Chao Pinhole® Gum Therapy
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than half of all American adults suffer from some form of periodontal disease. In many cases, the disease goes untreated until the symptoms are severe. With this in mind, Dr. Moriarty went looking for a less invasive alternative to surgery and sutures. And, he found the Chao Pinhole Gum Therapy technique and became the first dentist in Pennsylvania to become a Certified Provider. Please give him a call to learn more or feel free to read additional information on the Chao Pinhole Surgery Technique.
According to some estimates, a majority of U.S. adults struggle with some form of gum disease, whether it’s the milder form known as gingivitis or the more advanced form known as periodontitis. Having healthy gums is the essential foundation to having a healthy mouth.
Why is treating gum disease so important? Because of the dramatic effect periodontal disease can have on your oral and overall health. Gum disease is not only the number one cause of adult tooth loss, it can also make patients more vulnerable to health problems like heart disease, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and pre-term birth.
At Mor Smiles, Dr. Moriarty is proud to offer personalized care for patients with deteriorated oral health because of periodontal disease. Maybe you just need help reversing a mild case of gingivitis, or maybe you need more advanced care with scaling and root planing. Our Lititz, PA dental team happily assesses your situation and makes a personalized recommendation.
In addition to offering personalized periodontal therapy, we’ll be happy to offer tips for improving your homecare routine. Regular brushing and flossing are two of the most important steps you can take to prevent gum disease from radically changing your health and wellbeing.
Call Mor Smiles today if you’d like to learn more about gum disease and how it can be treated.

For some patients, anxiety is a real obstacle when it comes to seeking essential dental care. Sometimes this anxiety can be traced back to a previous experience with a dentist, and sometimes it’s related to a patient’s sensitive gag reflex or inability to respond to local anesthesia. Whatever the cause, there’s a solution: sedation dentistry, it lets patients who struggle with anxiety receive care without any of the anxiety they normally experience.
Sedation dentistry isn't just for patients with anxiety. If you have trouble sitting comfortably for long periods of time, or you struggle with a neuromuscular condition that makes it difficult to hold your mouth open, sedation dentistry is also a great choice.
