Air Abrasion
Air abrasion is a drill-less technique that is being used by the Western medical Center . It can be used in certain situations when a tooth has a small amount of decay. During air abrasion, an instrument that works like a mini sandblaster is used to spray away decay. A fine stream of aluminum oxide particles is aimed at the decayed portion of the tooth and are propelled toward the tooth surface by compressed air. Small particles of decay on the tooth surface are removed as the stream of particles strikes them. The particles of decay are then auctioned away. Air abrasion generates no heat, sound, pressure, or vibration.
The advantages of air abrasion over the traditional drill are as follows:
  1. Air abrasion reduces the need for anesthesia, particularly if the cavity is shallow.
  2. Air abrasion leaves much more of the healthy tooth tissue behind.
  3. Air abrasion leaves the working area relatively dry, which is an advantage during the placement of composite fillings.
  4. Air abrasion reduces the risk of micro fracturing and chipping of the tooth, which some experts believe can lead to premature restorative failures.
  5. Air abrasion allows the dentist to treat multiple sites in the mouth during a single visit.
  6. The procedure is relatively simple and quick
Digital X-Ray
Modern technology has changed the way we take dental radiographs at western medical center in Abu Dhabi . Digital radiology technology allows us to use computerized sensors rather than film to capture images of your teeth.
Intra Oral Camera
The intraoral camera is an excellent visual tool that allows the patient to see exactly what the dentist sees in their mouths. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this revolutionary diagnostic dental instrument eliminates any confusion between doctor and patient when communicating treatment options. Capturing images with the intraoral camera is painless and there is no radiation exposure risk as visible light is used to generate the photographs.
Digital Photography Services
High resolution color digital photographs are taken on every patient who desires an improvement in the esthetics of their smile. Images taken before treatment is started help the dentist and patient communicate their expectations of the end result of treatment. Photographs taken during treatment help communicate tooth color and shape to the dental laboratory. Photographs taken after treatment is rendered and compared to the initial photographs are a reminder of how advanced modern dentistry has come.
