Fortunately, there is a better alternative! Air abrasion is a rather recently refined technology that can replace and surpass the performance of traditional dental drills in many circumstances. This technology is used to remove tooth decay when you have a cavity. Once the decay has been removed, your tooth is ready for restoration with a composite resin filling. An air abrasion tool is like a miniature version of a sandblaster, but don’t be alarmed by that comparison. It’s actually a relatively delicate, precise, and gentle procedure – especially when compared to a drill. There are a few main components of air abrasion Compressed air or gas As the name implies, air or some other safe gas is…
