Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. 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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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 primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. 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 exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.
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. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. 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 happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions 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. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
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 may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease can result.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes With 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 may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
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.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to three days.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. There are many types of lasers available.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. 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. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one of the best dental clinics near Crystal Lakes that offers specialized laser treatments.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.
Composite fillings are the current 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 are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. 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 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.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Crystal Lakes office.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
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 may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient cannot move and must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. 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 Crystal Lakes.
Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to 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 hand, eliminates the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth is then filled with composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Crystal Lakes since 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 can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against 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 very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
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. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. 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 act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” is the integration of dental implants and 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.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near Crystal Lakes 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 can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid 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.
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. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction 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.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
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.
Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.
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: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.
An implant-supported, overdenture is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
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 offers dentures for patients living in Crystal Lakes. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
