Air Abrasion at West End Dental, in Portland, ORMany people have a fear of dentistry, even for minor procedures. This can be usually traced to the anticipation of having a local anesthetic used. At West End Dental, we recognize these feelings and try to mitigate them as best we can. One measure we can take in certain situations is to repair some teeth without using the dental drill by using a process known as microabrasion.

What is Microabrasion?

Microabrasion is a process that utilizes compressed air and medical grade silica, instead of a drill, to prepare a tooth prior to placing a restoration,

What Is It Used For?

There are certain dental procedures that require the use of a local anesthetic and a drill, but there are some that don't. Microabrasion can be used as an alternative, and in some instances, requires no anesthetic. Microabrasion is primarily used to repair chipped front teeth and remove decay and old filling material in front teeth prior to placing a bonded restoration. It is also used to clean teeth off prior to placing dental sealants and bonding porcelain restorations. Sometimes, it can be used to remove small areas of decay on the biting surfaces of back teeth.

What are the Benefits?

The benefits of microabrasion, besides often not requiring the use of local anesthetic, include the reduced time necessary to accomplish placing a filling and the ability to remove less tooth structure compared to using a dental drill. Visit us today at West End Dental to see if you might be eligible for this gentle type of procedure, or call us at (503) 446-2957 to schedule an appointment.
