Air abrasion dentistry works by removing areas of debris without cutting – leaving the healthy tooth areas intact.
This no-drill dentistry technique takes a little longer, but it means you are less likely to require dental crowns or root canal procedures.
It’s also a great process for thoroughly cleaning teeth before having a dental sealant treatment, as no debris or decay will get sealed in place.
Another name for this is microabrasion. It’s a very gently process – and a painless dental procedure which requires no shot.
