Using Air Abrasion for a Painless Dental Visit

painless dentistryGoing to the dentist should be a rewarding way to protect your teeth and get the smile you deserve. However, dental fear can become a large roadblock for some people. This is often because they are afraid of dental procedures hurting their teeth and being painful. Thankfully, dentists all over the country have been developing new techniques to make dental work as comfortable as possible. Air abrasion is one of those techniques. Let’s explore what air abrasion is and its use in painless dentistry.

Importance of Painless Dentistry

Painless dentistry is any technique invented or used to replace another procedure that can be considered painful. Methods used in painless dentistry are anything from anesthesia, numbing gels, laser dentistry, or numbing injections. New procedures are rapidly developing to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. This is not only to increase patient satisfaction but to alleviate already existing dental anxieties. The use of sedation like nitrous oxide can also be considered painless dentistry.

What Is Air Abrasion?

Air abrasion is a method used to remove small cavities from the teeth. This method is entirely painless, and no anesthesia is required. This is helpful for people that don’t enjoy numbing effects or recovery time. Air abrasion uses no drills. This can be comforting to some people. Air abrasion uses water, powder, and air to shoot a fast stream to erode the cavity. Then the hole can be filled with tooth-colored resin to complete the procedure. While air abrasion can’t be used on larger cavities, it’s perfect for small and surface-level cavities.
