Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental 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. 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 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 to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If not caught early, this could cause 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 suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural 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.
Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid 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. 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.
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. 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 extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
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:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease can result.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation in 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.
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.
While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. 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. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.
Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. 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 for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Firewheel Farms area.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Composite fillings are today’s most popular filling material. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type 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 filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Firewheel Farms.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
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 by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.
Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. 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 leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Firewheel Farms.
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. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. 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.
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 xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The tooth is then filled with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Firewheel Farms since many years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and 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. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further 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.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, 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. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
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, 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. 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.
A dental implant, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
A dental implant that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has 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.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
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 Firewheel Farms offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are many types of dentures:
* 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: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
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 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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
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 composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.
Overdentures are typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
