  • “ About a year and a half ago, my retainer broke unexpectedly and my former dental group was not able to see me for a week to fix it. Unable to eat, I came to Middletown dental when they agreed to graciously help fix my retainer that day. They repaired it quickly, and I have been their patient ever since. Their hygienist Lori is warm, friendly, and gives the best cleaning! Their office staff is also very friendly and accommodating.”

  • “ Had some trepidation with the knowledge of a "new" dentist coming on board and taking over the practice. I can honestly say his knowledge is matched with his level of professionalism; his genuine kindness and candor is very refreshing. An excellent addition to an already amazing team!”

  • “ I've had the same dentist for years and was nervous to switch dentists, but Dr. Sukumar was extremely helpful and very friendly. He had a great sense of humor and explained in layman's terms exactly what's going with my teeth and what to expect. Everyone in his office is knowledgeable, efficient, and they get you in and out with ease! I would highly recommend this dentist and office!”

Some of the Services We Offer

What is the difference between a deep cleaning and a routine cleaning?

At Middletown Dental, routine cleanings are recommended for our patients every six months. This is also the time when Dr. Sukumar screens you for issues such as oral cancer, periodontal (gum) disease, and tooth decay. Our hygienist will also clean your teeth and remove the plaque that contributes to many of these conditions. Keeping up with your routine visits every six months helps to prevent many of the issues from happening in the first place.

A deep cleaning is recommended for someone who is suffering from gum disease. In the advanced stage of gum disease, known as periodontitis, patients will require a deep cleaning. This extensive cleaning, called scaling and root planing, reaches below the gum line to remove the plaque and tartar buildup that is causing an infection in your mouth.

During a deep cleaning, you will be numb to ensure that you don’t experience any discomfort. Dr. Conti, who is our periodontal specialist at Middletown Dental, will oversee this process and monitor your healing to ensure that your condition is being successfully managed.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for gum disease; however, with the help of your dental team and some additional cleanings throughout the year, you can successfully manage your condition and keep gum disease under control.
