Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
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.
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 cause pain if it’s not found early on. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. If your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that there are no major problems.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. 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. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
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 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.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
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 use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments 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 do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the 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. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and 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 neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
If you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you 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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. There are many types of lasers available.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. 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.
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. 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 the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Central Carrollton.
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 blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
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. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. 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 stronger and more durable fillings than with 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.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. 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. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Central Carrollton region.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.
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). However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in 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 level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.
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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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. 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 Central Carrollton area.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
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 offers endodontic services to patients in Central Carrollton for many years.
A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.
A dental crown will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. 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’s easy to do. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also improve your bite. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, 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 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. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement 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” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Central Carrollton offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. 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. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and 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. 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. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective 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 made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture: A partial denture, also known as a “temporary partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
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-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
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: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests 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 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 serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
