Common Treatments We Offer Here

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.

 

Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.

 

 

Dental exams

 

Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s 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. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in 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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.

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 not caught early, this could cause 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.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. 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 our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.

We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.

We recommend establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.

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!

 

Dental Cleaning

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.

We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products 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. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.

To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

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 can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.

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. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.

A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw

  • Stuck in jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Periodontal disease is caused by this.

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around wisdom teeth

  • Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment

Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.

Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.

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.

You should be able to return to work the day after your wisdom tooth extraction, but strenuous activities should be avoided for two or three 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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat 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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.

In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat 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. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.

There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.

However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re one of the top dental clinics offering specialized laser treatments near Parker.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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. 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.

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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with gold fillings. 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 are also available to repair broken-down molars. These molars are more susceptible to breaking because they lack the natural chewing force that provides support to the teeth in your front. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.

Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Parker.

 

Sedation dentistry

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 is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.

Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.

Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. The patient cannot move and must be continuously 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. 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Parker.

 

Root canal treatment

Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. The truth is that this doesn’t work. Long-term anti-inflammatory medication can lead to kidney problems and cause permanent damage.

Root canal treatment on the other side 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 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. We will then fill the tooth using composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Parker for years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that strengthens and improves the appearance of teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.

Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.

A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against 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 can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.

A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.

If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. 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. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.

 

Dental implants

Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.

A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant 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.

Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.



Many dentists near Parker offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. 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. 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.

At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.

 

Dentures

Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to 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.

For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.

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

* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. [1]

 

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 created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.

The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.

Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.

Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.

You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.

A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.

It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.

Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.

Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.

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: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.

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 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 provides dentures to patients in the Parker. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
