Air abrasion is a minimally invasive, noiseless and heatless alternative to drilling to remove delay for tooth fillings. This can be likened to sandblasting, where tiny particles are propelled to remove small areas of decay and then a filling is then applied to the tooth.
This usually does require anesthesia, so Dr. Yang can treat several teeth in one appointment. Air abrasion identifies and removes early areas of decay, such that more of the natural tooth is preserved. Functionality and tooth strength are restored combining air abrasion and composite resin fillings.
