General Dentistry with a Smile for the Whole Family

We’ve been dedicated to providing you with the most welcoming, comfortable family dentistry experience for years. We’ve always stood out as the leader in dental technology and procedure innovations, and we are at the forefront of “green” dental care. Our office works to conserve energy and water whenever possible, but we’ve invested in the future with renewable energy sources. We use solar panels to produce more than half of our electricity significantly reducing the amount of energy we consume. Our water, heating and air conditioning systems are maintained using three heat pumps that cycle water through wells. This process is known as geo thermal exchange. We are able to use the consistent ground temperature to heat and cool our office, and heat given off by the pumps is used to heat our water.

Additionally, Dr. Michalski commits hours each year to continuing education in numerous areas of general dentistry. Our office is committed to having pure air and reducing toxins so that you and your whole family know you can breathe easy. In everything we do, our practice goes above and beyond to give you the best care. Our website is no exception. Our 2015 website revamp looks great, and reflects our philosophy to offer our patients superior service by helping them meat their dental health care goals in their budget, on their schedule. Beyond the beauty of the new site, we’ve improved the function. Small changes can make a huge difference. We’ve added two links that will appear on every page: a link to request an appointment with us no matter what page you’re looking at, and the other link to the testimonials you’ve given so that new patients can learn more about what you’ve been telling us about our practice.

Restorative, Implant, Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry

Our general dentistry practice serves the whole family, and offers a full range of dental care options. Our restorative dentistry options to return your smile to its natural strength and beauty, are the best in the area. Dr. Michalski’s dedication to you means that he continues to learn about innovations that can give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We are proud to offer the Prettau Bridge. This restoration is a unique, implant supported bridge that will fully restore the form and function of your bite. We also offer numerous dental implants to meet all of your needs, and Dr. Michalski is truly an expert implantologist. He has earned fellowship and diplomat with the International Congress of Implantologists.

Cosmetic dentistry is still not recognized by the American Dental Association as a dental specialization, but that has stopped Dr. Michalski from honing his skills. He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and maintains the most up-to-date knowledge of cosmetic dentistry innovations and treatments. Check out our cosmetic service pages, or call today for more information about how we can help you achieve the picture-perfect smile of your dreams.

Sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry is growing in popularity. More than 50% of Americans suffer from some level of dental anxiety, and oral conscious sedation can help. Dr. Michalski offers safe, relaxing sedation for patients with anxiety, strong gag reflexes, those who need extensive dental work, and many other reasons. If you’re interested in finding out more about sedation dentistry, check out our site, and call Dr. Michalski for a consultation.

Tooth-Colored Fillings for a Naturally Beautiful Smile with Dr. Michalski

January 6, 2015

101475871For nearly 100 years, dental cavities were filled with an amalgam of metals, including silver, copper, tin, and mercury. While these amalgam fillings were effective at keeping further decay at bay, pioneers in the dental field felt that the formula could stand to improve. Today, we use composite resin to create tooth-colored fillings instead of unsightly metal amalgam fillings. With Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski as your trusted partner, you can achieve lasting oral health in a way that still looks and feels completely natural.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings vs. Amalgams

No one likes a mouth full of dark metal fillings; it’s a well-known fact that white, luminous teeth are the hallmarks of a healthy, attractive smile. If your smile falls victim to dental caries (cavities), you shouldn’t have to endure the appearance of shiny metal amalgams just to regain your oral health. With composite resin tooth-colored fillings, you can enjoy a healthy smile that looks beautiful and confident without any of the drawbacks of amalgam fillings.

The benefits of tooth-colored fillings go beyond the cosmetic. In fact, composite resin fillings are actually considered better for your teeth in general. This is because their placement requires less of your natural tooth to be removed in preparation. The resin actually forms a tighter seal with your enamel as well, preventing further decay following your filling procedure. In addition, tooth-colored fillings will not adversely react to changes in temperature like amalgams do, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that your restoration will remain intact for years to come without damaging your teeth.

A Natural Approach You Can Trust

At the office of Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski in Rocky Hill, CT, we believe that dentistry should align with nature as often as possible. That is why we take a genuinely “green” approach to our work, only offering treatments that utilize non-toxic materials like composite resin for dental fillings. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of tooth-colored fillings, contact us today. We can help you make an informed decision regarding your oral health, offering valuable advice and insight about a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions. Our state-of-the-art dental practice in Rocky Hill, CT is proud to serve families from throughout the surrounding communities, including those in Wethersfield, Newington, Berlin, Cromwell, Hartford, and beyond.
