Needle-Free and Drill-Less Dentistry
Needle-Free & Drill-less Dentistry?
Using a technique called Air Abrasion, we can offer our patients an alternative to the dental drill with certain procedures, when appropriate. Using a special instrument, a fine stream of particles is aimed at the decayed portion of a tooth, eroding away the decay which is then suctioned away. And because air abrasion generates no heat, sound or vibration it often eliminates the need for a needle to freeze the area first.
