Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. 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. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their 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. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite problems. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
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 you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.
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 must be in close contact to patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of 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. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
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.
Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. 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 wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease can result.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes With 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.
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.
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’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.
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.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
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. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
Sutures are not required 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. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are one of the best dental clinics near North Central that offers specialized laser treatments.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of 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. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. 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. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings are also available to repair broken-down molars. These molars are more susceptible to breaking because they lack the natural chewing force that provides support to the teeth in your front. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in North Central.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called 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 alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It may be 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.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
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 cannot move and must be continuously 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. 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the North Central area.
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 removes the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. 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 tooth will be 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 North Central since many years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
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 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.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. 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 you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also 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.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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 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. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and 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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
For those who have lost or cannot take care of their oral health because of missing or extracted teeth, dental implants may be the best option.
Many dentists near North Central offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than 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.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
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 that can be used with dental implants. 
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. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
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-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.
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.
Implant-supported overdentures are made up of two parts. A metal frame snaps onto dental implant posts, and a replacement tooth (or teeth) attached to it.
Overdentures are typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
