Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
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.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. 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. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. 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 are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. Smaller pieces of plaque can be removed with handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette. 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. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. 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 dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
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 has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.
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.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
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. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Dominion at Panther Creek offering laser treatments.
Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as 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.
Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.
Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
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 Dominion at Panther Creek vicinity.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex 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 remains immobile and must 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Dominion at Panther Creek.
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. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Dominion at Panther Creek for many years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or 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. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. 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 will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from 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 may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s 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.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges can be made after you have had your remaining teeth extracted (such as during an implant procedure), or after you lose teeth due to periodontal disease.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. 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. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Dominion at Panther Creek offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
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. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid 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. 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.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. 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 complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined 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.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.
Partial denture: A partial denture, also known as a “temporary partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
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 consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.
Overdentures can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
