At Southington Dentistry, Drs. Neil Salesky and Michael Reisman convince adults and children that dentist visits are an opportunity to unwind. Many of their patients barely feel their services due to advances in oral sedation—a pill that induces a conscious state of relaxation—and drill-less dentistry, which employs air abrasion in place of intimidating tools during some filling procedures. Patients further relax with provided headphones and listen to music or watch television while the dentists, who prioritize gentleness and a cheery bedside manner, tend to their teeth. The dentists' caring nature even extends outside the office. As they address medical and cosmetic concerns, they simultaneously help animals in need—10% of all their hygiene profits go toward animal rescue groups and denture fittings for birds who hope to smile.
Rosenberg Orthodontics composes cockeyed cuspids into orderly oral arrangements with Invisalign technology. Patients wear a series of transparent aligners that, during a period of 6–15 months, nudge teeth into more comfortable, hygienic, and aesthetically pleasing positions. Skilled toothsmiths administer a preliminary exam, x-rays, and impressions, from which they forge a custom-fitted set of mouth armor. Unlike traditional braces, these molar molders are removable—facilitating easy eating and drinking—and nonmetallic, preventing electromagnet makeout sessions.
At Advanced Dental of New England, Dr. Michael Maroon and his staff banish skittishness in new patients with a relaxing atmosphere and meticulous patient care. During a dental exam, the doctor determines the health of teeth and mouth-dwelling gum goblins by performing a periodontal probing. After a thorough cleaning makes teeth as clean as an obsessive-compulsive whistle, Dr. Maroon snaps a flattering set of x-rays, allowing him to deliver a clean bill of health or discuss a future course of treatment.
General dentists, certified lab technicians, and specialists in areas from root canals to orthodontia work together on Columbia Dental’s diverse team. They safeguard smiles with a comprehensive array of services, placing special emphasis on disease prevention with rigorous exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. However, when disease strikes, the team can treat it in-house, tending to inflamed gums and eliminating chronic pain with root canals. The staff can also straighten crooked smiles with Invisalign treatments, which are more effective than constructing mouth guards from rulers. The office accommodates hectic schedules by staying open seven days a week, with evening appointments available.
West Main Dental caters to teeth teeth young and old. Kids as young as aged 5 are treated to sealants that protect against cavities and tooth decay. The dentist also creates custom mouth guards that protect smiles during contact sports such as football and thumb wrestling. Specialty dental services range from extractions and root canals to dentures and crowns.
James C Dow, DMD, specializes in whitening treatments, veneers, and implants, which can replace teeth wagered during poker games. He keeps abreast of the latest developments in dental technology, investigating mouths with an intraoral camera, soothing nerves with sedation before long or complex procedures, and taking digital x-rays that yield more detailed pictures of molars.
