Air Abrasion is an ultra fine, precise, micro “sand blaster” (compressed air plus aluminum oxide) that is used for a variety of dental procedures.  Air Abrasion can replace the drill and allows for procedures to be completed with no or less anesthetic. Using air abrasion is more comfortable (avoiding vibration, pressure, sound, and heat) and less invasive.  Air Abrasion is also a key component to being able to provide clients with high-quality Biomimetic Dentistry.  We use air abrasion on almost every procedure for all clients.  Air Abrasion is ideal for kids or clients who are fearful of shots and the drill.

 

Uses/Advantages of Air Abrasion

1)  Completely cleans the pits and grooves on teeth prior to placing a sealant.  This ensures no decay or decay-causing bacteria/debris is left within the tooth which could potentially cause the need for future, more invasive treatment.  The only way to predictably place preventative sealants.

2)  Proactively treat decay early to eliminate or diminish the need for the use of the drill or anesthetic.  If a cavity is discovered early, repairs are small and conservative with air abrasion.  The use of the drill unnecessarily removes healthy tooth structure in oder to access decay, and thru vibrations on the enamel, the drill damages the tooth structure surrounding the filling or cavity being treated.

3) Conditions all teeth that will have fillings or porcelain onlays bonded, this allows bonds to be extremely strong and long-lasting….mimicing the natural bonds within different layers a natural tooth.  A strong adhesion completely seals and protects teeth from bacteria……a leaky filling which could decay in the future, this a critical step for Biomimetic Dentistry procedures.

Advantages:

  1. Reduces need for anesthetic.

  2. More comfortable for clients: no vibrations, pressure, sound, or heat (all typical with the use of drills).

  3. Reduces risk of chipping/fractures/cracks in teeth (again common with the use of drills).

  4. Less Invasive, more precise = more healthy teeth remaining after procedures.

Uses:

  1. Removes Decay (replaces drill/ no anesthetic)

  2. Cleans grooves and pits on the teeth prior to sealant placement.  This procedure along with Laser cavity detection (diagnodent) ensures that no decay is under a new sealant.

  3. Cleans the surface of teeth that are going to have fillings, onlays (partial or conservative crown), or sealants bonded to them.

  4. Removal and repair of white fillings and sealants.

Safety:

Air abrasion is safe.  All procedures performed with air abrasion are done with eye protection, high speed suction, and a dental evacuator (“elephant trunk”).
