Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. 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. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral 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 lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
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 check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends your child visit Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental for their first dental appointment at 18 months or younger. We can ensure that there aren’t any structural or overbite issues. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major issues.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
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. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. 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 dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with 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. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. 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.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. 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.
In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there 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.
Most dental practices can extract wisdom teeth. However, in cases where the wisdom or moderately impacted teeth need to be removed, you might need to consult an oral specialist. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
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. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Remember that laser light is only used to treat 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. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. 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. 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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.
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 stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
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-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. 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’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Parker Road 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during 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 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, the most powerful type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. 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. 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Parker Road Estates area.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. 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 is a way to eliminate the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Parker Road Estates for years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from 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 help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It is 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 might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
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. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between 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 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.
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. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near Parker Road Estates offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term clinical scientific research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.
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. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction 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.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture: A partial denture, also known as a “temporary partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for 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 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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant 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 are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Parker Road Estates, is the best. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
