Now Offers LANAP to Hartford, CT, Residents

 

Dr. David Edelson now offers the LANAP® protocol, which is a minimally invasive laser gum surgery, to people who need treatment for gum disease in Hartford, CT. This procedure helps mitigate various health risks associated with gum disease, such as tooth and bone density loss, while providing patients with a low likelihood of adverse side effects.

 

Hartford, CT — People who suffer from gum disease in Hartford, CT, can now visit Dr. David Edelson for the LANAP® protocol, which is a less-invasive alternative to conventional gum surgery. This laser gum surgery effectively eliminates periodontal disease while posing a low risk of unwanted effects, such as bleeding, pain and infection. With this procedure, Dr. Edelson can help patients reduce their likelihood of suffering various health complications associated with gum disease, from gum recession to tooth and bone density loss.

 

Advanced gum disease can damage the teeth and the underlying bone, leading to tooth and bone density loss. Research also indicates that people with periodontal disease may have a greater risk of developing serious systemic health problems, including stroke, heart disease and certain cancers. The LANAP® protocol is highly effective at removing gum disease and reducing the likelihood of these outcomes. During the procedure, Dr. Edelson uses the FDA-cleared PerioLase® MVP-7™ to eliminate unhealthy tissue and bacteria. Then, Dr. Edelson uses an ultrasonic tool to clean away plaque deposited below the gumline. Dr. Edelson completes the laser gum surgery by compressing the gum tissue back against the teeth. This procedure removes 90 percent of inflamed tissue, and afterward, most patients can resume their regular routines within one day.

 

Compared to other methods of treatment, the LANAP® procedure offers a few unique benefits for people suffering from gum disease in Hartford, CT. The laser that Dr. Edelson uses, the PerioLase® MVP-7™, helps stimulate regeneration in the alveolar bone. This gives damaged teeth a better opportunity to attach to the bone, reducing the risk of tooth loss. The laser gum surgery procedure also lets Dr. Edelson exclusively target diseased tissue, since the wavelength of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ is transparent to healthy tissue. The preservation of healthy tissue benefits patients who have suffered severe gum recession in conjunction with gum disease. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ additionally has a sterilizing effect on the surgical site, creating a protective blood clot to help prevent infections.

 

Dr. Edelson encourages patients who believe they need treatment for gum disease in Hartford, CT, to schedule consultations. Inflammation, bleeding, tenderness and recession of the gums are all common indications that professional periodontal disease treatment may be needed. Patients can set up their appointments by calling Dr. Edelson’s practice office or visiting his website.

American Heart Month

0

 

Summary: During American Heart Month this February, David R. Edelson, DMD urges Plainville, CT residents to learn more about the link between periodontal and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Edelson treats gum disease with the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive laser gum surgery.

 

Plainville, CT –In honor of American Heart Month, Dr. David R. Edelson provides critical information on heart health and periodontal disease at his practice in Plainville, CT. Researchers have recently discovered that individuals who have gum disease are nearly twice as likely to also have coronary artery disease, according to the American Academy of Periodontology. The results of one study showed that common oral health problems such as cavities, missing teeth and gingivitis are just as good indicators of heart disease as cholesterol levels.

 

Bacteria and food acid create a sticky paste that adheres to the base of teeth. Good oral hygiene habits remove this substance, but if it is allowed to build up, it hardens on the roots of teeth, and the resulting irritation leads to infection. Individuals often do not notice any symptoms of the problem until the gums become red and tender. It is critical for people in Plainville, CT who are at this stage of periodontal disease to seek help from a dental professional. Bacteria from the infection are able to enter the bloodstream, and some researchers believe this is the source of the link between gum and heart disease.

 

Traditional surgery treatment for moderate to advanced gum disease involves scalpel surgery. The gums are pulled away from the teeth so a dentist can access the calculus on the roots. Dr. Edelson is one of the few dental professionals qualified to offer the LANAP® protocol as a less invasive alternative. He uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to target bacteria and infected tissue without damaging healthy tissue. Patients in Plainville, CT typically recover from this type of periodontal disease treatment quickly and fully.

 

American Heart Month supplies the perfect opportunity for learning more about the risks associated with gum disease and heart health. Exercise, a healthy diet and regular trips to the dentist are excellent ways to protect against the potentially fatal effects of heart disease. Dr. Edelson provides more information about the LANAP® protocol and other advanced dental procedures on his website.

