Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
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. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. 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 look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 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. 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.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends your child visit Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental for their first dental appointment at 18 months or younger. We can ensure that there aren’t any structural or 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.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. 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.
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. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. 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 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 need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
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. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions 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. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small 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. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Development of cysts around 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.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
You can go home on the same day as your wisdom tooth extraction if it is uncomplicated, but you’ll need someone to drive you and stay with you for 24 hours.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next 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 can be used to treat many oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard 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. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. This is possible with different types of lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. 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 effect speeds up wound healing and allows for 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. 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. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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 are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 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 are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Carrollton Heights vicinity.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
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 is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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 level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Carrollton Heights area.
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 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 side eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth will be filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Carrollton Heights since years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
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. 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further 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 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 is very painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
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 acts as a substitute for the root of a lost 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,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.
Many dentists near Carrollton Heights offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. 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. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific 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. 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 devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. 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 and complete) 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 done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
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: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
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.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is 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 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 is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Carrollton Heights. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
