For certain small cavities, Air Abrasion can mean NO needles and NO
drills. It is a relatively new technology in dentistry. A high powered
stream of air, with powder, cleans decay from small cavities on the chewing
surfaces of back teeth, allowing a white filling to be bonded in place.
In the right circumstances it is quick, painless and conserves tooth
structure. If you have any cavities that are good candidates for this
procedure, we will certainly let you know.
