Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. 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 many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

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. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. 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 our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. 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. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.

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

We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. 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 are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.

 

Teeth Cleanings

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

Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of 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 polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. 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.

To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. 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 extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.

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 tooth

  • Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.

  • Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes with orthodontic treatment

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

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

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.

It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or three 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 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. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.

Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. 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 quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.

At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.

Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. 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.

Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.

There are some downsides 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. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Holford area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.

Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. They’re designed to blend in with your teeth’s natural color and are secured to the tooth using a bonding agent that prevents them from falling 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 fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. 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 stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.

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 fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.

Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Holford vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

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

Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.

Moderate Sedation is mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.

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 must remain immobile and be 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Holford.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.

Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.

To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth is then filled with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

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

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.

Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.

Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. Because porcelain crowns are used to restore damaged teeth rather than strengthen them, they are often more in demand from patients who wish an aesthetic restoration.

A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against 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 are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.

A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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 your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.

The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct 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 replaces one tooth or more that 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

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. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with 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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.

Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

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 Holford offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly 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 sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.

At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

Dentures

Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.

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

Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

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

* 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 created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.

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 partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.

Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.

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

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-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.

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

Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.

An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top 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, a leading provider of dentures near Holford, is the best. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
