Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate 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.

We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding 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 make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.

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 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

 

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 properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any 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 be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.

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.

Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. 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 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 Cleaning

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

Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.

Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. 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.

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.

To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole 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 can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.

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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.

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 neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Immobilized in the jaw bone

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes orthodontist treatment

Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

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.

Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

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 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 the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.

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 discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. 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.

There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

Tooth White Fillings

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.

Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of 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 are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. 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. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. 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 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. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Indian Creek area.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.

Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. 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 Indian Creek.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.

Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.

We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We will then fill the tooth using 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 Indian Creek for years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.

Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of 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 will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It’s very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.

A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.

The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.

 

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 tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.

Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.

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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all 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 Indian Creek offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.

PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by 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 can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly 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 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

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

For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.

Different types include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable type of full-denture.

It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.

The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.

Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.

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 fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.

They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.

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.

Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.

Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.

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

An implant-supported overdenture is composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.

Overdentures are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Indian Creek. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
