Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral 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. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
To see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the mouth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If not caught early, this could cause pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
We recommend establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. Smaller pieces of plaque can be removed with handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
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.
The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional days.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. There are many types of lasers available.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Broadway Village area.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. 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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly 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 stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace broken-down or damaged molars. They are vulnerable to fracture due to their lack of support from natural chewing forces. Tooth colored filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring 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 bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Broadway Village region.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic 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, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to 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. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Broadway Village area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Broadway Village since many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental crown will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. This could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It is 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.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also improve your bite. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
A dental implant that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has excellent stability. “Osseointegration” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near Broadway Village offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional complete denture: Also known as standard or conventional fixed full, the traditional complete denture is the most durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting type of full dental work.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.
After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of implants.
An implant-supported overdenture is composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.
Overdentures are often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Broadway Village, is the best. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
