Experience Dentistry Redefined: No More Needles, No More Numbness!

Discover the future of pediatric dentistry with Dr. Poplin exclusive use of the Solea laser. Say goodbye to needles and numbing medications as we perform over 95% of fillings and various procedures painlessly. Your child deserves a stress-free dental visit, and we're proud to be one of the few practices in Austin offering this cutting-edge technology. Dr. Poplin is one of the first adopters of this technology and trains other dentists from all over the country how to use Solea.

Why Solea?

Embrace a faster, quieter, and anesthesia-free dental experience. Dr. Poplin, with complete control via a foot pedal, delivers precise treatment, making your appointments efficient and stress-free.

How Does It Work?

Solea's rapid light pulses (over 1100 times per second) intercept the pain pathway to your brain, creating a sensation akin to an electric toothbrush with cold water—utterly comfortable!

Benefits Of Laser Dentistry

The benefits associated with Solea are many. Some of the most significant advantages of laser dentistry include:

  • The majority of hard- and soft-tissue procedures are completed without local anesthesia (numbing), and soft-tissue procedures occur with virtually no bleeding.

  • Laser dentistry is incredibly precise and often can achieve a more conservative restoration.

  • Using the Solea laser is far less invasive than any cutting instrument, which makes healing time following a procedure much shorter.

  • When patients have local anesthesia, they leave the office still feeling numb. This can cause both adults and children to bite their lip, tongue, or cheek, causing pain and tenderness after dental appointments. With Solea, your child will be able to go right to lunch or back to school without the numbness associated with dental work.

How Will This Laser Benefit My Child?

With Solea, we rarely need to numb our patients for routine restorative work, such as fillings and even crowns. Under traditional methods of dentistry, children must be numbed using local anesthesia for these procedures. We have found that many children do not react well to having numbness, which can last for hours after the procedure. Even though they often do well for the procedure and the actually numbing, the lingering numbness and return of sensation can be quite uncomfortable. Furthermore, no kid likes the idea of getting a shot regardless of how gently it will be done. By using Solea, most children don’t feel like they’ve had dental treatment at all.
