Dental exams

 

During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.

We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.

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

We may also need to take radiographs and X-rays. However, one reason we do so is to check for any decay in the back part of the mouth. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.

We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. 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.

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. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.

 

Teeth Cleanings

A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.

Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.

We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. 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. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire 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 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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Periodontal disease can result.

  • Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes with orthodontic 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.

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.

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’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on 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 quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.

In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t 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 discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. 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.

There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in 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.

Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Oak Point Estates offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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 are today’s most popular filling material. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.

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 much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.

Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. This gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.

Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. 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 are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.

Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Oak Point Estates region.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.

Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.

Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.

At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term 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 remains immobile and must 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Oak Point Estates.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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 it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem 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. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Oak Point Estates over the 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 basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.

There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. 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.

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 inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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. 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 can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. 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 is also how our dentist creates false teeth.

The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges are available after your remaining teeth have been removed (such as during a procedure for a dental implant), or after you have lost teeth due either to periodontal disease/injury.

 

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. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.

A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.

Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s 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 Oak Point Estates offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with 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. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.

 

Dentures

Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that 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. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

Different types include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. [1]

 

Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.

It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.

The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.

Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.

Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.

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-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.

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

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 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 (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is 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 made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.

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

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
