Implant Dentistry

Our dental implants, a fusion of science and art, offer a superior solution for missing teeth. Composed of titanium, these implants function as secure anchors in the jaw, resembling and functioning like real teeth. Implants stand out as the preferred choice for tooth replacement, surpassing bridges and partial dentures. Dental implants preserve surrounding teeth, maintain jawbone health, and last 15–20 years, providing a reliable, natural-looking, and long-lasting solution. For those seeking the pinnacle of dental care, our single-tooth implants offer unmatched aesthetics, feel, and functionality, outperforming bridges and dentures by about 10 years while preserving oral health.

Oral / IV Sedation

Sedation enables dentists to induce a state of relaxation, effectively managing the fear and discomfort that patients may encounter during dental procedures. Various types of sedation are employed in dentistry, including local anesthesia, which is administered by our dentists, either through injections into tissue or topically to eliminate sensation in a specific area. While sedation is generally safe, it's crucial to consult with Dr. Wright to fully understand its mechanisms and expectations before the procedure.

An increasing number of orthodontists, oral surgeons, and dental specialists are adopting cutting-edge digital dental imaging technologies. These advanced technologies generate high-quality 3D (Cone beam computerized images) images of teeth, roots, jaws, and the skull, enabling dental professionals to detect potential issues often overlooked by traditional imaging methods. The benefits extend to patients as well, as these emit significantly less radiation compared to traditional dental X-rays.
