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

Laser Gum Disease Treatment


Most cases of gum disease go untreated. Despite the dramatic negative health risks that are linked to gum disease, people who have it often go undiagnosed. It is linked to premature birth, heart disease, stroke and diabetes, so it is most definitely a condition that should be taken seriously and treated immediately. Until recently the only options available for the treatment of gum disease have been invasive and potentially painful. Fortunately, we here at The Mugford Center have made LANAP® (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) available to our clients!

LANAP® has made it much more enjoyable and easy for patients with gum disease to get the treatment they need. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that works using laser light to kill bacteria in the pockets of the gums leaving only healthy tissue intact. LANAP® has been approved by the FDA and has been researched thoroughly. We are very pleased with the results that this provides our patients and hold it in high regard for the treatment of gum disease.

LANAP® Procedure

laser dentistryTraditional gum disease treatment methods involve cutting or amputation of the gums. While these methods are generally effective, they are extremely invasive and often require a long recovery time. LANAP® uses a laser light in the deep pockets between the gum and tooth to remove and prevent the bacteria that causes periodontitis. The gums are left completely intact and are compressed against the tooth.

Benefits of LANAP®

The two greatest benefits of LANAP® treatment are the fast healing time and the low discomfort level that it provides. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure there is significantly less healing time needed. There is no cutting of tissue during the procedure so the patient feels very little discomfort.

Minimized downtime following the procedure is a great benefit that allows the patient to return to their normal schedule immediately. Saving teeth and gums and allowing bone regeneration to occur are huge benefits of this procedure. Our goal is always your safety and health. Tooth and bone loss due to gum disease are real risk factors for anyone who has gum disease, so we take it very seriously.

The LANAP® procedure can give you your oral health back, so please give us a call today at (410) 260-0790 to setup an appointment!
