Every dentist in Texas is licensed to perform all dental procedures. Most, however, choose to limit their practices to certain phases and will refer patients for their periodontal treatment.
Dr. Quamar: "Your dentist can give you a choice -- to have your necessary periodontal procedure performed at another location or in the convenient and familiar surroundings of his or her own office."
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation. Dr. Quamar has received extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. He is familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and is also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures. The periodontal treatments and procedures offered by Dr. Quamar include:
As with many areas of healthcare, periodontal procedures have dramatically improved over the last decade.
Dr. Quamar: "One of my primary goals is to provide you with the most comfortable, safe, and convenient care possible. Modern treatment techniques and the latest anesthetic methods -- both oral and IV -- keep anxiety and discomfort to an absolute minimum."
"An IV (conscious) sedation procedure, or 'twilight sleep,' is not a general anesthetic that requires large doses. In fact, in virtually all of my cases, patients have experienced no unpleasant awareness or memory of discomfort during their procedures."
Gentle treatment with respect and caring for each patient's total needs, both before and after surgery, is assured.
Dr. Quamar: "You may call me or your personal dentist after consultation and/or surgery. I will give you my direct number. Both your dentist and I will be available on a 24-hour basis to assist you with any questions or concerns."
