Air Abrasion Cairns

We provide “no needle, no drill” dentistry thanks to the Air Abrasion technique

Air Abrasion produces a far superior tooth surface, which increases the strength of the bond between white fillings and existing tooth structure. Air Abrasion is much better for your teeth than drilling, as it removes the risk of microfractures that are inherent in the use of the drill. This is virtually free of discomfort, relying on a fine beam of air and abrasive powder and water to remove decayed tooth structure. In 80% of cases, our dentists can perform cavity preparation without the need for a local anaesthetic injection.

We use Air Abrasion in conjunction with The Klean-Air Filtration unit to trap the aerosol created by the preparation of tooth structure resulting in a clean safe working environment for both you as the patient and our dental staff. This means multiple areas of the mouth can be repaired in just one visit. It is highly precise and accurate, just like the Waterlase Laser, and can be used for minimally invasive procedures conserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible.

Fissure sealing

The long-accepted preventive treatment of fissure sealing deep pits and fissures is done most effectively using Air Abrasion resulting in permanently “immunising” those tooth surfaces from decay. This is, in fact, the only guaranteed way of effectively sealing fissures and grooves in the chewing surfaces of teeth.

Without this conservative way of eliminating early decay from these teeth, the traditional old ways of fissure sealing teeth are likely to just seal in decay and only slow its progress while actually hiding its presence. We would not fissure seal any tooth without Air Abrasion.


What is air abrasion?

Air abrasion is a form of dentistry that requires no needles or drilling. The technique is highly precise and can be used to perform a range of minimally invasive procedures. It is virtually free from discomfort as it makes use of a fine beam of air, abrasive powder and water to remove decay from the structure of the teeth.
