Dental Services

From routine cleanings and fillings to bruxism devices, Southington Dentistry is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page. 

Teeth Whitening Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system will make your teeth whiter in less than 1.5 hours. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks. You can also consider a combination program of both systems for optimal, long-term results.

Emergency Dentistry If you have suffered a dental injury, call Southington Dentistry or come to our offices. We’ll be able to treat the pain, assess your injury and save your smile.

Drill-less Dentistry It's a new instrument that can be used as an alternative to the drill in many procedures. A microscopically fine powder is carried to the tooth by a stream of air, gently spraying away decay. In a simple sense, you cold say it works like a precise miniature sandblaster.

Dental Fillings: Composite Resin Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.

Dental Crowns You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (empressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal. 

Root Canals Root canals begin as an infection of the inner part, or pulp, of the tooth and can range from causing mild to severe levels of pain. When infection in the mouth can quickly spread and result in the loss of one or more teeth, finding treatment that is gentle and effective is imperative to provide patients with satisfying relief. At Southington Dentistry in Plantsville, CT, Drs. Neil Salesky and Michael Resiman can assist in restoring your smile to its utmost health and function with a gentle root canal procedure. Let yourself enjoy a pain-free life again by making an appointment to restore your teeth to their natural strength and beauty using our highly effective root canal therapy.

Porcelain Veneers Veneers, porcelain or plastic, are placed over the front teeth to change color shape of the teeth. Veneers are ideal for teeth that are too small, too big, or have uneven surfaces. It is very common for people to have imperfect teeth, either oddly shaped teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, teeth with small holes in them, or an inappropriate sized tooth or teeth that have an odd appearance.
 

Dental Implants Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Six Month Smiles Get the smile you've always wanted without traditional metal braces and in as little as six months. This orthodontic option is made for adults and can treat your cosmetic issues fast.

Sedation dentistry Does the thought of going to the dentist make you cringe with anxiety, reminding you why you’ve been delaying your visit to the dentist? Small dental problems or treatments such as recommended cleanings and fillings may seem like minor work at first, but preventive care put off too long can cause even your most minor dental problems to snowball into much bigger, less easy to treat health conditions. At Southington Dentistry, our oral sedation dentistry puts you in control of your dental health by easing your stress and creating a deep sense of calm, so you can get the care you need when you need it. Specially dosed and monitored to suit your medical health and level of comfort, our sedative treatment will help you discover a thorough sense of calm and relaxation during any appointment.

Wisdom Teeth Removal & Extractions Is it time to remove incoming wisdom teeth or prevent a crowded smile with a tooth extraction? As your local family dentist, we'll do everything we can to protect your smile. When a tooth needs to be removed due to decay or to protect your oral health, our process is gentle and promotes fast healing.

Contouring and Bonding Teeth reshaping is a cosmetically beautiful and cost effective solution for correcting uneven and chipped teeth that affect both your appearance and the alignment of your bite. Also known as bonding and contouring, these treatments are popularly used in restorative dentistry.

Gum Disease You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic). 

Scaling and Root Planing Scaling and root planing removes dental plaque and tartar that house bacteria which release toxins that cause inflammation to the gum tissue and surrounding bone. 

Dental Bridges Dental bridges are usually comprised of two or more crowns placed on teeth to literally bridge the gap with a false tooth, and they can last up to 15 years with proper oral hygiene. 

Mouthguards Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials. 

TMJ & Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) If your jaw aches or gets stuck when you open your mouth wide, you may have a jaw disorder. Dr. Salesky assesses temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and makes appropriate appliances, as well as recommends medication and palliative care.
