Air Abrasion

Until recently, using the traditional dental handpiece was the only way we had to remove decay from your teeth. But now, we have a new option called air abrasion that allows us to remove decay on teeth without even touching them.

Air abrasion has several advantages over traditional techniques:

  • There is no vibration.
  • Little or no heat is generated.
  • There's usually no need for anesthetic, so that uncomfortable numb feeling is avoided.
  • We can precisely remove a minimal amount of tooth structure, preserving more of your natural tooth.
