Dental exams

 

During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect 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 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 allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.

We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.

 

Children’s dentist

 

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 first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.

Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by 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.

Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. 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 may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.

We are always happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!

 

Dental Cleaning

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.

We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even 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. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and 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. 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. 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. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.

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

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw

  • Immobilized in the jaw bone

  • Pain becomes a source of discomfort

  • Periodontal disease can result.

  • Because of trapped food, decay can occur 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 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.

You should be able to return to work the day after your wisdom tooth extraction, but strenuous activities should be avoided for two or three days.

While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of 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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.

Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. 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. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.

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 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 of the best dental clinics near Dalcastle & Linda Heights that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).

Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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 are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually 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 allows for stronger and more durable fillings than with 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.

Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Dalcastle & Linda Heights vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation 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 to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.

Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, the most powerful type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Dalcastle & Linda Heights.

 

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. 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 removes the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Dalcastle & Linda Heights since years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

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 come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, 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 will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. 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. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.

The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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

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. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement 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.

The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.

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 Dalcastle & Linda Heights offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced 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.

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of 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 metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

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

Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.

It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.

Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.

It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.

Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.

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 are typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Dalcastle & Linda Heights. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
