Dr. Miriam Ting
Dr. Ting and her team focus their practice on the following areas: treatment of periodontal disease, aesthetic periodontal surgery, mucogingival surgery, and dental implants.

Periodontal surgery can address many issues such as helping a person who suffers from unsightly, exposed or sensitive roots. It can also help those who have a “gummy” smile or “short” teeth. By fixing these problems, periodontal surgery can also help those who lack self-confidence because if left untreated, these issues may lead to decreased health and social issues.

In addition to these types of issues, Dr. Ting and her team can also restore a person’s smile and self-confidence with dental implants, a safe and long-lasting solution for many types of periodontal challenges. Dental implants have been around for a long time and provide a mostly painless solution that makes long-term financial sense for many patients.

There are many reasons why implants are a better solution than dental bridges or dentures. For example, implants do not disturb a patient’s surrounding teeth because the implants will fuse permanently to a person’s jaw bone to support an implant tooth. The advancements in dental implants have increased the success rate for patients receiving dental implants.

Through many years of study and ongoing educational advancements into the latest periodontal treatments, some of the specific services Dr. Ting offers her patients include:

Receding Gum Treatment

Receding gums are common and happen when the gum tissue pulls back enough to expose the roots of a person’s teeth. There are many possible causes such as poor oral care, overly aggressive brushing/flossing, a patient’s genetics, trauma, or an abnormal tooth position. Depending on the nature and severity of a receding gum issue, Dr. Ting has several options to address the problem. In some cases, a deep cleaning is known as scaling and root planing are used to remove bacteria, tartar, and any infections that may have set in. In other cases, lost gum tissue may be replaced through various kinds of gum surgery.

Gum Grafting (Soft Tissue Graft)

Gum grafting and soft tissue grafts are one of the primary treatments to counteract the effects of gum recession. Gum recession can affect one in every eight adults. If left untreated gum recession can lead to serious gum, tooth and jaw problems. Dr. Ting can perform several different types of gum and soft tissue grafts, depending on the nature of a gum recession. The most common of these is a connective-tissue graft which involves cutting a flap of skin at the roof of a patient’s mouth, followed by removing the tissue. The tissue is then sutured in place where the receding gum is occurring. Free gingival grafts are similar to connective tissue grafts but involve taking tissue directly from the roof of the mouth. Pedicle grafts remove tissue from the gum around the infected gum and tooth. There are also instances where Dr. Ting may use grafted tissue from a tissue bank, depending on the nature or severity of a receding gum problem. Dr Ting also uses the VISTA technique for gum grafting, which is a minimally invasive gum grafting procedure. It uses small incisions and minimally invasive tunneling procedures to graft the gum tissue. This results in faster healing, and minimal discomfort

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing are often used before a gum disease problem becomes too severe. The procedure is a deep cleaning between the gums and teeth of a patient, down to the roots, removing plaque and tartar to prevent further infection. Antibiotics are sometimes used to combat overly aggressive bacteria. Overall, scaling and root planing produces only minor discomfort. Some swelling may occur after the gums have been treated, but after a short period of healing the gums become pink and healthy again.

Laser Surgery (LANAP)

Periodontal Laser Surgery, also known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP is among the latest advancements in periodontal treatments. One of the best benefits of this FDA-approved PerioLase laser is that it does not require cutting or stitching to treat gum infection, meaning that the healing occurs more quickly and there is less risk of infection. In a LANAP procedure, Dr. Ting will use a PerioLase laser to selectively remove bacteria and diseased tissue from the pocket of a tooth and gum. The laser energy is absorbed by the bacteria which causes it to die. Ultrasonic scalers then use sound waves to break up hardened tartar from the surface of a tooth. Recovery occurs with minimal discomfort and patients heal in about 24 hours.


In cases of advanced gum disease, Dr. Ting may need to perform a gingivectomy. In cases of advanced gum disease, Dr. Ting may need to perform a gingivectomy. This procedure removes and reshapes lost and diseased gum tissue. The procedure also gets rid of pockets between the teeth and gums that have become hard to clean. Using a laser for this treatment, Dr. Ting will remove loose, infected, or damaged gum tissue. The precise nature of this procedure means that patients heal more quickly and experience less pain.

Crown Lengthening

Some people have teeth that they feel look too short. In reality, their teeth are the correct length and it is their gums that have creeped over the base of the teeth, producing a “gummy” smile. To improve this look, Dr. Ting can perform a crown lengthening procedure, by taking excess gum and bone tissue and reshaping it to expose more of a patient’s tooth or several teeth, creating a new gum line in the process. In other cases, when tooth structure is lost to decay or fracture, and a crown is needed to restore the tooth. The tooth may be too short to support a crown and a crown lengthening procedure is needed.

