Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue 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. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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 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.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. 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 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 love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate 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. 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. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease can result.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist 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 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.
It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or 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 has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
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 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 specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily 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.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. 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 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. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
There are some downsides to 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. 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. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Audubon Park area.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. They’re designed to blend in with your teeth’s natural color and are secured to the tooth using a bonding agent that prevents them from falling off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly undetectable.
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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. 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 may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Audubon Park office.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation 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 by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate Sedation is mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It can 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.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive 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 remains immobile and must be closely monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Audubon Park.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. 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. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Audubon Park since years.
A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of 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 are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as 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. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It is very painless. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. 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 help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. 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.
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.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. 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.
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 Audubon Park offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. 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. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
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 created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
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-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative 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: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.
An implant-supported, overdenture is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
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 is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Audubon Park. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
