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. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. We want them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
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. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any 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 speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.
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 wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease can result.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely 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.
It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most 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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). 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 is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.
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. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Creekside At Stonebriar.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly undetectable.
Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. 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 fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Creekside At Stonebriar vicinity.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental 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 leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.
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 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 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Creekside At Stonebriar.
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. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. 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, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during 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 is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Creekside At Stonebriar over the years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its 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. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from 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 are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s easy to do. 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 recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement 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.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all 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 Creekside At Stonebriar offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 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, 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 lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance 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.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) 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.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
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.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while 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.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
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: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top 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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Creekside At Stonebriar. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