Sinus Augmentation

A successful dental implant procedure means having enough healthy and natural bone to support the implant. At times, there may not be enough natural bone on the top jaw of a patient’s mouth to facilitate this. In those cases, Dr. Ting will add bone to the sinus floor so that one or more implants can be placed. Bone regeneration in the sinus may take some time. It must be given enough time to fuse to the jaw to allow the best possible chance for an implant to be able to function in a healthy and normal way. Think Oral Implants and Periodontics serves patients in Paoli, Malvern, Berwyn and surrounding Pennsylvania communities.




As you go through life, there’s a good chance that for any number of reasons you could lose one or more of your teeth. Poor dental hygiene, an accident that injures your mouth or your jaw, or just normal decay or gum disease are all possible reasons why you may suffer the loss of one or more of your teeth. Dr. Ting and the team at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics can provide a safe and long-lasting solution in the form of a dental implant. A dental implant is an artificial tooth such as a crown or a bridge that is placed into your jaw and secured into place by implanting a titanium screw into your jaw.

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

When you’re trying to make a great first impression, one of the first things people notice is what a great smile you have, or in some cases, don’t have. Some aspects of your smile you have no control over, but in other cases, you can take steps to enhance your smile and also protect the health of your teeth and gums. If you suffer from unsightly, exposed or sensitive root surfaces or have a gummy smile you can elect to undergo cosmetic periodontal surgery.

Gum Grafting

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is also known as a gingival graft, and while it may sound like a bit of a daunting procedure, it is less intrusive than you might think. In many cases a gum grafting procedure may become necessary to protect a patient’s teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession. Gum recession occurs when the tissue that surrounds teeth pulls away, exposing too much of the tooth or the root of the tooth. This is a problem because too much exposure can cause damage to the supporting bone structure.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Disease

In some form or another, periodontal disease affects large numbers of Americans. Left untreated, it can range from a simple inflammation of the gums to much more serious problems that cause major damage to gums, teeth, and bones in the facial region. Dr. Ting and the staff at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics offer a wide range of treatments to combat periodontal disease, addressing the issues as effectively as possible to minimize long-term detrimental dental health impacts.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing

The best way to describe the benefits of a scaling and root planing procedure is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Scaling and root planing is one of the most effective ways to treat gum disease before it becomes severe. Severe gum disease requires more invasive and painful procedures to remedy the problem. In a scaling and root planing procedure, Dr. Ting will clean between the gums and teeth of a patient’s mouth down to the roots. In some cases, Dr. Ting will use an ultrasonic tool for the procedure which may be less uncomfortable than a standard scraping tool.

Laser Surgery, LANAP

Laser Surgery, LANAP

Advancements in periodontal treatment continue to improve experiences for patients in many ways. One of the most important of these is the use of laser surgery to treat a variety of gum disease conditions. The introduction of laser surgery is a modern approach to treating gum disease that allows periodontists to remove only diseased tissue without removing any surrounding healthy gum tissue. This non-surgical technique means that patients can get the best possible results without unnecessary pain or lengthy healing times.



A gingivectomy is generally performed where there is excess tissue and the underlying bone is not in the way. Dr. Ting will begin the procedure by numbing a patient’s mouth with a local anesthesia. This will be followed by using a laser to remove excess gum tissue or damaged gum tissue. The laser allows Dr. Ting to be precise. This precise application also promotes more rapid healing and reduced pain.

Soft Tissue Graft

Soft Tissue Graft

When the roots of teeth become exposed, or when hot or cold foods become uncomfortable to eat due heightened teeth and gum sensitivity, a person may be suffering from some form of gum recession. There are many options Dr. Ting can explore to help remedy this situation. One of the more common procedures is a soft tissue graft. Soft tissue grafting can address many types of gum issues, making it a versatile solution for all kinds of periodontal problems.

Crown Lengthening

Crown Lengthening

Some people feel that their teeth are too short, because they have a “gummy” smile where too much of the gum covers a person’s teeth. The teeth themselves may actually be the right length, but it is the gums that need to be corrected to improve a person’s smile. To improve this type of a look, Dr. Ting performs what is known as a crown lengthening procedure. This is accomplished by taking excess gum and bone tissue and reshaping it to expose more of a patient’s tooth.

Receding Gum Treatment

Receding Gum Treatment

Receding gums are a common problem that happens when gum tissue pulls back and exposes the roots of a person’s teeth. There are many possible causes of receding gums, and depending on the cause, Dr. Ting can provide an effective receding gum treatment to restore a patient’s dental health. There are many reasons why a person may experience receding gums, some of them due to poor persona habits, and others are simply due to factors beyond our control.

