Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
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’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral 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. 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. 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 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. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural 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 communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
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.
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. 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 seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. 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 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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
If it’s not too complicated, you can go home the same night as your wisdom tooth extraction. However you’ll need someone who will drive you and stay with that person for 24hrs.
It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or 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.
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 might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue 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 treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity of the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings have become the preferred 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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and 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, 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 for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth colored filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring 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 will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Park Groves office.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease 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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It is often 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 is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe dental procedures such as complex oral surgery, extractions of large numbers of teeth, 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Park Groves area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Park Groves for many years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It’s 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. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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 false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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, 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,” 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.
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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
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.
For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.
Many dentists near Park Groves offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that 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. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & 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.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
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 snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is a perfect fit.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.
Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests 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 serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
