Common Treatments We Offer Here

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.

 

We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.

 

 

Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s 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. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.

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 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 not caught early, this could cause pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural 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.

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. 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.

Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.

We recommend that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. 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 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 happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.

 

Teeth Cleaning

A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.

Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.

We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.

Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. 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. 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

 

Wisdom tooth extraction is the surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.

Many dentists and surgeons advocate wisdom teeth extraction even though impacted teeth may not cause any issues. This is a way to avoid future problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.

A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth

  • Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • Pain becomes a source of discomfort

  • Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth

  • Interferes in 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 is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

If it’s not too complicated, you can go home the same night as your wisdom tooth extraction. However you’ll need someone who will drive you and stay with that person 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.

While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

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.

The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.

At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not 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 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. This is possible with different types of lasers.

Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. 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 some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. 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. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.

Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. 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.

Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. 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.

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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.

Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.

Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the La Prada Retail region.

 

Sedation dentistry

Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.

Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.

Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

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 can be used in cases of trauma or extensive 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 remains immobile and must be closely 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 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within La Prada Retail.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.

Root canal treatment eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.

To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth is then filled with composite. 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 La Prada Retail for years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its 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. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or 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 will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from 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 be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.

An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.

The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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.

 

Dental implants

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. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.

Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “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.

Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

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 La Prada Retail offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.

According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly 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. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.

 

Dentures

Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).

False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.

Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

Different types include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.

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.

Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.

It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.

Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.

It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.

Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.

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.

You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.

Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.

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

An implant-supported, overdenture is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.

Overdentures are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near La Prada Retail. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
