Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
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’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s 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 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.
To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their 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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. 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.
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. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
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 dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small pieces 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform 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. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst development around 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 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.
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.
Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. 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 only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. There are many types of lasers available.
Sutures are not required 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. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
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. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

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.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. 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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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 are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. 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 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 for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. 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. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Forest Crest.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called 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 to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep 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 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 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 requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Forest Crest area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
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 x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. 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 providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Forest Crest for years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.
A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. 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 of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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 surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.
Many dentists near Forest Crest 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. 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. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. 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. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available 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. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction 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 roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
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.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached 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 is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
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 serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
