Air Abrasion Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach
Our air abrasion instrument makes removing decay faster and more comfortable.
Air abrasion technology is ideal for Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach young adults and children as no anesthesia is required. Admittedly, this is for shallow decay and not deep cavities, however, or Solea CO2 laser is designed to remove deeper decay without the need of dental anesthesia.
Air Abrasion emits a steady stream of air, filled with millions of microscopic particles. As the air hits your tooth, it can remove areas of decay or reshape your tooth. The device is gentle and quiet. It does not generate any unpleasant vibrations, pressure, or heat.
Our Air Abrasion device is incredibly accurate as it will remove less of your healthy tooth structure. It is actually better for your tooth than a drill which can cause micro-fractures of the tooth’s enamel. Fillings done with Air Abrasion and a tooth colored composite filling material last longer than traditional fillings with a drill and the same filling material.
