We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.

 

 

Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.

In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

In order to see if there are problems with the patient’s jaw, we will place a mouth mirror on top of their mouth and move it around so we can get a full view of the teeth and the inside of the mouth. We want to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.

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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just 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 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 the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. 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.

We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.

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. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. 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

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

Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.

We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and 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. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small 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. 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 surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.

Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. 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 neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Stuck in the jawbone

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes with orthodontic treatment

Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.

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

If it’s not too complicated, you can go home the same night as your wisdom tooth extraction. However you’ll need someone who will drive you and stay with that person for 24hrs.

It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or 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 has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.

 

 

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.

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 the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.

In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.

Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

The need for sutures is reduced 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. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages 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 in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Firewheel offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.

White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold 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.

Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.

Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. 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 can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.

Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Firewheel area.

 

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 is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.

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 may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Firewheel.

 

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. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is 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, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.

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

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Firewheel for many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.

Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against 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 crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s very painless. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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 surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great 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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

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 Firewheel 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. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. 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. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.

 

Dentures

In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.

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.

For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

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

 

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

The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which 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.

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

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

Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.

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

An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.

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 is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Firewheel. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
