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.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue 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 to make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.
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. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. 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. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major 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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. 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 that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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 cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and 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. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove 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. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontic 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.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. 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 the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. You can choose from a variety 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. 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 procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat 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 are one the most renowned dental clinics in Murphy offering laser treatments.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. 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 tend to stay in place longer than traditional gold fillings, and are therefore less likely for them to come loose. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are 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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Murphy office.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by 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 to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
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 is usually used in trauma cases or for 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 is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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 level of sedation will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Murphy.
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 does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. 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. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Murphy for many years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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 degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Because porcelain crowns are used to restore damaged teeth rather than strengthen them, they are often more in demand from patients who wish an aesthetic restoration.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against 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 crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It is very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports 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,” 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.
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 can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
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 Murphy offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere 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.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable 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.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
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.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.
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 Murphy, is the best. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
