Dental Implants Your Smile Deserves a Second Chance
Restore function and aesthetics to your smile with dental implants. In addition to correcting missing teeth with custom implant-supported restorations, implants improve your oral health by preventing bone recession.
Thanks to advancements in dentistry and our state-of-the-art techniques, more patients than ever can qualify for implants. We happily accept financing through LendingClub® and CareCredit® to help you manage out-of-pocket costs.
Optimized Dental Implant Treatment
Dr. Sharp uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and plasma-rich fibrin (PRF) to reduce pain and expedite recovery after surgery. He separates concentrated growth factors from a small sample of your blood and inserts them into the surgical site, stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing complications.
We also use piezoelectric (ultrasonic) technology to enhance implant success. This minimally invasive technique uses ultrasonic vibrations to minimize soft tissue damage during bone grafts. Dr. Sharp also uses dental lasers that sterilize the surgical site and hasten recovery.
“Sharp Smile-in-a-Day” is a restorative treatment similar to the widely popular All-on-4® dental implants. You can have your remaining natural teeth extracted, implants placed, and a transitional denture attached, all in the same visit. That way, you'll never have to go without teeth.
Our dentist, Dr. Sharp, has placed more than 1,000 implants with a 98% success rate! We carefully plan each treatment to minimize complications.

We Ensure Your Comfort With Sedation Dentistry
Can Sedation Help Me?
Sedation helps many people overcome the obstacles standing in the way of a healthy, beautiful smile. You may be a candidate for oral conscious sedation if:
- You experience a sense of dread before your visits
- You need an extensive amount of dental work
- You struggle to stay still
- You have trouble getting numb from the local anesthetic
- You have a sensitive gag reflex
- You've had traumatic dental experiences in the past
Ask our dentist if sedation is right for you.
