Do you see whole families?
Yes! We enjoy being able to accommodate all age ranges in one convenient office with a wide variety of different services. This helps our patients cut down on unnecessary travel time and also creates a stronger sense of comfort here at Wethersfield Dental Group for children and adults alike.
Is it true that a dentist can help treat my sleep apnea?
Absolutely, if they have the proper training. Dr. Phadnis is very passionate about the connections between a person’s oral health and the overall wellbeing of their entire body, and she enjoys helping patients improve their lives in ways that transcend just the teeth. By providing custom oral appliances that prevent airway blockage, she may be able to help you overcome mild to moderate sleep apnea symptoms and finally sleep soundly through the night.
Can you improve the way my smile looks?
We can! Our Wethersfield practice offers several cosmetic dentistry services that are specifically focused on improving the visual appearance of smiles, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, metal-free restorative work, etc. We want to help patients achieve the higher levels of self-confidence that they deserve in everyday life.
I want straighter teeth, but I DON’T want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
Invisalign® Clear Braces transform the traditional bracket-and-wire system into a much subtler and more aesthetically pleasing treatment process. Patients will wear a series of clear, customized aligners that each represent a different stage of their smile’s gradual movement and are fully removable when needed to allow for easy oral hygiene and an unhindered diet. If you’d like to learn more about whether this orthodontic option is right for you, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Phadnis today.
What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?
While every patient’s goals, budget, and personal preferences are different, our team is most likely to recommend dental implants as the premier reconstructive service. This modern service seamlessly replicates every part of the natural tooth, promoting better oral health while also providing durable function and top-tier aesthetics. Dr. Phadnis partners with some of the best periodontists and surgical specialists in the greater Wethersfield community to help her patients replenish their smiles successfully for life.
Do you take dental insurance?
Our practice is happy to accept virtually all PPO dental insurance plans, and we also offer a valuable in-office Discount Dental Plan for patients with no current coverage. Please visit our new patients page to learn more.
