We are excited to be using a scanner in place of an impression. We have the latest CareStream scanner that allow us to make a 3D image of your teeth. The best part is that it is stored so if you need anything in the future, we have your scan. It can be used for crowns, veneers, bridges, orthodontics, etc. It's fast and very accurate.
CariVu is a caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to help in the identification of cavities and cracks. Using this technology allows us to find decay or cracks earlier than just using Xrays.
Curodont acts in areas of decalcification to help minerals, like calcium and fluoride, to penetrate the tooth structure and remineralize or reharden the affected tooth structure. It can work as quickly as a few weeks. It is applied in our office and then monitored for three to six months to ensure healing. Sometimes a second application is needed but the results are unbelievable!
Our office houses the DE Light laser--one of the first in this area. This feature allows for restorations and minor gingival reduction and recontouring without the use of anesthesia. Other procedures can also be performed with the use of anesthesia.
CariFree is our new way to prevent cavities before they start. With a simple questionnaire and a screening test we can determine your level of decay causing bacteria. It only takes one minute to determine if you have a low, moderate, or high risk of developing caries in the future. Easy to use treatment programs based on your bacteria level.
Our office only uses low radiation x-rays with the use of digital imaging. This type of use enables us to do away with environmentally hazardous materials and instant radiographs. Along with the intra-oral, we can take panoramic and cephalometric views which allow us to see the entire jaw with one x-ray. We can take ten digital images to equivalent one of the old fashion way.
Oral cancer kills one person every hour, 24 hours a day in the United States. With the newest technology of Velscope we can diagnose and treat oral cancer in the early stages. The Velscope emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity enabling immediately differentiation between normal and abnormal tissue. The Velscope in combination with a clinical exam is the new standard of care for oral cancer screening.
We are proud to bring Florida to Connecticut. Developed at the University of Florida, this new system allows for consistent and thorough periodontal probing. It allows us to measure and graph the health of your gingival tissue. During the exam you will hear the measured depths of your periodontal pockets to make you aware of the health of your mouth.
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you're wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move--little by little--towards the smile you have always wanted.
In addition to Invisalign, our office provides traditional orthodontic treatment. For children and adults we can use braces to achieve a beautiful smile from minor tooth movement with retainers to full mouth orthodontics.
Lumineers and Veneers
Get the smile that you always wanted instantly with veneers. With veneers you can correct gaps, stains, broken or chipped teeth and discolored teeth. This is also a great alternative to orthodontics. Veneers can be a painless visit with little or no tooth preparation.
