Oral Hygiene Care Meriden CT 06450The Ultimate in Patient Education
At all levels of care, be it routine cleanings or dental restorations, cosmetic enhancements or periodontal treatments, patients can have questions. Even when you don’t know what you want to ask, it’s important for you to be able to get answers. That’s why we utilize the CAESY patient information program. This system enables us to provide you with comprehensive information on every aspect of dental care, from your child’s first visit to their grandparents’ dentures and everything in between.

Athletic Mouth Guards Dentist Meriden CT 06450Avoid Dental Trauma in Sports
Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. We’ve found the fit of one-size-fits-all mouthguards sold in stores to be less than ideal. They can make proper breathing difficult while running during sports like soccer or basketball. That’s why we offer custom-made sports mouthguards that fit you or your child well, protect their teeth and the soft tissues of the mouth, and can be worn for any sport – football, soccer, hockey, baseball, basketball, and more!


Gum Disease Treatment Meriden CT 06450Painless Protection from Tooth Loss
Decay is – surprisingly to some people – not the main reason for tooth loss. In truth, periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the main culprit. Our office is pleased to offer ARESTIN™ to our patients. This powerful weapon against gum disease comes in powder form, containing microspheres that are so small they can’t be seen by the naked eye. These microspheres deliver a time-released antibiotic directly to the spaces between the gums and teeth, where the bacterial infection that causes gum disease festers. ARESTIN kills this bacteria, saving your teeth without pain!

Oral Cancer – Minimize Your Risk
It’s an often unknown statistic that oral cancer causes one American death every hour. For 40 years, this mortality rate hasn’t changed. But it’s not all bad news. Early detection means a 90% cure rate for oral cancer. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!

Dental Treatment X-Rays Meriden CT 06450Digital X-Rays Reduce Radiation by up to 75%
Our practice is very pleased to offer digital X-rays. Using this technology, we take images of your teeth with a digital sensor and download them directly into our computer, where they are immediately available. Our digital X-ray unit makes it possible to view your entire mouth, including the upper and lower jaws. These methods result in 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

The Highest Standards in Sterilization
At the Dental Group of Meriden-Wallingford, your safety is our highest priority. Therefore we take sterilization very seriously. We use a special unit called an autoclave to clean and sterilize all instruments between each use. An independent company regularly monitors the autoclave to ensure the highest level of safety and cleanliness. Our staff is trained to provide the highest level of compliance in sterilization. Your health is too important to us to take even the slightest risk.