Invisalign Holiday Special

30% off Invisalign year end special; 30 years in practice

 

Summary

Dr. David Edelson is celebrating 30 years in practice at his office inPlainville, CT, and is offering patients 30 percent off Invisalign® through the end of the year. Besides improving a patient’s smile, Invisalign® can help people with crowded, gapped or crooked teeth avoid serious oral health issues, such as premature tooth wear and periodontal disease.

 

Plainville, CT —Dr. David Edelson is now offering patients in Plainville, CT, 30 percent off Invisalign® treatments in celebration of 30 years in practice at the Plainville office. The special will be available from November 1 to December 31, 2014. With Invisalign®, Dr. Edelson can correct unevenly spaced or crooked teeth, which offers both aesthetic and health benefits for patients. Invisalign® also provides patients with a discreet, comfortable alternative to braces.

 

Many people may not realize that uneven tooth spacing ormisalignment can cause oral health problems. Incorrect alignment can result in unnecessary wear, chippingor other trauma to teeth. Tooth crowding can keep patients from effectively preventing plaque and tartar buildup, while excessive spacing can allow food to lodge between the teeth. Both issues can raise the risk of periodontal disease developing. Gum disease, in turn, can cause damage to the bone that supports the teeth, resulting eventually in bone density deterioration or tooth loss. Alarmingly, periodontal disease has also been linked to systemic health problems, such as heart disease. People who visit Dr. Edelson to have unusually spaced or crooked teeth corrected may enjoy long-term health benefits in addition to aesthetic improvements.

 

Dr. Edelson offers patients in Plainville, CT, an innovative alternative to braces with Invisalign®, a treatment that utilizes clear, customized aligner trays to correct the positioning or orientation of teeth. Unlike braces, the aligner trays can be removed for eating and oral hygiene routines, which increases convenience for patients and helps promote oral health.The custom aligner trays are replaced every two weeks with a slightly different set of trays, and every six to eight weeks, patients visit Dr. Edelson for a check-up. Many of Dr. Edelson’s patients only require one year of treatment to correct irregularly spaced or crooked teeth.

 

Dr. Edelson encourages patients who are interested in taking advantage of the limited-time special to schedule a consultation about receiving Invisalign® in Plainville, CT. Although many people are good candidates for the procedure, Invisalign® is not the ideal treatment for everyone. During a consultation, Dr. Edelson can determine whether Invisalign® is the best solution based on a patient’s oral health and other factors. Current and prospective patients are welcome to call Dr. Edelson’s office or visit his website to request an appointment.

Dental Hygiene Month LANAP®

 

dental office Plainville, CT; symptoms of gum disease

 

In honor of Dental Hygiene Month, Dr. David R. Edelson seeks to inform the public about the dangers of leaving the symptoms of gum disease untreated. Dr. Edelson offers a minimally invasive gum disease treatment option known as the LANAP® laser protocol through his dental office in Plainville, CT.

 

Plainville, CT – Dr. David R. Edelson seeks to raise awareness of the many symptoms of gum disease and the dangers of forgoing treatment in honor of October being Dental Hygiene Month. Through his dental office in Plainville, CT, Dr. Edelson offers a number of dental treatment options, including a minimally invasive periodontal disease treatment option known as the LANAP® laser protocol. Through the use of this procedure, Dr. Edelson is able to offer patients a means by which their gum disease can be treated without the use of a scalpel or sutures.

 

The LANAP® protocol is able to eliminate the symptoms of gum disease through the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which specifically targets only the harmful bacteria residing in the pockets of the gums. It is for this reason that gum disease can be treated in a manner that is minimally invasive, as the procedure is able to preserve the healthy gum tissue while also avoiding the need to use a scalpel or sutures. This reduces the recovery time necessary and also increases the patient’s level of comfort during the course of the procedure. The availability of this gum disease treatment through Dr. Edelson’s dental office in Plainville, CT is beneficial to patients seeking an option that is minimally invasive.

 

Gum disease is an increasingly common problem across the country, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that 47.1 percent of the adult population suffers from some level of this oral infection. The fact that a large percentage of those suffering from gum disease do not seek treatment is particularly troublesome, as there have been recent studies that indicate the presence of a link between periodontal disease and serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and preterm labor. Patients who are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease should therefore seek treatment as soon as possible.

