Nicely done.

Thanks Ron - For soft tissue procedures like frenectomies, I use local anesthesia a little more than 50% of the time with my adult patients, and less than 10% of the time with the kids and babies. For more involved procedures like gingivoplasty, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, vestibuloplasty, etc. I am using local anesthesia on almost everyone. The settings remained the same from the beginning to the end of the procedure, and the whole procedure is recorded in the video (nothing was done before the video started). On this procedure, the Solea laser was "pedal to the metal" with a pulse duration of 30ms and irrigation at 70%. Best ~ Jason Tubo

Nicely done, Jason. What percent of the time do you need to do local anesthesia and for what soft tissue procedures? And finally, please let us know what settings you were on at the start or did you use a different setting before the video started?

This is an amazing tool for soft tissue work. When I bought my Solea, I had low expectations for soft tissue since I was using a 10,600nm CO2 laser. BUT.... I quickly realized that Solea is an even better soft tissue laser due to speed and precision. Less need for anesthesia as seen here. Combine that with a fast and precise laser for all my direct restorative with 97% anesthesia free and I am a happy dentist. If you slow down your hand movement a bit you will get a faster and smoother result. Great job! Michael Kelly

Great example of what Solea is capable of doing. Precise, quick, bloodless and anesthesia free.
