On Monday, I had a chance to chat with Solea founder Michael Cataldo.  We spent some time discussing the newest edition of the company’s Solea CO2 laser.  I’ve known Mike for several years, pretty much since Solea came on the market.  He is a smart individual who is driven to make a better laser platform for dentistry.  The new Solea is detailed below.  I think you’ll be impressed…
New, Smaller Solea Cuts Faster, Smoother and 99.2% Anesthesia-Free 
Convergent Dental Inc., developers of Solea®, the industry-leading CO2 all-tissue dental laser, is pleased to announce The Next Generation of Solea. The latest advancements provide unprecedented performance, significant software upgrades, improved ergonomics, increased accessibility and a smaller footprint.

“This new generation of Solea provides a quantum leap in performance at every level. Most importantly it enables dentists to do virtually 100% of cavity preps anesthesia-free,” remarked Convergent Dental CEO Michael Cataldo. “In addition, Solea now cuts faster and smoother so dentists get more done in less time with an even better patient experience.”

Solea earned its reputation for enabling dramatic practice growth and reduced stress for dentists and patients by taking anesthesia, bleeding, sutures, and discomfort out of the dental experience. Before the launch of this new platform, Solea dentists reported doing 4 – 6 more procedures per day while feeling like they were doing less work. With this new generation, Solea dentists will benefit from even more growth while enjoying an even more relaxing work day. Better still, it all comes in a smaller package that is even easier to use.

Unprecedented Clinical Performance - Statistics collected from over 1,000 procedures in early use of the new Solea platform include:

  • Improved anesthesia-free performance - nearly 100% of cavity preps were completed without anesthesia and without discomfort. 
  • Faster hard tissue cutting by 31% compared to the previous platform.
  • 10% smoother surface finishes providing better margins and reduced prep time.
  • Faster soft tissue cutting with minimal to no bleeding.
  • Smaller Footprint - Solea is 15% slimmer, making it easier to move around the office and operatory.
  • Enhanced Software – User-customizable options, user-specific profiles and faster start-up.
Enhanced Ergonomics - A lighter, more maneuverable handpiece with improved rotation and a wider range of motion.

Improved Remote Access – A 4G LTE mobile data connection has been added along with the existing Wi-Fi capability, improving Solea’s accessibility for software updates and remote service and support.

Actual results: 99.2% of 833 cavities and 132 soft tissue procedures treated successfully without local anesthesia in early use.
