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 will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.

In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.

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 may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. 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 dentist

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.

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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.

After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.

We recommend establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. 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 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 Cleanings

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 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.

Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. 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, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.

 

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.

Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future 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:

  • Wisdom tooth with an impact

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • Stuck in the jawbone

  • Pain becomes a source of discomfort

  • Becomes a cause of periodontal disease

  • Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food

  • Cyst formation in the 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 you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you 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.

Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.

In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.

Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.

At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. 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. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. There are many types of lasers available.

The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages 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. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during 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 Nob Hill area.

 

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 today are the most preferred type of filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Composite fillings are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.

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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings tend to stay in place longer than traditional gold fillings, and are therefore less likely for them to come loose. 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 may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth colored filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.

Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Nob Hill area.

 

Sedation dentistry

Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease 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 (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. 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). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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 will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Nob Hill area.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.

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

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Nob Hill for 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 a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.

There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are 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. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.

A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. 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 you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair 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. 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 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. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.

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.

Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. 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 Nob Hill offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.

PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. 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. 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. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

Dentures

In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.

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.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials & full) 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 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.

The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.

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

Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.

It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.

Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.

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

Your dentist will make snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is a perfect fit.

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

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

Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of 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 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.
