What Happens During an Air Abrasion Procedure?
Air abrasion treatment works with a mini sandblaster tool that is used to spray away your dental decay. A narrow stream of particles blasts the decayed portion of your tooth. The stream is composed of silica, aluminum oxide, or a baking soda mixture. The stream is powered by compressed air that pushes through the dental hand-piece. The decay is displaced by the force of the stream and then vacuumed away through a thin tube.
Why Choose Air Abrasion?
- No heat, noise, pressure, or vibration
- Less need for anesthetics (needles)
- Less invasive
- Dry procedure
- Reduced risk of tooth fracturing and chipping
- Treat multiple sites in one appointment
- Faster than drilling procedures
How Is Air Abrasion Used?
