Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.

In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the 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 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 to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.

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 lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. 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 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. 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.

Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then 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.

Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.

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 Cleaning

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.

Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.

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. 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.

Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. 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 extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.

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:

  • Wisdom tooth with an impact

  • Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Becomes a cause of periodontal disease

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes orthodontist treatment

In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.

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

You can go home on the same day as your wisdom tooth extraction if it is uncomplicated, but you’ll need someone to drive you and stay with you 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

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.

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

Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is 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 existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.

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.

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. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. 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 some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

For a free consultation, contact us today to find out if you are a candidate for laser dentistry. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Lakeside On Preston.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.

Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.

Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. 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 will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.

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 and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.

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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.

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 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. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Lakeside On Preston.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.

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 to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.

Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often 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 is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe dental procedures such as complex oral surgery, extractions of large numbers of teeth, 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 Lakeside On Preston.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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 removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.

We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Lakeside On Preston since years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.

Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be 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 can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or 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.

The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from 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 also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.

A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It’s easy to do. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.

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. 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. 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, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.

Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.

Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.

For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.



Many dentists near Lakeside On Preston 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. 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 from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. 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. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced 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.

False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.

For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures 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 are used in conjunction with dental implant. [1]

 

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

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

Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.

You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.

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

It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.

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

Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.

Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.

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: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.

An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.

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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
