Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need 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.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
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 it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just 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. 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.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then 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.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.
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 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. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire 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.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes with orthodontic treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
If you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you for 24hrs.
After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to three days.
There are many dentists that can remove wisdom. However, if the wisdom tooth or other teeth are severely impacted, an oral surgeon may be required. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. 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.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). 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. 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. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
The need for sutures is reduced 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. 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. 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.

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 have become the preferred filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling 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 fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually 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 for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
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. 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. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Oak Creek Estates area.
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 to make the patient feel relaxed and 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. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Oak Creek Estates.
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. 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 side eliminates the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Oak Creek Estates for years.
A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. 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 tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. 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. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.
A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any 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 also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s very painless. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
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.
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. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, 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 Oak Creek Estates offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. 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 is committed to providing the best in modern 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).
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.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
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 partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
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 denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
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: 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, overdenture is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
