Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. 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 determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
We may also need to take radiographs and X-rays. However, one reason we do so is to check for any decay in the back part of the mouth. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as 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. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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!
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. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.
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. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
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.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
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 the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to 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.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. 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. 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. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for 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 are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Addison.
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.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. 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 are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.
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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
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 can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Addison office.
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 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. 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under 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 is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. This level of sedation will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Addison.
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. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Addison for years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. 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 can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
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.
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 can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It is painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. Bridges are available after your remaining teeth have been removed (such as during a procedure for a dental implant), or after you have lost teeth due either to periodontal disease/injury.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement 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.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s 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 Addison offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. 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 can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. 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. 
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 created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
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 have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Addison. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
