Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. 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 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 will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still 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 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. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.

 

Children’s dentist

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural issues. If your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that 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. 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 should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.

We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.

 

Teeth Cleanings

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove 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. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate 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. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and 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

  • Immobilized in the jaw bone

  • Pain can become a problem

  • Periodontal disease can result.

  • Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes with 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 may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.

If it’s not too complicated, you can go home the same night as your wisdom tooth extraction. However you’ll need someone who will drive you and stay with that person for 24hrs.

The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional days.

Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. 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 the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). 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. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.

Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.

Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. 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 are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.

There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).

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. 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 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.

Composite tooth-colored dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. 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 can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.

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 Willow Bend Polo Estates vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

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

Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.

Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in 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 type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Willow Bend Polo Estates.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.

Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.

To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. 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 is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Willow Bend Polo Estates over the years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its 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 can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. 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. This could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.

A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.

The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. 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 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 is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

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

Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.



Many dentists near Willow Bend Polo Estates offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical 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. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

Dentures

Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

There are many types of dentures:

* 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 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 made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .

The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.

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 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 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 “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 often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Willow Bend Polo Estates. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
