iTero® Element™ Digital Scanner – Impressionless Scanning
The iTero® Element™ makes it possible to create digital impressions for orthodontic procedures such as Invisalign®, crowns and implant procedures in just a couple of minutes, without the need for messy putties or the discomfort associated with other impression techniques.
The iTero scanner allows the dentist to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery quickly and without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag! The built-in simulator allows us create a simulation of what your teeth may look like in a straighter, corrected position so youcan see you how orthodontic treatment can improve your smile, before starting treatment!
Laser Dentistry offers you the opportunity to have a safe, anxiety free dental experience, without drills and scalpels, and in most cases, without anesthesia. The laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with in surgical and dental procedures. .
Laser Dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures – without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. The laser beam sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of infection or bleeding. Patients are also much more comfortable during and after treatment with laser therapy
DIAGNOdent is an advanced laser technology that helps us find tooth decay more accurately and reliably in its earliest stages, before it causes more widespread damage. We use it along with visual examination, dental explorers, and x-rays. DIAGNOdent helps us locate decay that’s hidden inside the tooth where visual examination, explorers, and x-rays can’t find it. The DIAGNOdent hand piece scans your teeth with harmless pulses of laser light. When the laser reaches decay under the surface of the tooth, the decay emits a fluorescent light. This fluorescent light bounces back to the sensor, and is translated into an audible signal and a digital readout. In general, the higher the number, the greater the amount of decay in the tooth.
Low Dose Digital X-Rays
Dental x-rays (Radiographs) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Digital Radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. This allows the doctors to get a much better view of your teeth and any potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software obtains a number of different views of your teeth to gain the best understanding of your situation and develop the most appropriate course of management.
Digital sensors are more responsive than film so that much less radiation is required to produce a digital image.

I had some cap work done by Dr. Binafard in Norwalk and I am very pleased. He was very professional about the way he did things, very prompt. I was very satisfied with the way my teeth look and I will be sure to go back and have any other work done in the future with the Doctor. Thank you very much!
I come to Dr. Binafard’s office. He’s a wonderful dentist, he’s very thorough, and he goes over your whole treatment plan with you. He lets you know exactly what is the cause, what is your outcome, and what needs to be done from there. If you have any type of question he’s there to answer it for you and its not like somebody else comes to talk to you, he’s the person that lets you know and he sits down with you. He’s very kind, he’s a wonderful dentist, I’ve done fillings, crowns, and I even had my wisdom teeth pulled here. I’ve had no problems with any of my fillings, they feel wonderful and no sensitivity at all. Also, with my crowns I’ve never had any problems with them either. The great thing about Dr. Binafard is that he is very, very careful with you and he understands if your scared or if you feel uncomfortable. He’s there and he’s very calm and patient with you, which is great. This office is a very family oriented office because I bring my children here and he’s great with them, its not like he shoves the parents out and puts the kids in. I see everything going on and he doesn’t do things that don’t need done. My kids love him because he’s a great dentist. He has specialists that come in as well so you don’t have to worry about going to a different office. I would recommend Dr. B to anybody. Once you meet him, you’ll understand. Thank you!
