Thrive dental and orthodontics
Eventually, most patients need something a little more advanced than a cleaning. Maybe you have a cavity to fill, or one of your teeth has been compromised by an injury or disease. In these cases, and many others, the doctors at Thrive Dental provide personalized restorative dental care you deserve.
Dental crowns and bridges
Has the health or beauty of one of your teeth been compromised by decay or injury? Does your smile have a gap as a result of a missing tooth? A crown or bridge may be what you need to restore your smile’s health, beauty, and functionality. Dental crowns are made to protect existing teeth from becoming more compromised than they already are. Bridges are designed to fill in gaps caused by missing teeth.
Rooth canal therapy
Has one of your teeth developed a painful toothache or become sensitive to temperature? These are often signs of an infected tooth. In these cases, you may benefit from root canal therapy. For generations, dentists have used root canals to treat infected teeth. During treatment, all traces of infection will be removed from the patient’s tooth, in addition to the tooth’s nerve. The tooth will then be capped with a custom crown that will protect and restore the tooth.
Wisdom tooth extraction
Our wisdom teeth, which are also known as third molars, are vestigial teeth. This means that even though they develop naturally, our modern jaws don’t have room for them. If they’re allowed to erupt, certain complications may follow, including crowding or impaction. Thankfully, these painful consequences can be prevented by having your wisdom teeth removed.
Partial and dentures
Do you need to replace multiple teeth or even a full row of teeth? Dr. Nathan Coughlin and Dr. Christine Coughlin offer two helpful solutions — partial and full dentures. With these services, our Richardson dental team completes your smile and improves health and wellbeing. Partial dentures are designed to replace a few teeth whereas a full denture replaces a complete row of teeth. We also offer full-service care for those interested in an implant-supported partial or full denture.
