Dental exams

 

During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.

In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. 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 see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the mouth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. 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 dentist

 

Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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.

Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. 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.

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. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.

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. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.

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. 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. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.

 

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. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.

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

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • Stuck in the jawbone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Periodontal disease may develop.

  • 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 local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’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.

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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.

The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. 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 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 have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. You can choose from a variety of lasers.

The need for sutures is reduced 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. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.

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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

For a free consultation, contact us today to find out if you are a candidate for laser dentistry. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Stewart Creek Estates area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.

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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.

Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. Composite tooth color fillings that match the tooth’s color actually stick to it. They don’t just sit on top of it like gold or silver. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. 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 allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.

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

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Stewart Creek Estates.

 

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 can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.

Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Stewart Creek Estates.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. 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. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as 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 tooth will be filled with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Stewart Creek Estates since years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.

There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.

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. 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.

A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any future damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. 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 for anyone, including 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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

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. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the 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. 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

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 acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.

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.

Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.



Many dentists near Stewart Creek Estates offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made from titanium or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound 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. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.

 

Dentures

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

False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and full) 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.

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 is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.

Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.

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

Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using 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.

Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.

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.

After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.

Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.

An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.

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 are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Stewart Creek Estates. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
