Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact 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 lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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 that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
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 cause pain if it’s not found early on. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite 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 skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.
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 and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. 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.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any 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. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
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. 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:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
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 local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.
Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.
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.
The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional 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.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser 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 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.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat 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 Estates On Legacy Drive that offers specialized laser treatments.
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 have become the preferred filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. 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.
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 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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Estates On Legacy Drive region.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. This is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under your arm.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Estates On Legacy Drive.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. 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 is a way to eliminate the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. 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. The tooth is then 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 Estates On Legacy Drive for many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It is 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. 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 can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
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 are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
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,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
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.
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 Estates On Legacy Drive offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. 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. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant 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, 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. 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).
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. 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 partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination 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.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when 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 more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines 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 learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.
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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Estates On Legacy Drive. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
