Air Abrasion


As part of our mission to do conservative dentistry and use state-of-the-art technology, we’re proud to offer you treatment with air abrasion at our Montclair office. Air abrasion is an special tool that helps to remove decay without using a dental drill. Also, because air abrasion technology doesn’t produce vibrations or heat, little to no anesthetic is needed.

What is Air Abrasion?

Air abrasion uses a high-pressure stream of aluminum oxide particles to remove decay. These particles bounce off the tooth’s surface, removing decayed tissue in the process. Did you know, treatment with air abrasion only takes a minute or two per tooth? Because of this, it’s often much quieter, faster, and more comfortable than using a drill.
