Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral 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 cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
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.
There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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. 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 our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. 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 will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We love to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the 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. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.
In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth 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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
If your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with 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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of 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 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. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with 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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
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 are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as 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. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Cypress Lake At Stonebriar vicinity.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by 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 is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation 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 leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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 will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Cypress Lake At Stonebriar.
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. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. 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, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth 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 Cypress Lake At Stonebriar since many 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 can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
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 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 will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from 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.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. Bridges may be used after you’ve had any remaining teeth removed (such a during a dentist’s implant procedure) or after your teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease.
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. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. 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. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.
Many dentists near Cypress Lake At Stonebriar offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. 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 large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific 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. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
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.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be 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.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Cypress Lake At Stonebriar. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
