Common Treatments We Offer Here

We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.

 

 

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

We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate 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 gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.

To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.

We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major issues.

Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. 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. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.

After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.

Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. 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 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 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 hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.

We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller 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. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.

 

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 extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.

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.

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

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease can result.

  • Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food

  • Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes 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.

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.

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.

Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.

Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers 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.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. There are many types of lasers available.

Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.

There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. 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. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Hills Of Kingswood.

 

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 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 preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.

Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. 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. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. 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 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.

Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also 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 Hills Of Kingswood region.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. 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.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Hills Of Kingswood.

 

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. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.

Root canal treatment eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.

Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.

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. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Hills Of Kingswood 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 come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. 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. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.

The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further 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 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’s easy to do. 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.

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. 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.

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

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. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

A dental implant that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants 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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.

Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

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 Hills Of Kingswood offer dental implants. But not all implants are 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. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term clinical scientific research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern 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.

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.

To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Bridges can be used 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 partials and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

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

 

Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.

It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.

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.

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.

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

It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.

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

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.

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

A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.

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.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
