Saunders Family Dental, Ogden Utah


Air Abrasion


We offer air abrasion treatment to maintain natural tooth structure and often to minimize or eliminate the use of local anesthetic.


The air abrasion principle

Defined powder particles are accelerated into a focused air stream that gently polishes or abrades away tooth structure.
