The main benefits of using the microabrasion
method for localized coating removal are its high precision and reduced time required.
Apart from the superficial lesion which was infiltrated after surface erosion with Icon etch (DMG, Germany), deep and mixed lesions were eventually treated with a combined use of an average of 10 cycles of microabrasion
followed by infiltration of the lesion using Icon (DMG, GER), during a 30-minute appointment to correct the aesthetic defect.
The use of microabrasion
to remove discolored enamel.
Degradation of material due to tribocorrosion may occur under a variety of wear mechanisms (erosion, abrasion, microabrasion
, fatigue, fretting, sliding wear, etc.) interacting with corrosion.
Bleaching and microabrasion
have been recommended for treating mild cases of fluorosis; however, in moderate to severe cases, bleaching and microabrasion
are either ineffective or may lead to only transient improvement , while composite restorations are prone to discoloration, chipping, and debonding.
Esthetic management of developmental enamel opacities in young permanent maxillary incisors with two microabrasion
techniques--a split mouth study.
On the basis of product type, the overall market has been segmented into topical products (sunscreens, moisturizers, keratolytic, retinoids, and hair removal creams), botulinum, dermal fillers, chemical peels, microabrasion
equipment, and equipment-based treatments such as laser resurfacing and ultrasounds.
Effects of microabrasion
on substance loss, surface roughness, and colorimetric changes on enamel in vitro.
(11) Other technique followed traditionally is the Enamel microabrasion
designed to improve the surface texture, remove the stains and recover remineralization.
