If you need to receive a dental filling, then you may want to ask Drs. Simonds, Gennaoui, and Schrameyer about using air abrasion technology. We offer this dental drill alternative at Ballwin Dental Care because it is not loud and it can more effectively remove decayed tissues from your teeth with an air stream and tiny particles. This tool is one of the modern conveniences we offer for the patients who visit our office. Call our dentists and team today if you would like to learn more about air abrasion in Ballwin, Missouri.
Air abrasion is a technique that allows us to remove tooth decay without a drill. Using an instrument similar to a mini-sandblaster, the dentist 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.
