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. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
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.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it 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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
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. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major issues.
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. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
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 we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and 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 love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
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 are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and 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.
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 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.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontic treatment
In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.
Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.
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.
After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to three days.
Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
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 is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. 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.

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings have become the preferred 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-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. 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 fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than 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 can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Creeks Of Willow Bend vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. 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 Creeks Of Willow Bend.
Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. The truth is that this doesn’t work. Long-term anti-inflammatory medication can lead to kidney problems and cause permanent damage.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
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 and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Creeks Of Willow Bend for many years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. 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 are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. 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 restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further 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 also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It is very painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, teeth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support 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,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near Creeks Of Willow Bend offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
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. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. 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.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will make snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is a perfect fit.
After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Creeks Of Willow Bend. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
