Dental exams

 

During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.

We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.

To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.

 

Children’s dentist

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural issues. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.

Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.

After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.

Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.

We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.

 

Teeth Cleaning

A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.

We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces of plaque. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.

In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.

Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.

A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:

  • Wisdom tooth with an impact

  • Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Becomes a cause of periodontal disease

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Development of cysts around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes with orthodontic treatment

In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

If you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you for 24hrs.

Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to three days.

Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.

The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.

Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.

Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. There are many types of lasers available.

There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.

There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity of the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.

Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.

Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.

Tooth colored fillings may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.

Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot area.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.

Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.

Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.

Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient remains immobile and must be closely monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot area.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. The truth is that this doesn’t work. Long-term anti-inflammatory medication can lead to kidney problems and cause permanent damage.

Root canal treatment eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.

We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot over the years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.

Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.

Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Because porcelain crowns are used to restore damaged teeth rather than strengthen them, they are often more in demand from patients who wish an aesthetic restoration.

A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.

A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It’s painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth are missing. Bridges may be used after you’ve had any remaining teeth removed (such a during a dentist’s implant procedure) or after your teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease.

 

Dental implants

Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.

Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with jawbones.

A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. The technology and research have improved the outcomes of dental implant placements.

Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.



Many dentists near Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.

PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term clinical scientific research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.

 

Dentures

Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.

The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.

For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

There are many types of dentures:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.

It is made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .

The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.

Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.

Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.

You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.

Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.

It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.

Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.

They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.

Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.

Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.

Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.

Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of implants.

An implant-supported overdenture consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.

Overdentures can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Apollo, Arapaho & Camelot. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
