Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral 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 lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.

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 that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.

There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe 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 dentist

 

Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and 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 be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.

We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.

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. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. 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 will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.

 

Teeth Cleaning

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

Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.

We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.

The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments of plaque. 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.

 

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 can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.

Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and 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 teeth

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • It becomes a source for pain

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes orthodontist treatment

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

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

 

The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.

There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue 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.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.

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. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows 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 quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat 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 one of the best dental clinics near Lakeview that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.

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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.

White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. 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 outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.

Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace broken-down or damaged molars. They are vulnerable to fracture due to their lack of support from natural chewing forces. Tooth colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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 will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Lakeview office.

 

Sedation dentistry

The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under your arm.

Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or 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 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. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.

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

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and 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 eliminates 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. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

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. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.

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

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.

Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. 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 your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future 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, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s very painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral 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 surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. 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.

Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. The technology and research have improved the outcomes of dental implant placements.

Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.

Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.



Many dentists near Lakeview offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound 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. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.

 

Dentures

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

False teeth are also called dentures. They 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. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

You can choose from:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective 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 made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.

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’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.

A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.

It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.

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

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

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 provides dentures to patients in the Lakeview. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
