Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s 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. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or 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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If not caught early, this could cause pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. 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.
Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s 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 are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They are responsible in cleaning 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. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid 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. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. 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. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
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. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there 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.
While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. 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 today are the most preferred type of 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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
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 are less likely to fall out than 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 tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
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 from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Chase Oaks – Apartments region.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state 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.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe dental procedures such as complex oral surgery, extractions of large numbers of teeth, and extensive root canal work. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Chase Oaks – Apartments.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Chase Oaks – Apartments for 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 degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or 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 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 may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. 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. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. 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,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.
Many dentists near Chase Oaks – Apartments offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. 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. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. 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. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any 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.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their 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.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make your snap-in dentures in a dental lab by taking a plaster model of your jaw and gums, then fitting the denture inside your mouth to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
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 serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
