Air Abrasion - Miracle Treatment


air_abrasion.pngA stream of air containing tiny particles is sprayed onto the tooth, breaking up decay and lifting away surface stains in the process.

Dr. Grafman can usually painlessly spray away small cavities, without using anesthesia or a drill.  The pressure from the spray also removes plaque and debris, enhancing the condition and whiteness of your tooth.  With skill and precision Dr Grafman can easily remove minor decay without the need for a drill or anesthetic in most cases.  Air Abrasion can also be used to repair and refinish older tooth-colored restorations instead of replacing them. 

A bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers.  This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths and do not want the expense of veneers.  Bondings can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained.

The bonding procedure is usually completed in one visit.  The first step is to remove the decayed or unsightly portion of the tooth.  The tooth is then etched with a liquid or gel and a bonding agent is then applied.  This will allow the composite resin to be placed in the prepared tooth.  The resin is then trimmed and polished, leaving you with a beautifully sculpted, natural-looking restoration.

Bonding DurabilityAlthough composite resins are cosmetically pleasing and easily placed, their durability is not as strong as other types of restorations.  These resins typically last from 4-7 years before they begin to chip and wear away.  When this happens, the restoration will need to be replaced.

Too Good To Be True?

You may be thinking, "No Needle, No Drill, this is too good to be true. How come every dentist in America isn't using Air Abrasion?" The reason is that air abrasion can only be used for a limited number of procedures, and its cost is relatively high.
