Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
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 will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. 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 make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We may also need to take radiographs and X-rays. However, one reason we do so is to check for any decay in the back part of the mouth. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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 skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If our staff detects a problem, we’ll develop a customized cure plan that takes your kid’s greatest care and comfort into account. 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.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. 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.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from 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 involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
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 teeth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around 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 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.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. 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 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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely 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.
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 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. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. 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.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Country Place, Inc. area.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many 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).
Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Composite fillings are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and 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 can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.
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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
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 filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your 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. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Country Place, Inc..
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty 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 can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Country Place, Inc..
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates 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 can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We will then fill the tooth using 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 Country Place, Inc. over the years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves 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 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. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. 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 painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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 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 surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged 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” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. 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. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
For those who have lost or cannot take care of their oral health because of missing or extracted teeth, dental implants may be the best option.
Many dentists near Country Place, Inc. 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. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. 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. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .
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 part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
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 are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will create your snap-in dentures by making a plaster mold of your jaw and gums. Then, the denture will be fitted inside your mouth to ensure it fits perfectly.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
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, a leading provider of dentures near Country Place, Inc., is the best. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