Sinus Augmentation

Sinus Augmentation

One of the keys to a successful dental implant procedure is having enough healthy and natural bone to support the implant. In some cases, there may not be enough natural bone due to gum disease, too development defects, trauma to the face or jaw, spaces left empty after teeth are removed, or other previous procedures where efforts were not made to restore a patient’s natural bone. When this is the case, bone can be augmented through procedures such as bone grafts, ridge expansions, and sinus augmentation.

Is a periodontist better than a dentist?

As periodontists, we specialize in diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants. While not inherently "better," our expertise is more targeted when it comes to gum and the foundation of the teeth. A general dentist tends to a broader range of oral health issues, similar to a family physician, whereas a periodontist is much like a specialist to whom you might be referred for a specific concern. In our practice at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we focus intensely on the health of your gums, the precise placement of dental implants, and ensuring the integrity of your oral architecture.

Should I go straight to a periodontist?

Deciding to visit a periodontist directly often depends on your unique oral health situation. For instance, if you've been informed by your dentist that you have gum disease, or if you're experiencing symptoms like bleeding gums, receding gums, or loose teeth, it's wise to seek the expertise of a periodontist. At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we often see patients who come directly for our specialized skills in addressing complex periodontal issues and for dental implants, as these require our specialized training and experience.

How much does periodontitis treatment cost?

Costs for treating periodontitis can vary widely, influenced by the severity of the disease and the type of treatment required. Some interventions are less invasive, like scaling and root planing, while others, such as laser gum surgery or regenerative procedures, might be more complex. At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we discuss the costs upfront after a detailed evaluation and provide personalized care plans. We believe in transparency and work with you to understand insurance benefits and payment options, ensuring financial clarity as part of our commitment to your care.

When should a patient be referred to a periodontist?

Referral to a periodontist is typically suggested when a dentist diagnoses a patient with periodontal disease or when there's a need for dental implant placement. Additionally, if there are signs of gum recession, complex cases of gingivitis, or any condition that affects the supporting structures of the teeth, a periodontist's skill set is crucial. At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we receive referrals for a range of issues, from bone loss associated with periodontal disease to sophisticated implant procedures. Dentists trust us for our specialized knowledge and the advanced technologies that we apply in our treatments.

What are the advantages of choosing a specialized periodontal practice over a general dentist for gum issues?

Choosing a specialized periodontal practice, such as ours at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, affords you access to focused expertise on gum health and dental implants. We are equipped with advanced diagnostic tools and are proficient in the latest periodontal techniques, ensuring you receive the highest standard of care. Our treatments are not only based on extensive research and experience but also on a foundation of personal attention to every patient's needs.

What are some common misconceptions about periodontal treatments?

One common misconception is that periodontal treatments are painful and invasive. However, with today's advancements, such as laser therapy and minimally invasive surgical techniques, treatments can be much more comfortable than in the past. Another myth is that lost teeth due to periodontal disease can't be replaced, whereas dental implants offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution. At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we frequently dispel these myths and provide reassurance through education and gentle, precise care.

Why is early intervention important in periodontal disease?

Early intervention in periodontal disease is crucial because it halts the progression of the disease, which can otherwise lead to tooth loss and affect overall health. By diagnosing and treating gum disease promptly, we can often manage it with less invasive treatments and prevent more serious complications. At our practice, we emphasize the importance of regular check-ups and timely action, as it can make a significant difference in the prognosis and complexity of treatment required.

What makes your practice, Periodontist West Chester PA, unique in the field of periodontology?

At Periodontist West Chester PA, our uniqueness lies in the combination of advanced periodontal techniques with a patient-first philosophy. Our leading periodontist, Dr. Miriam Ting, brings a wealth of knowledge and a compassionate approach to each case. Our practice is known for its commitment to minimally invasive procedures, cutting-edge technology, and most importantly, the personal stories of transformation and confidence that our patients experience.

How does Periodontist West Chester integrate technology into treatment?

Our integration of technology begins with comprehensive digital imaging for accurate diagnoses, followed by the precise execution of treatments such as laser gum surgery. We harness technological advancements not just for their efficiency, but for the comfort and reduced recovery time they afford our patients. At Periodontist West Chester, technology is a means to deliver top-tier care that aligns with our goal of effectiveness and compassion in treatment.

What is the role of dental implants in periodontal care?

Dental implants play a significant role in periodontal care by providing a stable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth due to periodontal disease. They are integral in maintaining oral function, preserving facial structure, and preventing bone loss. In our practice at Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we view implants as a key restorative option that can dramatically improve a patient's quality of life, and we're dedicated to the precise placement of implants for the best outcome.

How do Periodontics PA services differ from traditional dental care?

Periodontics PA services are distinctly focused on the health of your gums and the supporting structures of your teeth. This specialization is different from traditional dental care, which covers a broad spectrum of oral health concerns. Our periodontal services are tailored for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as the placement and maintenance of dental implants, addressing issues that general dentists may not be equipped to handle with the same level of expertise and technical precision.
