What is Air Abrasion?

Air abrasion uses a stream of fine particles to gently remove decay and prepares your teeth for treatments without needing a drill.

This innovative method is not only used for tackling the early stages of decay but is also used in other dental procedures. It’s perfect for cleaning and removing stains, preparing teeth for composite fillings, and even for some types of cosmetic dentistry.

Air abrasion offers a more comfortable patient experience, especially for those a little anxious about dental visits. With its precision and minimal invasiveness, it preserves more of your healthy tooth, making it a preferred choice for both dentists and patients.

The Advantages & Disadvantages of Air Abrasion

Air abrasion blends comfort and efficiency and comes with a number of benefits. Before deciding this is the right treatment option for you, it’s good to have an understanding of the full picture:


  • Minimally invasive, preserving more healthy tooth structure.
  • There’s less discomfort and usually doesn’t need anaesthesia.
  • Allows for more precise removal of decay.
  • Great for anxious patients who worry about the intimidating noise of a drill.


  • Not suitable for deep cavities or for removing existing crowns and fillings.
  • Some patients may experience sensitivity to the air and particles.
  • Procedures may take longer than traditional methods for some treatments.

Dental Abrasion FAQs

  • Is air abrasion safe?
    Absolutely! Air abrasion is a very safe way to treat teeth. It works by blowing a fine powder onto the tooth to clean away decay or prepare it for other treatments, all without needing to drill. This method is gentle and avoids the heat and vibrations you might feel with traditional drilling. Plus, we take extra care to protect your eyes and make sure you don't breathe in any powder, making it a comfortable and safe choice for fixing teeth.
  • Am I eligible for air abrasion?
    Most likely, yes! Air abrasion is great for a lot of dental needs, especially if you have small cavities, need your teeth cleaned, or are getting ready for fillings or sealants. It's especially good if you're not a fan of drills or are a bit nervous about dental work because it's gentler. However, it might not be the best choice for deep cavities or if you need old crowns or fillings replaced. The best way to know for sure is to have a chat with your dentist - we can tell you if air abrasion is right for your specific dental situation.
