Digital technology has transformed the art of capturing X-rays simplifying the once-tedious process down to mere seconds. Our Glastonbury dentists utilize a small electronic sensor that immediately transfers the images to our computer system and allows for easy viewing revealing potentially serious issues like hidden decay, bone loss, improper tooth positioning, and developmental concerns.
In addition to being faster and more comfortable for our patients, digital X-rays are actually safer too – in fact, they reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%, and no hazardous chemicals are needed for the development process.
The traditional drill that’s used for many dental procedures has a reputation for striking fear into patients’ hearts, and it’s not hard to understand why – the noises and vibrations involved can be unpleasant. At our dental practice, Dr. Heim and Dr. Carroll have been using Waterlase MD technology for over 10 years now providing more comfortable and precise care for the benefit of his patients. In fact, the laser-powered water droplets immediately sterilize the treated area for less risk of later infection, and most patients don’t even require anesthesia. We rely on the power of laser dentistry for a variety of important procedures including:
- Cavity preparation and filling placement
- Gum recontouring
- Soft tissue procedures
Image-conscious adults may be surprised to learn that you don’t have to wear noticeable, metal braces to achieve a straighter smile – Invisalign can create impressive results in a much subtler fashion for patients from Wethersfield and beyond! The process itself is easy: our team will provide you with clear, customized aligners that are designed to be worn one a time. Patients simply need to follow the order and attend brief progress appointments with Dr. Carroll to ensure everything’s going smoothly. Treatment is usually complete in just 8-18 months!
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea occurs when a patient’s airway is partially or fully blocked during sleep, which can result daytime exhaustion, painful headaches, higher risks of car accidents, increased blood pressure, and more. If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition by your general doctor or a sleep specialist, Dr. Heim is eager to team up with your medical doctor and offer an oral appliance option for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
