If you ask dental patients in the Bloomington, Ellettsville, and Bedford area what they hate the most about dental visits, chances are that they’ll mention the drill. Just the sound of it is enough to make people cringe.
Many men and women in Bloomington, Indiana wonder if there will ever be an alternative to the dreaded dental drill. Guess what? Now there is!
Drill-less dentistry is also called air abrasion or microabrasion.
Air abrasion can be used for common dental care such as removing tooth decay or preparing tooth surfaces for sealants or bonding.
Air Abrasion Works a Bit Like Sandblasting
An air abrasion instrument works like a little sandblaster. It targets a fine stream of particles at the area that would typically be drilled. After the stream of particles strikes and removes the decay, the materials are suctioned out of the mouth.
