Dental exams

 

During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing 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 the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums 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 may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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 properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.

We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.

After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.

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 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!

 

Teeth Cleaning

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

Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.

We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. 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.

The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker 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. 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.

To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction is the surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.

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.

A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:

  • Wisdom teeth that have been impacted

  • Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Periodontal disease is caused by this.

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

  • Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes orthodontist treatment

In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.

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

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.

After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to 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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.

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 specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing 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. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.

Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. A second factor to be aware of is the fact that the laser is not used for soft tissue procedures. It is only used for the tooth being treated. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Old Shepard Place Apartments offering laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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 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 will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.

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 out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Old Shepard Place Apartments area.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. 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. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.

Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under your arm.

Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, the most powerful type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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. 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 Old Shepard Place Apartments 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 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. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. 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.

To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Old Shepard Place Apartments since many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of 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 can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.

Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want 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. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.

A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. 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. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.

The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct 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.

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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 surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth 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.

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

Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.



Many dentists near Old Shepard Place Apartments offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. 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, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any 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

Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable 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 necessary to hold dentures in place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].

You can choose from:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. [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 supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.

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

Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure 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-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.

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

Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.

Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.

Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.

Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make 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 dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.

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.
