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 will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral 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 may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. 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. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.

We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. We want to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.

We will also take X-rays or radiographs for many different reasons, but one reason is to check for tooth decay at the very back 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.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as 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. If your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that there are no major problems.

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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. 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 that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.

 

Teeth Cleanings

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. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.

Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.

For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. 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.

Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire 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 dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.

Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.

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

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Periodontal disease is caused by this.

  • Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food

  • Cyst development 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 sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very 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.

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.

There are many dentists that can remove wisdom. However, if the wisdom tooth or other teeth are severely impacted, an oral surgeon may be required. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. 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.

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

Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.

Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.

With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. A second factor to be aware of is the fact that the laser is not used for soft tissue procedures. It is only used for the tooth being treated. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.

White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or 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 can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.

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 fillings may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.

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

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Frisco Lakes – Del Webb Retirement Community office.

 

Sedation dentistry

The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.

Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.

Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under your arm.

Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient cannot move and must be continuously 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. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have 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 is a way to eliminate the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. 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 and seal your tooth to keep germs out. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Frisco Lakes – Del Webb Retirement Community over the 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 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 can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. 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 any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It is painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. 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 can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.

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

 

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. 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” refers to the integration of dental implant 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.

Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.

For those who have lost or cannot take care of their oral health because of missing or extracted teeth, dental implants may be the best option.



Many dentists near Frisco Lakes – Del Webb Retirement Community offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. 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 manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

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. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

There are many types of dentures:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

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

 

Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.

Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.

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.

Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.

Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.

It is more secure and comfortable than a normal 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 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: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached 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 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 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.
