Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
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 will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. 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 determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
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. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe 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 advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. 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 be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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!
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
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.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. 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 removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes With 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.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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 also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many 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.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t 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. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).
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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. 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 are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. 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 are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
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 Los Rios Park – Apartments.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by 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 to allow the patient to relax and be 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. This is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under 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 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 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 is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Los Rios Park – Apartments.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. Most people take painkillers to relieve 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 on the other side eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth will be filled with composite. 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 Los Rios Park – Apartments for years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further 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 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 is very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. 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. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your 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.
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 are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 Los Rios Park – Apartments offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 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 or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. 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 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.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
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 roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix 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 denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
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 learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of implants.
An implant-supported overdenture consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Los Rios Park – Apartments, is the best. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
