Dental exams

 

During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from 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 checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums 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 make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.

We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to 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

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends your child visit Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental for their first dental appointment at 18 months or younger. We can ensure that there aren’t any structural or overbite 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.

We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.

Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.

We recommend establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.

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

 

Dental Cleaning

A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.

We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.

Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.

 

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 may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

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. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Periodontal disease is caused by this.

  • Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment

In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.

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

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.

The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional 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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be 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 is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.

Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to 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. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. You can choose from a variety 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. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

There are certain disadvantages associated with 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.

Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one of the best dental clinics near High Country that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

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. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.

White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. 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 can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.

Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. 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 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 bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the High Country region.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.

Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.

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 is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive 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 remains immobile and must be closely 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within High Country.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to 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 removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.

Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.

We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. We will then fill the tooth using composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around High Country over the years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.

Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. 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 are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. This could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.

A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even 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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false 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 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

A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.

A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.

Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.

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 High Country offer dental implants. Implants are not all 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. 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. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term 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 guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.

 

Dentures

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

Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.

To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.

There are several types of dentures available:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials 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.

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

The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.

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

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

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

It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.

Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.

They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.

Your dentist will make your snap-in dentures in a dental lab by taking a plaster model of your jaw and gums, then fitting the denture inside your mouth to make sure it’s a perfect fit.

After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.

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 is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.

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 offers dentures for patients living in High Country. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
