Air abrasion is a method that helps to make dental treatments more comfortable and gentle. Air abrasion uses a small instrument to blast a fine stream of air and particles onto the teeth to remove tooth decay without the use of a drill. Air abrasion allows for decay to be removed quickly and easily while leaving healthy tooth structure intact. Because air abrasion generates no heat, sound, pressure, or vibration, it is a gentle and comfortable procedure. In most cases, anesthesia is not needed for air abrasion because it is such a gentle treatment, making it ideal for children and those with dental anxiety. We are proud to offer air abrasion at Michael B. Hill DDS PC. We welcome you to call our dental office in Taylorsville, Utah today for more information on air abrasion and how our dentist, Dr. Hill, uses it at our office.
