Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
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 dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. 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. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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. If not caught early, this could cause pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural 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 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. 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 are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.
We love to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a 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. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
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.
You should be able to return to work the day after your wisdom tooth extraction, but strenuous activities should be avoided for 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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the 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 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. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re one of the top dental clinics offering specialized laser treatments near Country Club Ridge At The Trails.
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.
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 are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.
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 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 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 dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
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 out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Country Club Ridge At The Trails area.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called 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 is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It is often 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 type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
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 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. This level of sedation will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Country Club Ridge At The Trails area.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
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.
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 provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Country Club Ridge At The Trails since years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and 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 are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. 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 can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
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. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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 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. This artificial tooth root supports a new 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.
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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 Country Club Ridge At The Trails offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
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. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. 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 can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. 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.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
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.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
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.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
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 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.
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.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.
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 are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Country Club Ridge At The Trails. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
