Even if you brush and floss on a daily basis, you may still develop a cavity. In the event that you do, you will need a dental filling to keep it from further damaging your teeth. Fortunately, Wainright & Wassel DDS makes dental fillings easy and comfortable with Kinetic Cavity Preparation or KCP. Let’s take a closer look at what KCP is and how it works:

In the past, dentists would have to use drills to fill cavities. Thanks to KCP, those days are long gone and you can take care of your cavity without any drills, pain, or discomfort. KCP uses a very fine powder that gets carried to the tooth via a stream of air. When this happens, the decay gets gently sprayed away.

Since KCP technology significantly reduces heat and vibrations when compared to a traditional dental drill, it can be used with minimal to no anesthesia. In addition, it can be very beneficial to patients who would like a cosmetic procedure such as a veneer, inlay, or onlay.

While the dentists at Wainright & Wassel DDS will give you the education and preventative dental care you need to reduce your risk of cavities, we cannot guarantee that you won’t get one. Therefore, KCP is a huge asset to our office and can make you feel better about a dental filling if you do get a cavity.

You won’t have to listen to high-pitch drilling sounds or wait for anesthesia to kick in. KCP will allow you to relax and only remove the decayed portion of your tooth so that more of your healthy tooth structure can be preserved.
