Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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 your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that there are no major problems.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
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 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. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s 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 are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. 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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease can result.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of 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.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. 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 found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for 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.

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. 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 can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with 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 greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. 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 is a modern filling that we offer in our Highlands Of Russell Park office.
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 is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and 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 combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter 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 is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe dental procedures such as complex oral surgery, extractions of large numbers of teeth, 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Highlands Of Russell Park.
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. 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, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Highlands Of Russell Park for years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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 crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against 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 also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more 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 is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Highlands Of Russell Park offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 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 of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
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. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
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 can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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 learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
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 can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Highlands Of Russell Park. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
