Air abrasion is a special technique used to remove a cavity without a shot, needle or drill. It is especially useful for patients who suffer from dental anxiety or have a low pain threshold, since the process itself is virtually painless, quiet and minimally invasive. Our patients find it a more comfortable procedure because of the lack of sound, vibration and shots that are usually required for drilling.
The air abrasion tool uses a concentrated blast of air and tiny aluminum oxide particles, which is an ingredient found in many toothpastes. The dentist uses the tool to blast away decay, much like a sand blaster. This improves your oral health while keeping the structure of your natural tooth more intact than a drill would. Overall, it is a much more efficient, virtually painless and non-invasive way to remove a cavity.
