Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. 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 establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
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 dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. Smaller pieces of plaque can be removed with handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. 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. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or 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 teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontic treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
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.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. 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.
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 used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Park North area.
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 are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.
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 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. 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.
Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two 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 is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Park North area.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often 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.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.
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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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 level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Park North.
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. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
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. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Park North for many years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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 come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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 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 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 to anyone, even children. It is 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. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also improve your bite. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
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.
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. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. 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” is the integration of dental implants and 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. The technology and research have improved the outcomes of dental implant placements.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
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 Park North 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 materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. 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. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
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. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
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.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
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.
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 are often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
