Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
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 comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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 to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. 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 make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. 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.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. 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 polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist 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 might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. 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.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
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. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity 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. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Heather Ridge Estates area.
There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. 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. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping 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 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 are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.
Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. 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 is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Heather Ridge Estates office.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty 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 (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 allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. This is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex 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 must remain immobile and be 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 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Heather Ridge Estates.
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. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected 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. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Heather Ridge Estates over the years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown or inlay can be used for any age, even children. It’s painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a 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 is a way to replace missing teeth and correct 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.
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 teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
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” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.
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 can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near Heather Ridge Estates 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. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made from titanium or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound 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 ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
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.
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
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 fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is 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 are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of implants.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Heather Ridge Estates, is the best. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
