Air Abrasion – Dental Fillings

Air Abrasion Cavity Fillings

Air Abrasion Cavity Fillings

No Drills. No Worries. Better Health.

It used to be that even just the sound of a mechanical drill in a dental office was enough to turn most patients white with fear and focused on the exit door! But thanks to spectacular advances in modern dental technology, drills are on their way out of the dental office! Dr. Blacher is excited to share air abrasion as a new, safer method of dental treatment that uses a stream of tiny particles and air aimed at the area of the cavity to literally blow the cavity away! There’s no more loud drilling or vibrations, and you won’t even need a needle. Air abrasion has quickly become a crowd favorite technique for patients to find easy relief from their cavities.

Why Air Abrasion?

Air abrasion is so successful, we’d love to share the benefits with you:

  • No need for an anesthetic injection (no needles!)
  • No loud or intimidating vibration
  • No uncomfortable hear from friction
  • Quiet device that can’t harm soft tissue
  • Removes less tooth than a traditional drill
  • Shorter treatment time in the chair.
  • Suitable even for children who may have anxiety
  • Does not create cracks like dentist’s drill

Unlike dentist’s drills, which may create tiny cracks in the tooth that can, over time, get bigger and require future crowns and root canals, air abrasion is very gentle and causes no cracks whatsoever! If you have been putting off going to the dentist because you’re worried about drills and needles, we understand. That is why we’re proud to be among the first to provide our patients with a gentle drill-less, needle-less experience to help each of our patients improve their health comfortably.
