procedures are done with no anesthesia and virtually no bleeding. Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontic patients will be able to receive the oral care they need and immediately jump back into their day. No anesthesia means no risk of patients biting themselves so the traditional limit of working in a single quadrant per visit is a thing of the past. Now patients can get all of their dental needs addressed in a single visit making it easy to return to work or home and avoid missing valuable “up-time”.
“Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics is at the forefront of a dental revolution,” said the Solea Laser manufacturer’s CEO Michael Cataldo. “People all over the country have been pleasantly shocked after experiencing anesthesia-free and virtually pain-free procedures. The skilled practitioners at Great Florida Smiles & Orthodontics are now able to deliver that experience to each one of their patients.”
