Air Abrasion

At NY Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry, Dr. Silver is always focused on providing patients with treatment options that are natural, conservative, and truly state-of-the-art. That’s why our team has traded out the typical drills and needles and turned to air abrasion instead! We can use this relatively new technology in several kinds of procedures, and there’s no pressure, heat, or unsettling vibrations for the patient to worry about.

Our Midtown office may recommend air abrasion when removing decay, cleaning the grooves and pits in teeth before placing a sealant, or when removing or repairing a white filling. The high powered, precise stream of air will clean away decay from the tooth surface. We can preserve the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure when using air abrasion, and the restorative bonds will be stronger as well, mimicking the ones that exist between the crucial layers of your natural tooth. The process is so comfortable that many patients don’t need anesthesia, and there’s less risk that the tooth will crack or fracture.

During your regular appointments at our Midtown location, Dr. Silver will be sure to let you know if he thinks you could benefit from air abrasion. Contact us today to schedule a visit!
