There are Many Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Dental technology continues to offer patients a better experience with more accurate results and fewer side effects. Dr. Hess uses some of the latest dental technologies at the Union County Center for Comprehensive Dentistry in Monroe, enabling him to perform many cosmetic and restorative dental procedures more effectively with better outcomes and less pain!

Laser dentistry enables Dr. Hess, a cosmetic and general dentist serving the Charlotte area, to treat patients for a variety of dental problems with less pain, less bleeding, fewer side effects and a faster recovery. Dr. Hess uses state of the art dental lasers that enable him to more accurately treat the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the gums, without a metal scalpel.

The dental laser allows Dr. Hess to create accurate incisions with minimized bleeding and swelling: the heat and energy created by the dental laser can both numb the treated area and coagulate blood quickly to reduce bleeding and swelling. For patients, this can mean less pain and a speedier recovery: in many cases there is no need for anesthetics at all!

Laser dentistry can effectively be used for treating gum disease, placing dental implants and other dental procedures that would traditionally require a surgical incision. The use of laser dentistry reduces or eliminates the need for using sutures- which frequently require a return trip to the dentist for removal.

For patients who suffer from dental anxiety, the use of laser dentistry can provide a much more predictable experience with less noise and discomfort during treatment. If you have been avoiding the dentist due to feeling anxious about possible treatment, Dr. Hess can discuss how laser dentistry may enhance your dental treatment and allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable.

Laser dentistry with Dr. Hess in Monroe can help to restore your oral health or enhance your smile- a trip to the dentist can be a pleasure!
