L’utilizzo della abrasione ad aria è ben documentato nel corso degli ultimi 20 anni. Con le ultime soluzioni innovative tecnologiche create da Sandman Microdentistry è riconosciuto come il modo migliore di eseguire la Microodontoiatria. Qui di seguito sono menzionati alcuni dei numerosi studi effettuati e sotto un elenco di riferimento per l’ulteriore interesse. Qui di seguito gli studi stanno discutendo e dimostrando che l’abrasione ad aria Sandman è il metodo migliore per il trattamento minimamente invasivo a causa di seguente ragioni principali:

  • Meno invasiva, meno rimozione di smalto e dentina con risparmio di struttura dentale per consentire ai pazienti di mantenere i denti naturali piu tempo possibile nella loro vita
  • Impatto solo su punti di contatto sulla superficie del dente, senza riscaldamento, assenza di vibrazioni, etc meno irritazione della struttura nervosa nel trattamento di carie profonda consente al dentista di mantenere la vitalità polpare
  • Non c’è bisogno di scavare la struttura dentale in più per una forte otturazione a causa del effetto bonding molto forte tramite l’uso della abrasione ad aria Sandman

Study 1. Study from Leuven University



Studio1. Della Universita de Lovanio

Studio della Universita de Lovanio sulla forza di adesione utilizzando diversi metodi di trattamento sulla superficie del dente. La conclusione è chiara a favore dell’uso de l’abrasione ad aria dentale. Lo studio è in lingua belga, ma a pagina 11 + 12 c’è una figura chiara che mostra i risultati.

Minimally invasive dentistry concept is now an essential part of dental procedures. Many novel materials and techniques have now been developed that are in line with the MI(Minimal intervention) philosophy. One such technique is Air Abrasion. An attempt has been made in this article to cover all the aspects of air abrasion and to remove the misconceptions present about this technique.
