Northbrook Court Dental Associates Offers Drill-less Air Abrasion Dental Care

PRLog - Feb. 27, 2013 - NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- Northbrook, Illinois - Northbrook Court Dental Associates, a long time Northbrook dental clinic, has announced it now offers air abrasion, a new technique for removing tooth decay without the use of a drill.

“Because air abrasion produces significantly less heat, pressure, sound and vibration than a standard dental drill, patients experience much less discomfort,” says Dr. Michael Vold, D.D.S., J.D. “The technology can also be used without anesthetics.”

The air abrasion instrument works like a sandblaster. It uses compressed air or gas to emit a continuous stream of tiny particles made from silica, aluminum oxide or a baking soda mixture. When directed at the decaying part of the tooth, the particles quickly and efficiently strip away the decay. The decay is removed from the month with suctioning from a thin tube.

Some form of eye protection is usually necessary to prevent irritation. A rubber dam may also be needed to protect teeth that aren’t being treated.

Air abrasion is a safe and effective alternative to drilling. Not only does it minimize the possibility of fracturing or chipping a tooth, several areas of decay can be treated during one visit and a greater amount of healthy tooth tissue remains following the procedure. Air abrasion also keeps the mouth drier, which is beneficial for other procedures.

Air abrasion works extremely well when treating small cavities and to prepare teeth for composites. The technique can also be used to remove surface stains and tooth discolorations, repair cracks or chips, prepare a tooth surface for bonding or sealants, and to remove older restorations, crowns and bridges.

Compared to regular drills, the air abrasion is a good alternative for children, the elderly and patients who are nervous and fearful during dental procedures.
