Knowledgeable, State-of-the-Art Periodontics in Our Friendly Pittsburgh Practice
We have been leading providers of dental implants and periodontics since 1982. As a periodontal specialist, Dr. Bakuri has advanced training and experience in gum disease treatment and prevention, dental implant placement and gum recession treatment.
Experience and Training You Can Trust
We are well known in the Greater Pittsburgh dental community for our excellence in periodontal procedures and implant placement. We see patients not only from our community, North Hills and Pittsburgh, but also patients who travel substantial distances for advanced treatments and our non-surgical periodontal disease treatment.
Dr. Bakuri is uniquely trained in an interdisciplinary approach to periodontics, which takes into account all dental issues. This gives him the background to fully understand and resolve even the most challenging needs of a patient.
State-of-the-Art Dental Implant Treatment
Our office was one of the first to provide dental implant services in the Pittsburgh area, and we have been at the forefront of the latest implant technologies ever since. We use a state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner to take 3D X-rays. This allows Dr. Bakuri to view your teeth and jaw area in a 360-degree view. He then uses special software to plan the implant surgery ahead of time, making your surgery efficient and preventing any surprises.
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment With the Perioscope
We are one of the only practices in the Greater Pittsburgh area that can treat severe gum disease completely non-surgically using a special periodontal device called the Perioscope. This state-of-the-art periodontal treatment is non-invasive, and it is an effective alternative to traditional treatment of moderate and severe periodontitis.
Who Should Visit a Periodontist?
No referral is needed to visit our office.
Patients come to us directly for their gum and dental implant needs or are referred to us by their general dentist. We can help patients with moderate to severe gum disease and provide cosmetic gum treatment. We can also handle all manner of implant procedures, from replacing one tooth to a full mouth of teeth using implants.
Patients choose to come to us for our advanced knowledge, training and experience in our area of focus, as well as for the peace of mind it gives them.
Caring Treatment by Our Friendly and Attentive Doctors and Team
You’ll always get a warm, friendly welcome when you arrive at our office. We have a great staff of healthcare providers who genuinely care about our patients. Each patient’s concerns are important, and Dr. Bakuri and staff will always take the time to listen to you and to fully explain your treatment.
We are a well-trained, knowledgeable and cohesive team, and we get along great and enjoy our work. Nothing pleases us more than helping our patients recover their oral health and smile!
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
Dr. Bakuri will make sure that you are always comfortable and doing well, both during and after treatment. We use the latest technology to provide you with minimally invasive treatment, which reduces the amount of time in the chair and post-treatment discomfort.
We take all measures to ensure patients do not experience pain in our office.
Sedation is available for anxious patients and longer procedures.
Nationally Recognized Leaders in Preventive Treatment for Gum Disease
We are nationally recognized leaders in providing preventative gum disease care. Dr. Bakuri is frequently asked to lecture on the subject, and we also host other dentists and hygienists in our practice so they can observe our preventive techniques.
Preventive services are one of the keynotes of our practice. We believe the best treatment for our patients is no treatment if at all possible. All our gum disease programs begin with an in-depth evaluation of the extent of the gum disease, extensive education and a custom home care program to help combat the disease. Along with our effective, non-surgical treatment, this can often prevent gum disease from becoming more severe, avoiding bone loss and other repercussions.
