Hartford Magazine recommends Dr. Yanni as a top-area dentist, and both the doctor and her qualified staff strive to keep patients comfortable as they outfit them with corrective orthodontic devices. An initial exam—including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain—paves the way for a set of traditional braces, customized teeth sheaths, or Incognito braces designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of advanced 3-D computer graphics and the sorcerous incantations of old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists are trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye.
Going to the orthodontist can be an anxiety-filled experience, but it doesn't have to be. At Class One Orthodontic Associates, the friendly staff diminishes nerves by creating an environment where patients are set at ease from their first visit. They're involved in each step of their own treatment process, meeting with the orthodontist to thoroughly go over their plan before getting started. During their appointment, they receive digital x-rays, which can reduce radiation emissions by 90%. After getting their new braces, extenders, or Invisalign inserts, they return regularly for adjustments and depart with an orthodontic care package that contains bands and floss, but not flame decals for molars.
The multilingual staff at Dental Technology Center and 64 Highland Dental nurture healthy smiles and strong bites. To ensure a pleasant experience for their patients, they fill their exam rooms with comfortable chairs, cable TV, and relaxing music, which set the stage for meticulous cleanings. During visits, staffers give the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. You'll leave with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Comfort isn't usually the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the dentist, but Elite Dental Care’s leather dental chairs, equipped with heat and massage functions, aim to change that. This commitment to comfort and quality of service appears not only in the seating, but also throughout the practice—distilled water, used in place of tap water, reduces the risk of contamination, and the digital x-ray system releases 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and has only a 17.23% chance of giving someone superhuman strength.
