Dental exams

 

During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.

In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite problems. 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.

Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.

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.

We recommend that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. 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 to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!

 

Dental Cleaning

A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.

Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.

We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more 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. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

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 wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

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.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw

  • Stuck in the jawbone

  • It becomes a source for pain

  • Periodontal disease is caused by this.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes in orthodontic treatment

Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.

Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.

If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there for 24 hours.

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.

Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.

In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.

There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.

In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft 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 have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. This is possible with different types of lasers.

With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Creek Bend offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.

Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.

White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings tend to stay in place longer than traditional gold fillings, and are therefore less likely for them to come loose. 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 dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. This gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.

Tooth-colored fillings are also available to repair broken-down molars. These molars are more susceptible to breaking because they lack the natural chewing force that provides support to the teeth in your front. 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 out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Creek Bend area.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.

Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive 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 must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. This type of sedation is more intense than other forms and requires that you remain in the dental clinic while being monitored.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Creek Bend.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.

Root canal treatment eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.

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 can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Creek Bend since many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.

Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.

Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.

A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.

A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.

 

Dental implants

A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.

Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. 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 goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.



Many dentists near Creek Bend offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.

At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.

 

Dentures

Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.

Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.

You can choose from:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. [1]

 

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

It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.

The roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.

Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.

Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.

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

A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.

It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.

Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.

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

Your dentist will create your snap-in dentures by making a plaster mold of your jaw and gums. Then, the denture will be fitted inside your mouth to ensure it fits perfectly.

After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.

Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.

Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.

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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
