Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices 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.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
We will also take X-rays or radiographs for many different reasons, but one reason is to check for tooth decay at the very back of the mouth. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part 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.
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 establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.
We are always delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. 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.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments of plaque. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. 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 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 dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
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 towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
If your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with 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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat 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 be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. There are many types of lasers available.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. 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. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
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. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.
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 color fillings that match the tooth’s color actually stick to it. They don’t just sit on top of it like gold or silver. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.
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 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 Knolls Of Frisco area.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. 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.
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 most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. 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. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Knolls Of Frisco.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the 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 removes the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. 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 and seal your tooth to keep germs out. We will then fill the tooth using composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Knolls Of Frisco for many years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by 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 your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
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 false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “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. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Knolls Of Frisco offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
False teeth are also called dentures. They 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. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
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.
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. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
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 is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will create your snap-in dentures by making a plaster mold of your jaw and gums. Then, the denture will be fitted inside your mouth to ensure it fits perfectly.
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.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of 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.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
