  • Dr. James R. Werkmeister

Treating Gum Disease, Gingivitis, and Periodontitis Since 1995.

Our practices are committed to providing quality, evidence –based periodontal care with a personal and caring touch. Both Dr. Werkmeister and Dr. Zavoral will take the time to address your individual needs and make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed. As specialty dentists, Dr. Werkmeister and Dr. Zavoral always have your best interests at heart and will ensure that your periodontal problem is evaluated and properly treated. Their scope of dental care includes treating all areas in the field of periodontics, including osseous surgery, soft tissue grafts, crown elongations, guided bone and tissue regeneration, and implant dentistry.

Chances are, your regular dentist has recommended that you see a periodontist because you have a serious problem with your teeth or gums. Over the years, Dr. Werkmeister and his staff have helped thousands of Pittsburgh-area patients. Periodontal disease is responsible for over 75% of all adult tooth loss in the United States. If you have been referred to our office because of a periodontal problem, it is likely that your periodontal infection should receive prompt attention. Additionaly, we specialize in dental implants.  Dental implants are the most natural form of tooth replacement. If you are considering a dental implant you are in good hands.
