Dr. Jeffrey Solomon Does Pain-Free Dentistry Without The Drill
For many patients, the thought of going to the dentist evokes the whining sound of the dreaded drill and the sudden twinges of from when the dentist explores around a cavity. It is no wonder that an estimated 75 percent of adults fear the dentist. Dental air abrasion changes all of this.
Dental air abrasion is essentially a miniature Intra-oral sandblaster. It produces a stream of air and abrasive particles that efficiently remove tooth structure and tooth decay in a gentle, but very efficient, manner. It does the same job as the conventional drill without the side effects.
We use the PrepStart air abrasion system which has many advantages for both us, as your dentist, and you. It is silent, fast and cost effective. It does not produce “burning” odors, hand piece whine, vibration, pressure or heat. Multiple areas can be treated in a single visit and, most often, it can be used without any local anesthetics. Dental air abrasion can be used in virtually all the same processes that the traditional drill is used.
Procedures with our air abrasion system are simple and quick. It’s perfect for those of us who get a sense of anxiety every time we hear the dental drill spin up. Call us today if you would like to know more about how our PrepStart air abrasion system can accomplish your dental needs without the traditional dental experience.
