Air abrasion is a way we sometimes use to remove decay from teeth instead of a using a drill. Air abrasion is a safe, quiet, healthy and comfortable way to remove small areas of decay and retaining more of the healthy tooth.
During air abrasion treatment, your dentist in Tooting Medical Centre will blast away decay from the affected tooth by using compressed air.
During air abrasion, a fine stream of particles is aimed at the decayed portion of the tooth. Air abrasion is ideal for use in children and others who are fearful and have minimal decay.
