Talk to Us!

If you experience any anxiety before a dentist appointment, please let us know. We will address all of your concerns. We know that communication helps to relieve stress, so please let us know about anything that concerns you. Whether you have had bad experiences in the past, or if you have a low pain tolerance, a strong gag reflex, or an aversion to needles, we can help. Don’t hesitate to ask questions—we will explain every procedure to your satisfaction, and explore treatment options together to find the best solutions for you.

Drill-Free Fillings

Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry can repair cavities without the drill! We use advanced air abrasion technology to remove early cavities and perform other procedures. During air abrasion, a pen-sized instrument uses compressed air to spray a stream of micro-particles at your tooth. Air abrasion is very gentle and completely painless—there is no anesthesia required, which is an added benefit for patients who dislike needles.

Laser Therapy for Gingivitis

We use diode laser treatments to help reverse and prevent gum disease. This procedure is a non-invasive way to treat gum disease without surgery. Laser treatment is quick, effective, and completely painless. The laser seeks out and eliminates infected tissue, destroys the bacteria that are causing the infection, and stimulates the growth of new, healthy tissue.
