Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
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. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. 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 to determine how much gum tissue remains 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 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. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe 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.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and overbite issues. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure 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’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. 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 that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. 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 may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.
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 need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution 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. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform 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 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 toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes in 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.
Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.
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.
The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional days.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. 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. 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.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. 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.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
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. This is possible with different types of lasers.
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 laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
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 Panther Creek Estates offering laser treatments.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.
Composite fillings are today’s most popular filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. 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 much less likely than gold to break or fall out. 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 tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining 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. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Panther Creek Estates vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. This is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Panther Creek Estates.
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. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.
Root canal treatment, on the other hand, eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Panther Creek Estates since many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, 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. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. 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 could be a great choice for individuals who have had a root canal and want to avoid having more extensive work done in the future. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It is very painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment 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.
Dental implants are a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone. It is then allowed to attach with the bone in a few months. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants 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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 Panther Creek Estates offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant 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 will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern 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.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. 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 complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined 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.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
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.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of implants.
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.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Panther Creek Estates. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
