Air Abrasion

Our alternative to the drill is air abrasion; a method of cleaning out tooth decay.

One advantage of air abrasion is that you don’t hear any noise or feel any vibration. Air abrasion works like a tiny sandblaster. Compressed air and an abrasive powder wear decay off your tooth.

Needle phobes also may have reason to rejoice. For shallower cavities, you may not need an anesthetic, although the air and the abrasive powder can cause some sensitivity.

The procedure is relatively simple and quick. Often, if a small cavity is found during a checkup, the dentist can fill it the same day in about 10 minutes using air abrasion.
