Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate 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.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
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 it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and 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.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. 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 your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
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 for the cleaning of teeth.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. 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 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. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth 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 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.
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 also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). 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 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. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. 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. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of 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. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of 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.
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 color fillings that match the tooth’s color actually stick to it. They don’t just sit on top of it like gold or silver. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as 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 for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
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.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Estates at Wellington Run region.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called 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. 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient cannot move and must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or extensive root canal work. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Estates at Wellington Run.
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. People often resort to painkillers when they have 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 side eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
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 and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Estates at Wellington Run for years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
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. 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 existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any 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 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 to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also improve your bite. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges are available after your remaining teeth have been removed (such as during a procedure for a dental implant), or after you have lost teeth due either to periodontal disease/injury.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with 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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural 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 Estates at Wellington Run 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. 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 from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. 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 partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
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 is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
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 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.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit 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 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, a leading provider of dentures near Estates at Wellington Run, is the best. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
