Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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 check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
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. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
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. If your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that 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. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
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. If our staff detects a problem, we’ll develop a customized cure plan that takes your kid’s greatest care and comfort into account. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists work closely with 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. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. 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 most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and 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 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.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. 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 been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Parkway Towne Crossing area.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. 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 today are the most preferred type of 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. 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 are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually 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 allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
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-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Parkway Towne Crossing region.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by 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’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during 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 can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term 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 remains immobile and must 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Parkway Towne Crossing.
Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. 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 providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Parkway Towne Crossing for years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. 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 used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
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. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. 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’s painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. 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 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over 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.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Parkway Towne Crossing 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. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a 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. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available 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.
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can 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. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. 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 complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
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.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular 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 make your snap-in dentures in a dental lab by taking a plaster model of your jaw and gums, then fitting the denture inside your mouth to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for 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 consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Parkway Towne Crossing. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
