Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. 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 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. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. 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. 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 children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and 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’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
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 should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. 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!
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove 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. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes with 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.
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.
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’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. 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 specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily 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.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat 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. 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.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.
Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Josey Park Estates area.
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 is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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. 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Josey Park 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. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We will then fill the tooth using composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Josey Park Estates for many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
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. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It is painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. 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” 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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 Josey Park Estates offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 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, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid 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. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
Traditional complete denture: Also known as standard or conventional fixed full, the traditional complete denture is the most durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting type of full dental work.
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: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for 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.
After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for 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 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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Josey Park Estates. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
