MicroDentistry is the philosophy and
practice of finding and treating decay as early as possible, of
removing as little tooth structure as possible, of making the
smallest possible restorations (fillings) and of assuring that those
restorations are esthetically pleasing and long lasting.
abrasion is a gentle spray of an air-and-powder mix that removes
tooth decay. By controlling the speed and the intensity of
both the powder and the air, the procedure is virtually
painless. Since a shot is not necessary in most cases, you
will not have numb or drooping lips after your dental
procedure. The art and science of dentistry have changed,
offering a no needle, no drill, no fear procedure for removing
decay. Since air abrasion is achieved by directing a thin
stream of abrasive powder at the area of tooth decay, your dentist
removes only minimal sections of tooth - only the decayed
area. Until now, all the dentist had to use was that noisy
drill. But it was so big - in comparison to a beam of powder -
that it removed a lot of healthy tooth structure. Perfect for
children. Most cavities that are detected can be treated
immediately, without a drill and without a needle.
Once Air Abrasion removes the decay, we will fill that
cavity with a nearly invisible, non-mercury filling, making the
entire tooth strong, long lasting and resistant to decay. It's
result is very attractive and looks like a brand new tooth.
