Periodontal care is an integral part of oral healthcare and, subsequently, overall healthcare. At Exton Dental Health Group & The Pennsylvania Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Jonathan Scharf works closely with patients to ensure that they understand the importance of gum care and are using proper cleaning techniques. If a patients does develop gum disease, we can use scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, and other techniques to help restore a patient's oral health.
Dental emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere, and refer to any situation where a patient is suffering from pain or has sustained trauma to their teeth. If you or a family member is experiencing a dental emergency, we can quickly offer pain relief using local anesthesia or nitrous oxide, and begin to address time-sensitive problems quickly. We will take every action we can to fit you in during office hours, and are available to answer questions after hours in case of an emergency.
Lasers are an innovative technology that have been safely used in dentistry for years. In many cases, the use of lasers can effectively minimize pain, and even eliminate a patient's need to have local anesthesia or other methods of sedation. Lasers quickly cauterize soft tissue, reducing bleeding and shortening healing time. They can improve a wide variety of procedures, including removing decay and cavities, and killing bacteria which is buried deep beneath the gum line.
