We live in a time where new technological developments are being made every single day. Advances in dental technology have greatly improved how we can diagnose different issues and provide you with care, greatly improving the outcomes of your dental care and your patient experience. One of these technological developments is laser dentistry. At Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry, we use laser dentistry for several different treatments, allowing us to optimize your oral care and the health of your mouth.
Laser dentistry is a treatment that involves using a dental laser to perform a variety of different procedures. The laser uses a concentrated beam of light approximately the thickness of a human hair. The wavelength of the laser can be adjusted, allowing it to be used for different purposes. Depending on the set wavelength, we can cut soft tissue or remove bone. The laser can even be used to stimulate the growth of new tissue.
Uses for Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry can be used in many different situations.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry

How Safe Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is very safe. Just like using any other tool to perform dental treatments, however, there are still some risks that are present. The light emitted from the laser can harm your eyes. Before treatment, you are provided with special eyewear to prevent issues. Using the wrong wavelength can also cause permanent damage. We are highly experienced in the use of lasers to perform dental treatment, which greatly reduces any risks you might experience.
Laser dentistry allows us to provide you with a much greater quality of care, helping to optimize your oral health and improve your patient experience. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry today at (623) 562-5230.
