Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
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 lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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 will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
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. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. 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.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
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. 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.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces 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. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
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 sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
If your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with for 24 hours.
After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to three 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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
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.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
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. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
Sutures are not required 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. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Brentwood Place area.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. 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.
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 are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. 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’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Brentwood Place area.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by 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 to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. 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 is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to 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 type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. The patient cannot move and must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. 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 Brentwood Place.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to 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. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The tooth is then filled with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Brentwood Place for many years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It is very painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair 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.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
A dental implant that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with 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.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near Brentwood Place offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. 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. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
Different types 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 full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
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 also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
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 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 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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of implants.
Implant-supported overdentures are made up of two parts. A metal frame snaps onto dental implant posts, and a replacement tooth (or teeth) attached to it.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
