Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.

We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.

In order to see if there are problems with the patient’s jaw, we will place a mouth mirror on top of their mouth and move it around so we can get a full view of the teeth and the inside of the mouth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.

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 not caught early, this could cause 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

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. 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.

Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.

Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.

We recommend establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.

We are always happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!

 

Dental Cleaning

A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.

Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.

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

We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. 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.

In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. 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 dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.

Many dentists and surgeons advocate wisdom teeth extraction even though impacted teeth may not cause any issues. This is a way to avoid future problems. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.

A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Stuck within jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes in orthodontic treatment

Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.

Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.

If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there for 24 hours.

It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or three days.

There are many dentists that can remove wisdom. However, if the wisdom tooth or other teeth are severely impacted, an oral surgeon may be required. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.

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 specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.

Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.

Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. There are many types of lasers available.

Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. 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. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Oakridge area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.

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. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.

Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver 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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than 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 can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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 will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Oakridge.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by 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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.

Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during 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.

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 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Oakridge.

 

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 is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.

Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.

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

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Oakridge for years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.

Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.

Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and 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 will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. 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 painless. 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.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more 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. 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” is the integration of dental implants 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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.

Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

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 Oakridge offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given 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 large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.

At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.

 

Dentures

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

Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

There are several types of dentures available:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.

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

The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

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

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

It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.

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

It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.

Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.

They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.

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 (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.

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 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.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
