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 inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.

In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.

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 check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.

There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. 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.

We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. 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.

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 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 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!

 

Teeth Cleanings

A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.

Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.

We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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.

To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. 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.

A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw

  • Immobilized in the jaw bone

  • Pain becomes a source of discomfort

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment

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

In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.

If your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with 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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.

Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.

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 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 has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. 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 can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.

However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during 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 Garland that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.

Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.

White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with 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 can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore 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. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Garland area.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental 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.

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 type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

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 can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Garland.

 

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. 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 on the other side eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Garland for 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 extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.

A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future 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 can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.

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

A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. 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 is also how our dentist creates false teeth.

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.

An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.

Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. 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.

Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.



Many dentists near Garland offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical 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. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

Dentures

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

The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. 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 partial and 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 done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.

The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.

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

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

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

Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.

It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.

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.

You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.

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

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 are often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Garland. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