 

Patients who are interested in learning more about the treatment options available through Dr. Edelson’s dental office in Plainville, CT should contact the office at their earliest convenience in order to schedule an appointment for a consultation. The doctor can then discuss available treatment options, which may include the LANAP® laser protocol.

September is Self-Improvement Month

Self-Improvement Month –Dental Implants
Plainville, CT dentist, tooth replacement

 

Plainville, CT dentist Dr. David R. Edelson encourages residents to seek information about how dental implants can help create healthier and happier smiles as well as guard against future oral health issues. With September as Self-Improvement Month, this can be a perfect time to consider tooth replacement as a way of promoting better self-confidence as well as the ability to eat and speak naturally.

 

Plainville, CT—September is Self-Improvement Month and Dr. David R. Edelson, a Plainville, CT dentist, wants area residents to know the benefits they can achieve by receiving dental implants when tooth replacement options are needed. Dental implants deliver an outstanding cosmetic appearance, natural tooth like functionality for both eating and speaking, and they stimulate jaw bone in the same way that teeth roots do which helps prevent the bone from eroding over time.

 

People can lose adult teeth for many reasons. These include trauma, decay, and advanced gum disease. Dental implants offer a truly optimal solution for tooth replacement for many people. From a cosmetic perspective, implants look the most natural of all prosthesis options, boosting patients’ self-esteem and confidence. Functionally, patients are able to eat any foods just as they could with natural teeth in place because the rooting into the jaw keeps implants stable at all times. Speech is also more natural and easier than when gaps are present. Areas in the mouth without teeth are more susceptible to decay or infection because food or other particles can become lodged in empty spaces. Furthermore, teeth tend to drift and shift into open spaces, which can result in misalignment and associated complications. All of these factors make implants a highly regarded method of tooth replacement.

 

As an experienced Plainville, CTdentist, Dr. Edelson also wants patients to understand the long term importance of tooth replacement. When teeth are in place, the roots deliver ongoing levels of stimulation to the jaw bone. This keeps the bone healthy and completely intact. After teeth are lost, if no implant takes its place, the jaw bone no longer receives this stimulation. With time, the bone erodes and the jaw can become misshapen and even sunken in. Speech, cosmetic appearance, and eating ability can all be negatively impacted. In this way, dental implants do become important steps in self-care for people wanting to preserve their longterm oral health and appearance.

 

Patients are encouraged to contact Plainville, CT dentist Dr. David R. Edelson this September to discuss how they can make this their Self-Improvement Month that results in lifelong benefits. Dr. Edelson works closely with each patient to make sure all procedures and benefits are understood to deliver the desired results.

CEREC CAD/CAM One-visit dental crowns

CEREC- Hartford

 

Dr. David R. Edelson, a leadingdentistin the Bristol,CT area,now offers the CEREC procedure for Bristol patients needing to restore broken, decayed, or damaged teeth. Using this procedure, he is able to create tooth colored fillings and crowns within his dental practicein just one visit.

 

Bristol, CT – While a traditional dental crown may take up to three weeks to fabricate and metal amalgam fillings may contain mercury or weaken teeth, Dr. David R. Edelson is a dentist in the Bristol,CT area now providing Bristol patientswith an alternative to these restorative options. CEREC restorationsproduce same day strong ceramic fillings and crowns that fit perfectly by using 3D computer generated models rather than messy, uncomfortableimpression trays.

 

Metal amalgam has historically been a popular choice of dentists when filling cavities and restoring teeth, primarily because it is affordable and very resistant to damage. Patients who dislike the dull gray color of the amalgam may opt for gold, which is stronger but expensive and lacks subtlety. When compared to amalgam or gold, composite resin blends naturally into teeth and would seem like the best choice if not for the lack of durability and the likelihood of staining.

 

In response to the inadequacy of these options, Dr. Edelson uses the CEREC procedure toprovide his patients with ceramic fillings. They provide a natural, stain resistant look that lasts longer than amalgams and resins and are more affordable than gold.CEREC was named for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics, words that describe this tooth restoration procedure.

 

This leadingdentistin the Bristol,CTareabegins by preparing the tooth for the filling or crown, then takes a picture, or optical impression, of the area. This picture is entered into a special software that produces a 3D model of the tooth. After choosing a block of ceramic that matches the shade of the surrounding teeth, Dr. Edelson sends the model to the milling machine located within the office, which creates a perfectly fitting tooth restoration from the ceramic in a few minutes. A patient can expect to leave the office with a new smile in just one short appointment.

