Air abrasion is a technique that allows us to remove tooth decay without a drill. Using an instrument similar to a mini-sandblaster, Dr. Luong will spray away particles of decay on the tooth surface. The decay is then “suctioned” away.

Advantages of air abrasion include:

  • Generates no heat, sound, pressure, or vibration
  • Reduced need of anesthesia
  • More of the healthy tooth is left untouched
  • Reduced risk of tooth chipping
  • The dentist can treat multiple mouth sites in one visit
  • Fast, simple procedure

Air abrasion is a safe, effective way to remove surface decay from your teeth.  For more information or to schedule your air abrasion appointment today, please give our office a call.
