Filling cavities without freezing! When cavities are caught early and are not too deep, we can fully repair them with no freezing! This can be done with dental microabrasion or air abrasion. This technique uses high pressure particles to remove the decayed part of the tooth, leaving a fresh surface we can repair with a dental filling. Our patients absolutely love leaving the dentist after a filling with no numb lip or cheek!
Catching a cavity early enough to treat in this manner is a good reason to make sure you’re having regular checkups.
As a minimally invasive procedure, enamel microabrasion can also be used to treat stains or discolouration in teeth.
