Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.
We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
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 can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
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 is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. There are many types of lasers available.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. 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 procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of 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.

Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. 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).
Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. 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 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. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Buckingham region.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. 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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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 may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.
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 must remain immobile and be 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 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Buckingham.
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. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The tooth is then filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Buckingham over the years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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 tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s easy to do. 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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges may be used after you’ve had any remaining teeth removed (such a during a dentist’s implant procedure) or after your teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged 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” is the integration of 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.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
For those who have lost or cannot take care of their oral health because of missing or extracted teeth, dental implants may be the best option.
Many dentists near Buckingham offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 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 can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. 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. 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. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
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 devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace 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
* 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 roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it 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.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
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’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
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.
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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Buckingham. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
