Your cosmetic dentist should also address your basic dental needs. Dr. Quigless provides general dentistry for his patients, allowing him to provide comprehensive, seamless dental care. By seeing a trained cosmetic and neuromuscular dentist for all of your dental needs, you can rest assured that all of your dental solutions will be approached with an eye for beauty and in the healthiest, most effective manner.
Regular, professional cleanings are a basic part of good dental health. Some restorations, such as dental bonding, need special care during your cleanings. Unnecessary strain on your mouth and jaw joint during a cleaning can worsen a painful Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.
Our hygienist is highly skilled in working with and maintaining cosmetic restorations, keeping them in good shape and beautiful. Working under the supervision of a neuromuscular dentist also means that our hygienist is gentle and knows how to provide cleanings without causing harm to your mouth and jaw.
DIAGNOdent for decay detection
DIAGNOdent is an advanced diagnostic tool that allows us to detect decay much earlier than older methods. X-Rays are not required, and the process is painless. We can detect very small areas of decay, and determine how serious they are. DIAGNOdent gives a score on the area of decay which helps us decide what level of treatment is needed at the time the decay is discovered. It takes out the guess work and can prevent unnecessary dental work for you now and in the future.
In addition to dental implants, Dr. Quigless offers traditional replacement options including:
As a Neuromuscular Dentist and using our advanced technology the replacements he creates for you will have a far superior fit and avoid the common problems associated with these devices such as:
- Difficulty speaking or chewing
- Damage to surrounding teeth
Dr. Quigless welcomes children to his practice. When you come in, you and your child can receive treatment in the same office visit.
For the most comprehensive care, your cosmetic dentist should also be your general dentist.
