Scottsdale Dentist Uses Innovative Air Abrasion to Treat Tooth Decay
November 24, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsNovember 24, 2015 - Scottsdale, AZ - Dr. Marcia Blazer is happy to announce that she can treat decay with an effective technique called air abrasion.
"The traditional way to treat tooth decay is with a drill, which for some patients can create unpleasant noises and smells," Dr. Blazer said. "Our air abrasion technique is a much less invasive way to treat a decayed tooth without creating sensory complications.
Air abrasion treatment involves the use of a small wand that sprays powder onto the tooth, to remove the decay. Once the decay has been removed, the tooth is bonded with an aesthetic tooth-colored filling, leaving patients with a seamless looking smile. Because anesthetic is generally not required, several cavities can be treated in a single visit. This eliminates the need for patients to make multiple visits to the Scottsdale dental office.
"One of the best things about air abrasion is that it makes it easier to remove decay while preserving as much natural tooth as possible," Dr. Blazer said. "It also cuts down on the risk of any further damage, like chipping or cracking."
Air abrasion is an excellent option for patients who have dental phobias or are afraid of needles. A proven method of decay removal, air abrasion offers a comfortable dental experience for those who would otherwise carry fear and anxiety with them into the operatory.
"It is such a quick and painless treatment, it's really good for anybody," she added. "We often even use it on children."
