Comprehensive Dental Services for the Whole Family
At the dental office of Denis A. Quagliariello, D.M.D., we provide our patients with a range of comprehensive dental services. Dr. Quagliariello has the skills and knowledge necessary to provide every patient with the care they need. With a warm and welcoming environment, our patients feel comfortable and can ask any questions they may have about their dental treatments.
Some of the services we offer include, but are not limited to:
Routine Dental Cleaning
It is suggested that patients should be seen for a dental cleaning and routine exam every 6 months or as recommended by Dr. Quagliariello. During the cleaning, plaque and calculus will be removed from your teeth leaving behind a bright and polished smile. X-rays may need to be taken to help detect possible cavities in between teeth that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Though your mouth may feel healthy and you may not have any symptoms, periodontal disease can progress without a patient knowing. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the supporting bones in your mouth. This is why early treatment and prevention is so important! Dr. Quagliariello and his staff will make sure you are receiving the highest quality of care that will assist in preventing periodontal disease from developing.
Works in two ways:
As a topical fluoride it helps to strengthen the patient’s teeth once they have erupted by getting into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, helping to make the teeth more resistant to decay. We gain topical fluoride by using fluoride containing dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and gels.
Systemic fluoride strengthens teeth that have erupted, and those that are still developing under the gums. Systemic fluoride is gained from most foods and our water supply. It is also available as a supplement in drop or gel form and can be prescribed by your dentist or physician. Usually, fluoride drops are recommended for infants, and tablets are best suited for children up through the teen years.
Dr. Quagliariello is happy to offer his patients the option of dental veneers. Veneers can drastically change your smile. Veneers are used to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Veneers can change alignment of teeth, close spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, provide uniform color, shape, and symmetry.
A veneer is a thin layer of lab processed porcelain that covers the fronts of a tooth’s surface. This is a treatment option that requires less tooth preparation then a tradition crown. Call us for more information!
Crowns and Bridges
Bridges can be utilized when tooth loss occurs due to gum disease, decay, or injury. The loss of the tooth can create greater problems for your dental health if it is not corrected. The teeth next to the missing tooth (or teeth) can begin to move and result in pain, discomfort, and can look unsightly. With bridges, Dr. Quagliariello will close any gaps in your mouth. The bridge looks and acts just like natural teeth, is permanently cemented, and helps to maintain the position of the rest of your teeth.
Endodontic Therapy (Root Canals)
When endodontic therapy is performed, your dentist will clean out the infected pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. Once the area has been disinfected, the canals of the tooth are filled with a special material to prevent from further infections, and help in the healing of the tooth. Sometimes a core build-up, bonded post, and crown are necessary for restoring a tooth to function.
It is important to replace missing teeth, because if left with spaces, your teeth can shift and cause a variety of other dental problems. Dr. Quagliariello has extensive experience in treatment planning and designing implant solutions that are custom tailored for each individual patient. When your dental implants are placed, your jaw will bond and attach to the implant making them very strong and functional.

Complete dentures are used to replace a person’s teeth when they are all missing. Removable dentures are designed to restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. They are crafted to fit your individual mouth comfortably and snugly. When in place, dentures can:
- Help restore your ability to eat and speak
- Replace your missing teeth
- Prevent facial sagging
- Improve the appearance of your smile
We can create and place your custom complete dentures in just a few visits. Your dentures will be made to look and feel like natural teeth so that you can feel confident every time you smile. We invite you to call our office today if you are missing teeth to learn more about the benefits of dentures.
Non-Surgical Gum Treatments
Signs of unhealthy periodontium (gum disease) include: gums that are red and bleed easily, persistent bad breath, gums that are pulled away from the tooth, loose teeth, and changes in the position or bite of the teeth. Any of these signs may mean something is wrong. With the proper care, however, it may be possible to return them to a healthy state. This is where appropriate gum treatments come in.
If you’re having a problem, come in and see us so we can take care of it right away. The treatment usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic, along with local antibiotic agents. If the gum disease gets too severe it may need to be treated through surgery or extraction. This is why it is important to get it treated at the first sign of a problem.
Dental emergencies can be very frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is generally required to alleviate pain and ensure the patient’s oral and overall health. If you’re dealing with a dental emergency, call us immediately at 610-692-3312 and we will schedule you in as soon as possible. Should you call during after hours, call our regular number and our voicemail will inform you of how to get in touch with us.
