Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. 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.

We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.

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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

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. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite 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 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. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.

After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.

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. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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!

 

Teeth Cleanings

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

Dental hygienists keep in touch 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. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more 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.

To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole 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.

Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • It becomes a source for pain

  • Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.

  • Due to trapped food, causes decay 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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.

If you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you for 24hrs.

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.

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

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.

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 only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.

At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.

Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.

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. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Stonebriar – Westin area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.

Composite fillings have become the preferred 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-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than 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.

Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. 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 can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.

Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Stonebriar – Westin vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.

Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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. The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.

Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

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 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. This type of sedation is more intense than other forms and requires that you remain in the dental clinic while being monitored.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Stonebriar – Westin.

 

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. 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. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.

We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Stonebriar – Westin for many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or 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 restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. 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 old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future 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 also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.

A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s very 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 might be created while the permanent one takes shape.

The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.

A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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

Dental implants are a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone. It is then allowed to attach with the bone in a few months. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.

Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between 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. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

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 Stonebriar – Westin offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.

PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound 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 will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.

 

Dentures

In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.

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

Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in 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].

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 full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option 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 you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.

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

Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of 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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