 

The development of this procedure is timely, as millions of amalgam and resin fillings and porcelain crowns deteriorate and need replacement. Patients looking for a dentistin the Bristol,CTareawho offers the benefits of ceramic tooth restorations can find more information on Dr. Edelson’s website or by calling his office directly.

All on 4 dental implants

0

Dr. David R. Edelson, a dental implant dentist, now accepts patients who are seeking dental implants in Hartford, CT. This is especially beneficial to patients with low bone volume or density and those who wish to avoid traditional dentures, as Dr. Edelson offers a technique known as All-on-4™ implant supported dentures.

 

Hartford, CT – For patients who are seeking dental implants in Hartford, CT,Dr. David R. Edelson is an experienced implant dentistwho offers a procedure known as the All-on-4™ technique, among other effective procedures. This particular procedure is helpful to patients who have low bone density or volume, which is commonplace among patients who have had removable dentures or simply missing teeth for an extended period of time. The procedure not only makes it less likely that bone grafting will be necessary, but it also affords patients the immediate function of their dental implants.

 

Many patients with low bone volume or density may have experienced difficulty finding dental implants in Hartford, CT before Dr. Edelson began accepting patients from the area. With the availability of the All-on-4™ technique, Dr. Edelson is able to utilize the available bone by determining specific locations and angles for the implant. The procedure involves four implants: two located in the front of the mouth and two in the rear of the mouth. The back implants are put in place at an angle of 45 degrees, while the front implants are put in place at an angle of 90 degrees, affording patients the requisite pressure for biting down while not allowing the implants to be lifted out of the sockets. An existing or temporary denture is then attached, completing the procedure. Once the implants have fully integrated with the jaw bone, usually after about three to six months, the permanent denture can be placed.

 

Tooth loss is a very common issue in the United States, as nearly 70 percent of American adults have experienced some form of permanent tooth loss. As the population ages, tooth loss becomes even greater, as 26 percent of adults over the age of 74 has lost all of their permanent teeth. This widespread tooth loss only underscores the need for an implant dentist that can offer solutions which are immediately functional.

 

Patients who are in need of dental implants in Hartford, CT may wish to contact the office of Dr. Edelson in order to schedule an appointment. Dr. Edelson, an implant dentist who now accepts patients from the Hartford area, may need to discuss each individual patient’s eligibility for the procedure before moving forward with any treatment.

Cone Beam and Dental Implants

Cone beam – Dental Implants – Hartford

 

Dr. David Edelson offers dental implants in Hartford, CT to patients who have lost teeth due to decay, periodontal disease, or injury. By utilizing versatile and advanced cone beam imaging technology, Dr. Edelson is able to achieve better diagnostics and more precise dental implant placement than ever before.

 

Hartford, CT – Dr. David Edelson is pleased to offer dental implants to Hartford, CT residents who are in need of tooth replacement. Dr. Edelson uses cone beam collimated tomography in order to generate remarkably clear high definition x-ray images in 3D that guide him through the dental implant placement and diagnostic processes.

 

There are many reasons patients may request and dentists may recommend dental implants in Hartford, CT. Dental implant placement is often utilized to replace missing teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Implants are also frequently requested by patients who want an alternative to traditional removable dentures. When a patient receives implant supported dentures, three or more implants are placed within the jaw bone in order to give the dentures something to snap onto, providing greater stability. Implants can also be utilized to place a single missing tooth or several adjacent teeth, such as with an implant bridge.

 

Cone beam imaging systems make it much easier for Dr. Edelson to place implants as accurately as possible. The images are in high definition and provide a 3D view of the treatment area so that he can clearly diagnose the patient’s needs and recommend the most effective treatment options. If it is determined that dental implants are the best treatment option, cone beam imaging technology can then be used to guide him through the implant placement process by providing a panoramic image of the area that can be generated and displayed on a monitor within seconds.

 

Benefits of cone beam imaging include the ability to clearly visualize parts of a patient’s mouth that cannot be fully evaluated or diagnosed externally, and the ability to create more effective treatment plans. Cone beam imaging also produces much less radiation than traditional x-rays, and is a less expensive technology than a hospital CT scan.

 

Patients who are interested in receiving the most precise and effective dental implant placement possible are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Edelson’s Hartford office. With the help of cone beam imaging technology, Dr. Edelson is able to utilize the latest advancements in technology to assist him in placing dental implants in Hartford, CT.
