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. 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. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. 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 allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
To see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the mouth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If not caught early, this could cause pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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 your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that there are no major problems.
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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent 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 can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
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!
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes 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.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers 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.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster and more comfortable cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller 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. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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.
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.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is 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 discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. 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. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. 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. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments.
Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. 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 may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. 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. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments region.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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. 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.
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 can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, the most powerful type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. The patient remains immobile and must be closely monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. 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. 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 x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments for 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.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against 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 are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
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. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
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 are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
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 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 Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
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. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. 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 substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term 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 ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.
It is made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
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 is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.
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 are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable 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 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 offers dentures for patients living in Legends At Ridgeview Ranch Apartments. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
