Laser Dentistry








We are proud to announce that Truckee Pediatric Dentistry is one of a small number of pediatric dental offices in Caifornia and Nevada and the first in the Truckee/Tahoe area to use the Solea CO2 laser.  Solea virtually eliminates or dramatically minimizes the need for local anesthetic injections as well as using a "drill" for dental fillings.


SOLEA is the first CO2 dental laser system cleared by the FDA for hard and soft tissue procedures. It was developed in Boston, MA by Convergent Dental, bases on research conducted at UCSF.  Solea offers a unique wavelength guided by sophisticated computers to deliver virtually painless dental procedures for both teeth and gums from simple cavities to complex surgeries.  Not only is the laser virtually painless, it isalso vibration-less and noiseless.  The experience is so unique that you will find it hard to believe you were just at the dentist!

The majority of hard and soft tissue procedures in our office are done with virtually no anesthesia and soft tissue procedures are done with virtually no bleeding.  Blod-free and anesthesia-free procedures represent a major leap forward in dentistry, as we are able to execute multi-quadrant dentistry, fillings on the fly and soft tissue procedures in a single appointment.  What does that mean for you, our patients? You are now able to receive the care you need in a fraction of the time.  When patients have anesthesia they typically leave the office with that numb feeling still prevalent.  With Solea, you are able to go right out to lunch or back to school without that numb sensation following your appointment.  Solea is truly changing what it means to go to the dentist.
