Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. 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 lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
In order to see if there are problems with the patient’s jaw, we will place a mouth mirror on top of their mouth and move it around so we can get a full view of the teeth and the inside of the mouth. We want to make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for 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.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.
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 our staff detects a problem, we’ll develop a customized cure plan that takes your kid’s greatest care and comfort into account. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.
We are always happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces of plaque. 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. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily 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 for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Country Villas offering laser treatments.
Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually 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 for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Country Villas vicinity.
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 (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter 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 is usually used in trauma cases or for 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 remains immobile and must be closely 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 type of sedation is more intense than other forms and requires that you remain in the dental clinic while being monitored.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Country Villas area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. 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. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Country Villas for many years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as 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 are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s very painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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.
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. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
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,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with 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. The technology and research have improved the outcomes of dental implant placements.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Villas 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. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. 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. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. 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.
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.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable 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 constructed with a metal framework which 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.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
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 held in place by suction, with no need for 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 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 you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
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 often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Country Villas. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
