Drs. James McAraw; Matthew Cantner; I.L. Cantner, II and Craig Foisie with River Valley Periodontics & Implant Dentistry now offer dental restorations aided by CAD/CAM to patients in need of a periodontist in Old Saybrook, Waterford or Madison, CT. This cutting-edge technology makes the surgical process easier for doctors to perform and less painful for patients.

There are many reasons why individuals may need the help of a periodontist. In addition to providing periodontal disease treatments, Drs. McAraw, Cantner, Cantner II and Foisie also offer dental restorations that are performed with the help of computer-aided design and computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. CAD/CAM can help improve the surgical process by increasing the speed of prosthodontic design and providing accurate surgical guides that facilitate proper implant positioning. This highly advanced technology is based off of currently-utilized cone beam technology and makes it possible to fabricate surgical guides directly from a scan. The process is very fast and allows for the extremely accurate placement of dental implants and other restorations.

In many cases, CAD/CAM can significantly reduce surgery time from hours to mere minutes due to its high degree of accuracy. The technology allows surgical restoration procedures to be completed without the use of unsightly sutures or painful incisions. Additionally, procedures that would normally take hours can be shortened to minutes due to the speed and accuracy of CAD/CAM. Patients who receive surgical treatments that incorporate this technology can also expect faster healing times and reduced swelling and discomfort during and after their surgery.

Patients who are looking for a periodontist in Old Saybrook, Waterford or Madison, CT who can offer quick and minimally painful dental restorations with the help of CAD/CAM technology are invited to call River Valley Perio and schedule a consultation with Drs. McAraw, Cantner II, Cantner or Foisie.
