Whst is Air Abrasion

Posted on 10/10/2022 by Barbara Ketchum
Whst is Air AbrasionRetaining healthy tooth structure through the use of non-invasive treatment techniques is one of the main objectives of contemporary dentistry. Utilizing kinetic energy, air abrasion is a less intrusive, non-mechanical technique for tooth preparation that removes carious tooth structure. Without using heat, vibration, or sound, a powerful, narrow stream of moving aluminum oxide particles abrades the tooth surface. Cutting speed is influenced by pressure and proximity to the teeth. It is seen that early occlusal surface lesions can be found within your mouth and treated with the least amount of tooth preparation by using a magnifier and air abrasion. Our dentists are well equipped for these surgeries to relieve your pain and stress.

Significance of Air Abrasion

Benefits of air abrasion include lessened sensitivity and reduction in sound problems. The resulting cavities have more circular signs than cavity preparations done with pillars. The lifespan of implanted restorations is raised by not increasing the possibility of damage and the resulting internal stresses. Dust control, which is a challenging undertaking, calls for the employment of rubber dams, and masks for a person and maybe our therapist.

Is Air Abrasion Safe?

Air abrasion is safe. Prior to air abrasion, only safety goggles and the placement of a rubber dam or protective glue to neighboring teeth and gums are used to safeguard areas of the mouth that are not being treated as required. Suction also prevents particles from entering the lungs. This may be an especially appropriate option for kids who might be scared of the needle, the noise, or the vibration of a normal dental drill. However, other treatments, like preparing crowns and bridges, still require the use of a dental drill.
