Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. 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. 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. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. 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 speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
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. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 work closely with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small pieces of plaque. 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. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
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.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for 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 tooth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontic treatment
In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
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 also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on 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. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. There are many types of lasers available.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one of the best dental clinics near Orchard Hills that offers specialized laser treatments.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. 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 are today’s most popular 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than 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.
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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
Tooth colored fillings may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore 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 bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Orchard Hills vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or extensive root canal work. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Orchard Hills.
Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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 hand, eliminates the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in 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. The tooth is then filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Orchard Hills for many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s very painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges can be made after you have had your remaining teeth extracted (such as during an implant procedure), or after you lose teeth due to periodontal disease.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
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.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. The technology and research have improved the outcomes of dental implant placements.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Orchard Hills offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
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 may choose from over 2000 implants for any given 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. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. 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.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.
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.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of 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
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
Traditional complete denture: Also known as standard or conventional fixed full, the traditional complete denture is the most durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting type of full dental work.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
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.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.
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 overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.
An implant-supported overdenture is composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Orchard Hills. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
