Minimally Invasive Periodontal Therapy in King of Prussia, PA
SCRP w/ Diode Laser Decontamination
Scaling and root planing is the process of removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces with a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar. Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has led to more modern methods. In our practice, we use diode laser decontamination to perform cleanings with more efficiency and in less time. The use of lasers in scaling and root planing also can result in less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort compared to traditional deep cleaning tools and techniques.

Periodontal disease can be treated with Perio Protect, a unique treatment in which prescribed solutions are placed into a customized dental tray that is then placed into your mouth. These solutions help fight the bacteria in the infected areas of the gums and teeth, reaching areas a toothbrush or floss can’t reach.

Occlusal Adjustment is the scientific grinding and/or reshaping of the occluding surfaces of teeth to develop and improve upon their harmonious relationships between each other, their supporting structures, muscles of mastication, and temporomandibular joints (TMJ).
An Occlusal Guard is a bite guard used to treat Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD), Bruxism, or teeth clenching. The Occlusal Guard, worn day or night, keeps the upper and lower teeth from contacting each other during chewing and guides the lower jaw in a way that allows it to move and hinge comfortably. It also protects from excessive teeth grinding during the night.
Occlusal Guards help establish normal jaw function and greatly reduce muscle pain and tooth wear. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.
