In keeping with our committment to offering our patients the most current, proven technologies in their care, our office offers dental air-abrasion, a comfortable, painless alternative that can often be used to restore teeth in place of the dental drill. While every cavity is not a candidate for restoration through air-abrasion, if detected early, many lesions are. Dental air abrasion seldom requires use of a local anesthetic (numbing) and is a quick and comfortable way to eliminate tooth decay. This technique is especially appreciated by children and patients who suffer from anxiety related to dental treatment.
