Did you know that the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends flossing daily and brushing twice each day? Many restorative dental procedures can easily be prevented through better oral hygiene practices, yet most Americans do not properly brush or floss their teeth. Don't take your oral health for granted. Include an appointment with cosmetic dentist Dr. Diette as part of your regimen for maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile.
While we do offer quality dental implants and bridges at our Connecticut practice, we prefer to see our patients preserve their natural teeth as long as possible by incorporating a regular regimen that involves daily brushing and flossing, and regular dental checkups.
The team at Darien Family Dental Care maintains an ongoing commitment to providing our patients with state-of-the-art dental treatment. Whether you seek restorative or cosmetic dentistry at our Darien office, you can be certain that we will provide the same high quality care using the best tools available.
The intraoral camera is a revolutionary breakthrough in dental diagnostics. It is a tiny video camera that moves within the mouth capturing images that can be transferred to a computer screen. This tiny device gives the doctor visual access to areas of the mouth that would otherwise be difficult to see. Data collected from the equipment provides a more accurate assessment of the mouth to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate treatment plan. Dr. Diette also uses the intraoral camera to enhance patient education by providing patients with a visual of proposed procedures.
When appropriate, nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is used at our dental facility to relax patients during their dental procedures. Nitrous oxide is used as a gentle form of sedation - patients are conscious, but in a light state of relaxation and unable to feel pain. Dental professionals trained in conscious sedation carefully monitor each patient receiving nitrous oxide at our practice.
Unlike traditional dental x-rays, reduced-radiation digital x-rays are safer and emit fewer harmful substances; therefore, patients are exposed to significantly lower levels of radiation. Another advantage of reduced-radiation digital x-rays is that images are produced immediately – there is no need to wait for images to be developed in a dark room full of environmentally hazardous chemicals. During this simple process, a sensor is inserted into the mouth and images are captured instantaneously. Reduced-radiation digital x-rays are more comfortable for the patient and produce high resolution, quality images.
