Drill-less Dentistry (Air Abrasion)
Air abrasion is the most high-tech, state-of-the-art system for replacing the drill. It's a gentle spray of an air and powder mix that removes tooth decay, generally with no need for an injection. Its technology eliminates the odors, noise, vibration, micro-cracks and, in most cases, the shot associated with the drill. For certain cavities, the air abrasion system allows the removal of decay without the need for a drill. Although it cannot be used for teeth needing extensive restoration, the air abrasion system is rapidly becoming more versatile, and is remarkably well suited for small to medium size cavities.
Once the decay is removed, a virtually invisible filling is placed to restore your tooth's original natural strength and beauty. It is often difficult, even for dentists, to see that you have ever had anything done.
