At Dental Associates of CT, our general dentistry program goes well beyond routine cleanings and cavity prevention. We also educate our patients as to the most effective oral hygiene habits and the best dental practices and techniques available today. Most importantly, we encourage our patients to ask questions in order to become informed participants when it’s time to consider treatment options.
Restorative dentistry can provide patients with decayed teeth numerous benefits. The basic procedure involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth and then filling the cavity in the tooth with an appropriate filling material.
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. Sealants can help preserve a smile for a lifetime! Though dental sealants are not a cure-all in preventing tooth decay, they are cost-effective and helpful to patients – particularly children – in controlling decay in certain areas of the mouth.

Pediatric dentistry involves the treatment of children, and requires two to three years of additional training after dental school. This training focuses on the growth and development of children’s teeth, child psychology and management strategies, pediatric medicine and sedation and dental trauma treatment. Our pediatric dentists and staff at Dental Associates of CT are also fully prepared to care for children with handicaps or other special needs.
Our orthodontists are members of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) and the American Dental Association (ADA). They are uniquely qualified to work with our pediatric dentists as a team to ensure the most age-appropriate and best type of orthodontic treatment for your child.
Impacted teeth are teeth that remain embedded in the jaws past their normal eruption time or which have been blocked from their normal eruption path because of crowding of adjacent teeth or lack of enough jaw size to accommodate their eruption. The most common type of impacted tooth is the wisdom tooth or third molar.

Modern technology has made root canal treatment much easier for the patient allowing for shorter visits and better results. Most teeth can be treated in the office. Occasionally a patient may be referred to an Endodontist.
At Dental Associates, a periodontist is available at all four of our office locations in Danbury, Newtown, New Milford and Shelton. For your convenience, we even have evening and Saturday appointments. Our doctors and hygienists are attuned to recognizing periodontal problems early and to referring patients for treatment sooner rather than later. Such early intervention can play a big part in decreasing the extent of therapy.
Dental implants can provide numerous advantages, including the ability to prevent the patient from suffering from problems associated with missing teeth. Numerous problems can result when a tooth is lost and it is not replaced, including digestion difficulties, problems in chewing food properly, sores in the mouth and much more.
When a tooth is lost and not replaced, the neighboring and opposing teeth shift in position which can lead to periodontal disease, increased potential for decay, and premature tooth loss. Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, bridges, dentures or a combination of these treatment options. All are constructed of materials that combine the ultimate in function and esthetics, for the optimum in long-lasting dental health and an attractive, natural looking smile.
