Solea is the first CO2 laser system cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for hard and soft tissues and the first computer-aided preparation system for dentistry. The dental laser's 9.3-µm wavelength and application of computer controls enable the laser to replace the drill as the primary tool for hard- and soft-tissue surgeries.
"Convergent Dental's CO2 dental laser Solea is changing what it means to go to the dentist by providing a technology that delivers fast, virtually painless, noiseless, anesthesia-free procedures that alleviate patients' fears and encourage them to receive proper oral care to stay healthy and happy," Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo stated in a press release.
The Solea laser also received a 2014 Dental Excellence Award in the Best New Instrument/Device category from DrBicuspid.com at the recent ADA annual meeting in San Antonio.
