ALL ROUTINE VISITS AND NON-ESSENTIAL TREATMENTS ARE SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19

The Mugford Center would like to provide an update to all of our valued patients with concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus.

Based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) that citizens self-isolate during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the state of Maryland recommendations and restrictions, the Mugford Center will be limiting hours of operation and treatment available.

We are dedicated to the well being of all our patients and will be available for emergency care for pain swelling and infection as well as for urgent care which requires timely treatment.

As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in “flattening the curve” by following sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.

Bearing this in mind, we are carefully screening all scheduled and necessary treatment. and only seeing patients for emergency or urgent care. We take seriously the need to be available for our patients to avoid unnecessary illness or injury as well as preventing burdening our hospitals and emergency rooms.

We will reschedule all canceled appointments in a timely manner upon returning to the office and appreciate your understanding under the current circumstances.

We will continue to closely monitor the latest information and recommendations to promote a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff. We plan to be available to provide safe and optimal care on this limited basis.

Our infection control procedures fully cover the COVID-19 virus, as they do all infectious diseases. We are taking extra precautions in screening our employees and patients, along with sterilizing the common areas of our office often.

We look forward to seeing you at your scheduled appointments. Please call the office if you have any questions or concerns, and we will be happy to address them.

Protecting you and your smile,
The Mugford Center

Surgical Microscope


Bleedding gums with pockets for surgical mircroscope.We have taken your dental care to the next level. Our team at The Mugford Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants know how important your time is, that you want quality care performed with precision and less time in the dental chair. Dr. Mugford and Dr. Sfondouris can treat your dental problems more efficiently with the use of a surgical dental microscope. A dental microscope is a benefit to every surgical procedure, enlarging and enhancing every procedure.

Dental work can be complicated. The oral cavity is small and dark, the space that we work in is small, teeth are small, as is their roots and the other details we work on. A surgical dental microscope is a great dental tool that allows us to see those areas that we need to see. With it, we can:
•  Prepare your tooth, and entire dental area, for surgery. Our goal is to eliminate any exposure to the surgical site of bacteria or damage to any surrounding portions.
•  To magnify the area needed and the surrounding area for closer inspection, magnification is typically in the range up to 10x, varying on need.
•  To provide increased lighting that we are able to direct where needed.
•  Improves the ability to detect and evaluate tooth or root fractures and abnormalities.
•  Allows for better inspection and fit of dental appliances and molds or impressions.
•  Allows for better inspection and fit of dental restorations including crowns, veneers, fillings and inlays or onlays
•  Provides a better view for contouring and reshaping soft tissues around teeth.


Placing Dental Implants

Surgical dental microscopes are a valuable tool in dentistry, it assists us in providing magnification and improved illumination that enhances our precision in placing dental implants.

Dental implants are increasingly growing in popularity, but having them placed correctly is key to their success. Implant posts are placed directly into your jawbone, where with time, they should bond with your bone. Once healed, we attach the designated dental appliance, either a crown, a bridge, a partial or a full denture, the strength of the post is vital to the success of the appliance. Optimal strength comes from correct, and precise, placement. Surgical tools such as a dental microscope enhance the likelihood of success.

Imaging

A benefit of a surgical dental microscope is the ability to take digital images while we work. Imaging allows for better communication with our patients. We can show you the work that has been done, along with the work that may still need to be done. These images can be shared with other members of your health care team as needed.

At The Mugford Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants, we believe in superior knowledge, an incredible staff, and the latest in dental technology. Part of our success is having the tools that enhance our abilities. David A. Mugford, DMD and Dr. Tassos Sfondouris, DDS, are happy to answer your questions about the surgical dental microscope.
