Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of 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 looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. 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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.

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 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 dentistry

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. 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. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then 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.

We recommend that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.

 

Teeth Cleanings

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

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

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. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate 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. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform 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 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:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Periodontal disease can result.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes in 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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.

You can go home on the same day as your wisdom tooth extraction if it is uncomplicated, but you’ll need someone to drive you and stay with you for 24 hours.

Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to three days.

Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety 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.

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 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.

At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.

Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. 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. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.

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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one of the best dental clinics near Pheasant Landing that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. 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 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. 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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly 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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type 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 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. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.

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 Pheasant Landing region.

 

Sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. 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. 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It is often 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 is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. The patient must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or extensive root canal work. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Pheasant Landing area.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. The truth is that this doesn’t work. Long-term anti-inflammatory medication can lead to kidney problems and cause permanent damage.

Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The tooth is then filled with composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.

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

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.

Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.

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 be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It is painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.

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. 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.

The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth 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

A dental implant, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.

Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.

The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.

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

Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.



Many dentists near Pheasant Landing offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant 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 can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard 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.

The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

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: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable type of full-denture.

Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.

The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.

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

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

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 fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.

Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.

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.

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, 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.
