Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their 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 will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
To see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the 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. 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 that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite problems. 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 the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.
We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products 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. 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. 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 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 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. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontic 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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
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.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
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 to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. There are many types of lasers available.
The need for sutures is reduced 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. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity of the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one of the best dental clinics near Chisholm Place Apartments that offers specialized laser treatments.
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).
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. 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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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 stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings tend to stay in place longer than traditional gold fillings, and are therefore less likely for them to come loose. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 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 are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
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 may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Chisholm Place Apartments area.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. 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’s used to help the patient relax and feel 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, 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 is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient cannot move and must be continuously 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 level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Chisholm Place Apartments.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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 eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. 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 will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Chisholm Place Apartments over the years.
A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
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. Because porcelain crowns are used to restore damaged teeth rather than strengthen them, they are often more in demand from patients who wish an aesthetic restoration.
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 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. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair 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 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.
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 are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Chisholm Place Apartments offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 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 of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term clinical scientific research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination 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 – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be 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.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Chisholm Place Apartments, is the best. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
