Wright Perio & Implants
The “Wright” Choice for a Healthy Smile

Periodontics & Prosthodontics in South Orange County, CA

Welcome to the practice of Dr. Raymond Wright, Jr. We are devoted to treating all stages of periodontal disease and placing dental prosthetics, including dental implants. Our approach to oral health focuses on minimally invasive treatment using the latest science-based technologies and procedures to give our patients beautiful, healthy results with every smile.

How Oral Health Affects Total Body Wellness

The mouth, including teeth and gums, is the gateway to the rest of the body. When teeth and gums are not healthy, it affects the whole body. Infection can quickly spread from gums into the bloodstream, negatively impacting the heart, lungs, and other organs.

At Wright Perio & Implants, we strive to repair or restore your smile to radiant health using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. If your teeth or gums are too damaged to be saved, dental implants can replace the damaged teeth and give you a beautiful, functional smile that looks and feels natural.

Beautiful Smiles Made Here

Our first priority is a healthy, disease-free smile, but we never forget that our patients also want to look their best. We offer various cosmetic dentistry procedures to enhance the beauty of the teeth and gums, including gum bleaching and crown lengthening. Gum bleaching, or gum depigmentation, is an innovative process counteracting dark pigmentation of the gums caused by some medications, smoking, or genetics. Laser technology removes the top layer of pigmented skin, revealing a healthier, pink layer of gum tissue beneath it.

Know These Surprising Signs of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because the symptoms can mimic other illnesses. It frequently goes undiagnosed for years, leading to infection and tooth loss. If you have any of the following symptoms that cannot be attributed to a cold or the flu, you may be suffering from periodontal disease:

Influenza-Like Symptoms

Many individuals with symptoms such as a headache, sore throat, low-grade fever, congestion, and sore throat may have a dental abscess on their gums that must be treated as soon as possible. If ignored, infection can spread and destroy the surrounding jawbone.

Fever, Chills, and Bleeding Gums

Gum disease starts as gingivitis, which often causes swollen gums. As it progresses, it can lead to a fever, chills, and bleeding gums. When caught early, gingivitis can often be treated successfully using minimally invasive procedures. However, if left too long without treatment, damage from periodontal disease may be irreversible.

Recurring Sinus Infections

Individuals who repeatedly cycle through sinus infections may discover that the issue is gum disease, not their nose. An infection in the upper jawbone caused by gum disease can spread into the sinus cavities, causing a sinus infection. If periodontal disease is not treated at the same time as the sinus infection, the infection will return.
