Practicing Conservative Dentistry with Air Abrasion

As part of our dedication to both conservative dentistry and state-of-the-art care, we’re proud to offer treatment with air abrasion at our Bergenfield and Tappan offices. Air abrasion is an innovative tool that helps us remove decay without using a dental drill. Plus, because air abrasion doesn’t produce vibrations or heat, little to no anesthetic is required.

What Is Air Abrasion Treatment?

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. Treatment with air abrasion only takes a minute or two per tooth. As a result, it’s often quieter, faster, and more comfortable than treatment with a drill.

Call Washington Dental Associates or Smile More Dentistry to learn more about air abrasion or to schedule an appointment. We offer comprehensive treatment to patients from Bergenfield, Dumont, New Milford, Teaneck, Cresskill, Tenafly, and Tappan.
