From your very first appointment at Thrive Dental & Orthodontics, our team wants it to be clear that this is the ideal oral healthcare home for patients of all ages. We are fully dedicated to addressing you and your loved ones’ needs with warmth, skill, and plenty of attention to detail, resulting in outstanding improvements.
Every confident smile needs a strong foundation of preventive care. Our doctors will be happy to help you avoid common dental problems through comprehensive checkups, cleanings, and other likeminded services. If it’s been more than six months since your last visit to the dentist’s office, please don’t hesitate to contact us in Frisco, TX.
Both children and adults should plan to undergo a diagnostic checkup and professional cleaning twice each year, or once every six months. This ongoing care is important because many dental problems can develop in subtle ways that untrained eyes won’t notice right away. By giving our dentists a chance to inspect your oral health at regular intervals, we can keep any concerns to a minimum. Additionally, a session with our talented hygienist will get rid of decay-causing plaque and bacteria and leave the teeth feeling nicely polished.
Your back teeth (the premolars and molars) contain deep grooves and pits in their chewing surfaces that are dangerously vulnerable to decay over time. This is become food particles can easily become trapped there and stay in place, especially for young children who may still be leaning how to brush and floss properly. If this is the case for your family, our dentists may recommend the placement of dental sealants. This simple and painless service only takes a single appointment! The sealant is painted into place over the tooth and hardened so that it works like a barrier, blocking out infectious bacteria.
Are you and your loved ones drinking tap water on a regular basis? If you prefer bottled water, you may be missing out on the valuable oral health benefits of fluoride. This natural mineral has been shown through years and years of dedicated research to positively influence smiles, leading to stronger tooth enamel and fewer instances of cavities in children. At Thrive Dental & Orthodontics, we can provide professional fluoride applications as needed to make sure our patients’ teeth are well-supported.
Our team is thrilled to be able to offer families the flexibility and convenience that comes from treating all ages in one location. Your child is always warmly welcomed here as their uniquely growing smile grows and develops, whether they’re ready for a first gentle checkup or are in need of dedicated orthodontic treatment as a young adult. Better yet, our waiting room features plenty of fun touches that will keep them entertained, including a video arcade and game room!Learn More About Childrens Dentistry
