Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing 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.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
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.
There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If not caught early, this could cause pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. 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. 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.
Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
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. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or 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. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any 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, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or 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 removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for 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:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes 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.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. 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. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. 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 quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. 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.
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. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We’re one of the top dental clinics offering specialized laser treatments near Buckingham North.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. 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. 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
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 Buckingham North vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.
Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
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 type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Buckingham North.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. 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 removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. 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 Buckingham North since years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.
Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or 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. 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 can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
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.
A dental implant, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near Buckingham North offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
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. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. 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. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. 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.
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.
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. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction 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 taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
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.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will make snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is 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 are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.
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 can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Buckingham North. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
