Air abrasion is a simple, quick and comfortable procedure used to remove tooth decay. A drill-less technique, air abrasion uses a very fine powder sprayed through a small nozzle to gently remove decay and stains while leaving solid tooth intact. In this form of microdentistry, nothing touches the tooth except the powder.
The result, the smallest possible preparation in the tooth resulting in a much smaller filling and a much stronger tooth that will be less likely to break down in the future. This procedure is much faster than traditional techniques and it is very rare that anaesthetic is required.
