About

The Periodontics at University of Pittsburgh centers on a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment planning and patient care emphasizing collaboration with other treatment centers.

Overview

About Periodontics at University of Pittsburgh

The program's goal is to provide optimal outcomes for patients by initiating appropriate and varied treatment strategies. The full spectrum of currently available biological materials is used to ensure the regeneration of bone and soft tissue around teeth and in site development for implant placement. We routinely utilize CBCT and digital workflows to provide optimal diagnostics, planning and execution of routine and complicated cases. The program also offers a wide range of sedation services for medically compromised and anxious patients through our department and in concert with the department of anesthesiology.

Our program aims to continue developing basic and clinical research in dental implantology, novel bone regenerative technologies and the development of novel approaches to treat periodontal disease by modulating the immune system. We are working on new therapies to improve patient outcomes and bring clinical research into clinical practice with cutting-edge treatment modalities. Some of our ongoing projects include: development of periodontal therapies by regulating the immune response; development of novel magnesium-related materials for bone regeneration; and assessment of novel periodontal grafting material compared to the standard of care. All residents are encouraged to pursue research projects and have contributed to national and international meetings for organizations in their specialty.
