When a tooth starts to decay, it is important to remove that decay and replace it with some sort of restoration, such as a filling. In most dental offices, dentists will use a drill to remove tooth decay. At AZ Dental, however, we strive to stay up-to-date on the latest dental technology. When you need tooth decay removed, we use air abrasion, which gently and effectively removes the decayed parts of your tooth with water and air. We invite you to learn more about how we use air abrasion in San Jose, California, to benefit your dental care by calling us at 408-295-1100 and scheduling an appointment with Drs. Aulakh, Patel, and Hashemi.
