Aqua and Air Abrasion in Hammond – Pain-Free Procedure for Healthy Teeth

Dental Air Abrasion Care – What You Need to Know

Air or aqua abrasion is a process to remove decay from a patient’s tooth without using a dental drill. The machine blows an air or water stream of tiny aluminum oxide particle out of its tip onto the tooth. This is a procedure that doesn’t require drilling used by dentists to remove early and small areas of tooth decay and perform other procedures as well.

How Does this Procedure Work?

An instrument that works like a little sandblaster is used to spray away the decay and a stream of particles is sprayed at the decayed or stained part of the tooth. The particles are made of baking soda, aluminum oxide, silica, and are driven toward the surface of the tooth by a compressed gas or air. The decay particles are then sucked or suctioned away through a thin tube.

Is It Safe?

Air or aqua abrasion is safe, but the only precautions needed here are protective eyewear to prevent the eye irritation from the spray. There’s also the use of a rubber dam to be taken into account or a protective resin applied near the teeth and gums to protect the areas of the mouth.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Air Abrasion

Since air abrasion is different from the traditional drilling method, you may want to speak with your dentist before resorting to this treatment.


  • Doesn’t require an anesthetic
  • Doesn’t produce heat, sound or vibration
  • Doesn’t remove or damage healthy tooth issue
  • There’s also the less risk of fracturing the enamel


  • The treatment can cause sensitivity
  • Cannot be used to repair or treat deep cavities

I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

Very pleasant visit... No wait time at all, they saw me right when my scheduled appointment was, and I was in and out of the office for a cleaning in less than a half hour total. Very professional!
