Micro Abrasion is just one of the new advanced technologies that James M. Schreiner, DDs uses at his Keller, TX, dental office.
What is micro abrasion?
Micro abrasion or air abrasion dentistry is one of the many specialties Keller dentist, Dr. James Schreiner, offers his patients to provide a comfortable and positive dental experience. In the past using a dental drill was the only way to remove decay from damaged teeth. Nowadays, updates in technology have given dentists another option, called micro abrasion.
Micro abrasion is a great alternative for any patient that may feel nervous using a traditional dental drill. Micro abrasion works just as well as a drill by exerting a powerful stream of tiny aluminum oxide particles from its tip, onto the tooth. Here at Dr. Schreiner’s office, this option is available for your comfort and convenience. Call and ask us about the air abrasion treatments we offer today.
DOES MICRO ABRASION HURT?
Before performing any filling, Dr. Schreiner numbs the affected area to keep patients comfortable throughout the process. This means whether you choose the drill or micro abrasion, you will not feel pain during use. The advantage of micro abrasion over a drill for some patients is that it is less intimidating because it is quieter and less invasive than a traditional drill.
