Dental exams

 

During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact 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 can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.

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 to make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.

We may also need to take radiographs and X-rays. However, one reason we do so is to check for any decay in the back part of the mouth. If not caught early, this could cause pain. 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

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and overbite 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 the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. 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. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.

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 our staff detects a problem, we’ll develop a customized cure plan that takes your kid’s greatest care and comfort into account. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.

 

Dental Cleaning

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

Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.

Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.

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. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments of plaque. 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. 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 is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.

Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.

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

  • Wisdom tooth with an impact

  • Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Becomes a cause of periodontal disease

  • Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes orthodontic treatment

Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

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.

After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to three days.

Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.

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.

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 rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. 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 found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. This is possible with different types of lasers.

Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.

Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Custer Creek Farms area.

 

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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.

White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth color fillings that match the tooth’s color actually stick to it. They don’t just sit on top of it like gold or silver. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.

Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.

Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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 composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.

Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Custer Creek Farms region.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as 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 is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.

Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.

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 is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient cannot move and must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or extensive root canal work. 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Custer Creek Farms.

 

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. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. 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. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem 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. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Custer Creek Farms for many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. 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 come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and 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 will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.

A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.

The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.

The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges can be made after you have had your remaining teeth extracted (such as during an implant procedure), or after you lose teeth due to periodontal disease.

 

Dental implants

Dental implants are a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone. It is then allowed to attach with the bone in a few months. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

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” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.

Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.

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.

For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.



Many dentists near Custer Creek Farms offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.

 

Dentures

Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).

Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.

Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.

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

* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.

It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.

The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.

Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.

It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.

A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.

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 used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.

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: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.

Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests 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, a leading provider of dentures near Custer Creek Farms, is the best. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
