Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
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’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. 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. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
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.
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. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
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.
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. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact 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. 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.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
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 and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes with orthodontic treatment
In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely 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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat 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.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. 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.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Cambridge Estates offering laser treatments.
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.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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 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. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.
Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. 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 fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Cambridge Estates vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease 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. 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Cambridge Estates.
Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. 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. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Cambridge Estates for many years.
A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any future damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It’s very painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a 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 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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.
Dental implants are a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone. It is then allowed to attach with the bone in a few months. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant 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. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
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 Cambridge Estates 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. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. 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. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
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.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
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 fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.
Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Cambridge Estates. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
