Air Abrasion Dental Technology Requires Little or No Anesthesia
Can small cavities be detected early, and filled without anesthesia, with only the minimal removal of tooth material? Can routine dental procedures be performed without vibration or pressure causing discomfort to patients? Can the piercing sound of a dental drill become a thing of the past? Yes! This will all be possible in the future, in fact, this is all achievable and happening now with Air Abrasion Technology.
Air abrasion is a dental tool, which is used by dentists for many purposes. It resembles a bit to a mini-sandblaster, using compressed air or gas that can be precisely aimed with a fine stream of abrasive particles. The particles are small and high speed, effective to remove tiny bits of material in decayed portion of the tooth. The debris can be whisked away with the help of a suction tube.
Some uses of air abrasion tools are removing dental cavities, filling cavities with composite material, preparing teeth for bonding, veneering, removing stains, and some other procedures.
