Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from 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 checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. 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 to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums 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.
There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. 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 your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any 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 can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
We are always happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and curette. 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 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 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. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’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.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to three 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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. 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. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re one of the top dental clinics offering specialized laser treatments near La Prada.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. 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. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.
White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually 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 for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
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 filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.
Ceramic materials can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in La Prada.
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 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 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 results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the La Prada area.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. 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 hand, eliminates the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. The tooth is then filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near La Prada since many 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 are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. 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. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. 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. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It’s painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
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 and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, 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. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.
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. 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” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
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.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near La Prada offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. 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.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
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.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace 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 full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable 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 roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This 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: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
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: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth 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, a leading provider of dentures near La Prada, is the best. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
