Dental exams

 

During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental 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. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. 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 make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.

There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. 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.

Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.

We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.

Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. 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 may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.

We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.

 

Teeth Cleaning

A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.

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

We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. 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 crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.

Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove 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. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

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.

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

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw

  • Stuck in the jawbone

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

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

  • Development of cysts around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes in orthodontic treatment

Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

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.

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.

While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.

Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.

Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

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.

Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

There are some downsides 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. 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. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Preston Highlands North area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. 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 preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.

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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. 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 tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.

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 are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.

Ceramic materials can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Preston Highlands North vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.

Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing 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 is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is 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. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Preston Highlands North.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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 eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.

We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Preston Highlands North for many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. 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 tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.

Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by 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.

The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. 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. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.

The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.

A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.

 

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,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.

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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

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 Preston Highlands North 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. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. 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 can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in 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.

Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. 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. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.

Different types include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional complete denture: Also known as standard or conventional fixed full, the traditional complete denture is the most durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting type of full dental work.

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. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.

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

Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.

Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.

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

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

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

Your dentist will make your snap-in dentures in a dental lab by taking a plaster model of your jaw and gums, then fitting the denture inside your mouth to make sure it’s a perfect fit.

After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.

Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.

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 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 will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
