Air Abrasion

Posted on June 25th, 2013 by

Air abrasion is a technique to remove decay from a tooth without using a drill. The air abrasion hand piece blows a strong air stream of tiny aluminum oxide particles onto the tooth. It can also be used to repair chipped, worn, fractured or discolored teeth.
The procedure is virtually painless and does not generally require an anesthetic. It involves less heat, noise, vibration and sensitivity and is a shorter process than other traditional methods. It is not an alternative for every procedure, but is beneficial for children or others who may be afraid of the needle of a regular drill.
Following the procedure, you may be left with dusty debris particles in your mouth – these are harmless and easy to rinse. You may be required by your dentist to wear protective glasses and a rubber dam in your mouth to act as a barrier to these particles during your air abrasion procedure. If you have a deep cavity you may also experience some sensitivity.
At Art of Modern Dentistry, we make every effort to make you comfortable during an air abrasion procedure. If you are interested and would like to learn more, call us today!

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
