Coronavirus Updates

Time to start thinking about “What’s next?” 

Hopefully we will be entering Phase 2 very soon and this will signify that less of the virus is around, but we still need to keep our guard up! Let me share with you exactly what we have done to protect us all.

One of the major improvements we have done is to install 4 Reme Halo air purification systems to protect the entire office. 

These units have the following features and benefits:
• Dual ionizers to reduce airborne particulates (dust, dander, pollen, mold spores)
• Kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
• REME® reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet.
• New zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces
• Unlike portable units that are limited to the room in which they are placed, the REME HALO® provides whole home and building purification.
• Easily integrated with your existing HVAC system. The unit doesn’t take away living space and operates silently.
• Two (2) quick release features for easy, no tool, cell replacement
• Incorporates an adjustable shroud around the REME® cell, which allows customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

It has the following applications:

• U.S. Military approved for mold reduction in field hospitals.
• U.S. and International Hospital approval for the fight against infectious diseases: 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA).
• Major U.S. city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism.
• Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the deadly SARS virus.
• Approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. Employed to reduce microbial contamination of food being processed.
• Cruise lines use it as a safety measure against Norwalk Virus outbreaks

The REME HALO® can be installed in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications where a ducted HVAC system exists. Here are some examples:

• Single family homes, apartments, condos
• In hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices
• Schools, daycare centers, colleges and universities
• Fitness centers, locker rooms, athletic facilities
• Office buildings
• Veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, kennels,
• Hotels, motels, and resorts.
• Food processing and manufacturing plants/facilities
• Restaurants, diners, and bars
And to review, some changes and protocols you will see when it is time for your next appointment:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • Other than when you are having dental treatment, wear a face mask at all times.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • We will take your temperature with a hands-free forehead thermometer.
  • Once seated in the dental chair, we will ask you to gargle with hydrogen peroxide.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines,  since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Please ask Elena or Bonnie for cups.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
Types of appointments we are now scheduling
  • Emergencies of any kind
  • Patients in which treatment may have been delayed, but could cause more damage by waiting any longer
  • Patients in the middle of treatment and any delay would cause more problems
  • Hygiene appointments for all patients that have active periodontal disease
  • Anybody that has had gum disease in the past, and could develop an emergent problem if a cleaning appointment  is postponed any further
  • As always just call if you have any questions on what can be done at this time

A Smile Makeover Can Address Multiple Cosmetic Concerns for Comprehensive Improvement

Dr. William Papadopoulos designs customized smile makeovers at his Brookline, MA, practice to enhance multiple aspects of your smile. By coordinating several cosmetic procedures to complement one another, he can help patients achieve the smile they have always wanted. A customized smile makeover plan can address a wide range of cosmetic imperfections, including discoloration, minor damage such as chips or cracks, slightly overlapped teeth, and more to deliver dramatic results. For patients who are located far from our office, we are happy to arrange transportation and lodgings for a smile makeover trip so that they can still get the treatment they need.

Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

If there are multiple flaws in your smile that you would like to address, a smile makeover may be an ideal treatment option for you. A smile makeover can address any combination of the following cosmetic imperfections to give you a whiter, straighter, more beautiful smile.

  • Extrinsic or intrinsic stains
  • Chips, cracks, and other minor damage
  • Misshapen or disproportionately sized teeth
  • Small gaps
  • Crowded, overlapped, or crooked teeth
  • "Gummy" smiles or an uneven gum line

Smile makeover candidates should be free of any other oral health problems such as gum disease or decay prior to cosmetic treatment.

Potential Smile Makeover Procedures

During a consultation, Dr. Papadopoulos will examine your teeth and gums and discuss your treatment goals and budget with you. Based on this information, he can recommend a combination of treatments to produce your desired results while staying within your budget. With our Digital Smile Design technology, he can design your smile and show you how you’ll look. Any two or more of the below treatments may be combined into a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan.

  • Teeth Whitening: This is often the first cosmetic procedure completed in a smile makeover so that other treatments such as porcelain veneers can be matched to your new, whiter smile. We offer both in-office and at-home treatments that can whiten your smile by several shades.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Made from thin shells of porcelain, veneers can be customized to match your natural or newly whitened smile. We offer traditional and minimal-prep veneers to reshape your teeth, close gaps, repair minor damage, conceal deep stains, and straighten slightly crooked teeth.
  • ClearCorrect™: This system uses clear aligners to correct minor orthodontic issues. If this treatment is necessary, it is typically the first completed in a smile makeover to prepare the teeth for additional procedures.
  • Gum Lifts: This procedure can reshape your gum line to improve proportion, make your teeth appear larger, and create a symmetrical gum line.
  • Dental Bonding: Bonding uses composite resin to treat many of the same flaws as porcelain veneers at a more affordable price.
  • Porcelain Inlays and Onlays: These restorations offer a durable and natural-looking solution to repair damaged teeth.
  • Porcelain Crowns: Strong and durable, porcelain crowns can repair a broken or severely damaged tooth without compromising the appearance of your smile.

Benefits of a Smile Makeover

Combining multiple cosmetic procedures into a comprehensive smile makeover can allow Dr. Papadopoulos to address your smile on the whole rather in separate pieces. Combining treatments can also reduce your overall costs, as some treatments may be able to be performed in a single appointment. A smile makeover can improve your alignment and the overall functionality of your smile while giving you a whiter, straighter, more uniform smile with fewer surface flaws.
