We know you take good care of your teeth and gums, but sometimes even the people who are most diligent about oral hygiene will experience a bit of tooth decay. If you’re dealing with a very small cavity, we can likely use air abrasion instead of drilling when we prepare you for a composite filling.
Air abrasion is a method of using high pressure air to smooth away small cracks, chips or cavities. Air abrasion is a much gentler process than standard drilling, often allowing you to skip the injections of anesthetic. This allows you to save time and money, not to mention a substantially larger portion of your healthy tooth enamel. Of course, if your teeth are very sensitive we can always use anesthetic at your request.
