Common Treatments We Offer Here

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.

 

We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.

 

 

Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.

In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.

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 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. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.

Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.

After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.

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. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. 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 love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.

 

Dental Cleaning

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.

We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. 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.

For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. 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.

Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

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. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

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.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:

  • Wisdom tooth with an impact

  • Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • It can cause pain

  • Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst development around wisdom tooth

  • Interferes orthodontic treatment

Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’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.

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.

There are many dentists that can remove wisdom. However, if the wisdom tooth or other teeth are severely impacted, an oral surgeon may be required. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.

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.

Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. 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 has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.

With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.

Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. 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. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.

To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Knolls At Russell Creek area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.

Composite fillings are the current preferred 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 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 will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.

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 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 colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Knolls At Russell Creek vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease 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 by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.

At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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 type of sedation is more intense than other forms and requires that you remain in the dental clinic while being monitored.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Knolls At Russell Creek area.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. 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 on the other side eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.

An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. 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’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Knolls At Russell Creek over the years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.

Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future 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.

A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It’s very 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.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct 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. 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 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.

 

Dental implants

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.

An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with jawbones.

Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

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 Knolls At Russell Creek offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. 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. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.

 

Dentures

Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.

Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.

To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

There are many types of dentures:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.

It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.

The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.

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.

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-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.

Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.

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 learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.

Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.

An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.

Implant-supported overdentures are made up of two parts. A metal frame snaps onto dental implant posts, and a replacement tooth (or teeth) attached to it.

Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
