Why do I need regular dental cleaning and checkups?
Routine dental cleaning and checkups are a vital component of maintaining your overall health. At Family Dentistry of Frisco, Dr. Paresh B. Patel will give you a thorough oral examination, checking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and cancer. He’ll create a treatment plan that addresses your restorative, cosmetic, and general dentistry needs. Dr. Patel always discusses his recommendations with you, and partners with you to determine the best course of action for your dental health.
What is laser dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a state-of-the-state technology that allows us to perform comfortable, safe, and efficient procedures on our patients. At Family Dentistry of Frisco, our dental professionals use laser dentistry for periodontal therapy, fixing gummy smiles, and other soft tissue treatments.
How can you help me manage my dental anxieties?
At our Family Dentistry of Frisco practice, our primary focus is our patients and to ensure they are comfortable and relaxed. We can create all levels of comfort for our patients with sedation options, sterilization processes, state-of-the-art laser dentistry (eliminates shots!), and so much more. We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and even IV sedation.
Should I replace my missing teeth?
To maintain your oral health and improve your appearance, we do recommend you replace missing teeth. We offer a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, to fill in your smile gaps. Replacing missing teeth can also be part of your full-mouth reconstruction. Replacing your missing teeth will not only enhance your smile, but boost your confidence, too!
Is there a way to straighten my teeth without braces?
Yes, we have a “no-braces” option call Invisalign. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners made from comfortable, customized plastic. Over the course of 12-24 months, your teeth are gently straightened—and the aligners are virtually unnoticeable. At Family Dentistry of Frisco, we offer orthodontics for middle-schoolers, teens, and adults who want straighter teeth.
