Healthy gums are essential to overall oral health because they serve as a foundation for your smile. When gum disease begins to spread, it compromises your whole-body health by increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. When left untreated, gum disease can even cause tooth loss.
At South Hills Dental Arts, we’re on a mission to keep your smile and overall health safe with periodontal care. Deep cleanings, scaling and root planing, and other advanced treatments are just a few of the many ways we can stop gum disease in its tracks and keep it from causing further issues.
If you are at risk for gum disease or have significant bone loss due to gum disease, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment. By crafting a comprehensive treatment plan, we’ll make sure to tackle the root cause and get you back on track to flourishing health.

If you feel stressed about going to the dentist, know that you are not alone. Plenty of people neglect treatment due to dental anxiety. We’re committed to changing the way Pittsburgh feels about “going to the dentist” by creating a soothing, safe space where you can trust your dentist and explore sedation options together.
When you stop by for your consultation, your dentist will spend time learning about your story and smile goals. If a past dental experience left you anxious, we want to know in order to make you feel as comfortable and safe as possible. After completing a comprehensive exam and outlining a tailored treatment plan, your dentist will recommend the best sedation options for you.
To ensure you receive the highest level of care, a board-certified anesthesiologist will administer IV sedation if you require a more complex procedure. No matter what, our team is right by your side to help you feel safe and comfortable during treatment.

When a damaged or decayed tooth is compromising the overall health of your smile, South Hills Dental Arts is here to help with cutting-edge techniques and compassionate care.
Endodontic treatments address the soft inner tissue of the tooth, known as the pulp, that has started to decay. By providing effective endodontic care, your overall oral health can be enhanced by preserving natural teeth, stopping the spread of infection, and relieving pain and discomfort. This can also prevent the need for more invasive treatments, such as extractions or dental implants.
- Guided bone regeneration (GBR)
- Socket preservation
- Sinus lift
- Ridge augmentation
