What is Minimally Invasive Dentistry?

Minimally invasive dentistry (also known as micro dentistry) focuses on the prevention of oral health issues through lifestyle changes, remineralization, and minimizing dentist intervention and the need for dental work. When intervention is needed, I rely on using a variety of non-invasive procedures that leave your natural tooth structure intact, such as:

  • Flouride treatments to remineralize your teeth
  • Dental sealants to protect teeth from bacteria, acidity, plaque, and decay
  • Onlays and inlays, as opposed to crowns
  • Bite splints to address bruxism (teeth grinding) 
  • Air abrasion, as opposed to drilling
  • Laser therapy 

I opt for the least invasive treatments possible while concentrating on preventing issues that can lead to such treatments, such as cavities and gum disease. Minimally invasive dentistry techniques are gentle, making them an excellent option for Austin TX patients with dental anxiety or those who would rather avoid intrusive procedures. Recovery times are also generally shorter than what you’d experience with traditional dental techniques. 

Enjoy a Healthy Smile Without Invasive Techniques

Traditional dentistry can be very effective; however, there are times when invasive techniques can put your teeth at risk of future deterioration. By using non-invasive procedures, I can help you preserve your smile while leaving the structure of your natural teeth intact. It’s important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for minimally invasive dentistry; I’ll work with you to understand your dental health concerns and create a customized treatment plan that thoroughly addresses them.
