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.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. 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 checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or 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 use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If not caught early, this could cause pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends children visit us for their first time when they are around 18 months. This is so we can check for structural problems and overbite issues. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.
We recommend that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. 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 is the surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. 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. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the 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 sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
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. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or 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.
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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace broken-down or damaged molars. They are vulnerable to fracture due to their lack of support from natural chewing forces. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
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 are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
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 Pasquinellis Parker Estates.
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 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. 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation 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 can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
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 must remain immobile and be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Pasquinellis Parker Estates.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to 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 hand, eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The tooth will be filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Pasquinellis Parker Estates for years.
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 come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. 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.
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 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 easy to do. 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.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and 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 false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges are available after your remaining teeth have been removed (such as during a procedure for a dental implant), or after you have lost teeth due either to periodontal disease/injury.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next 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 that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
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 Pasquinellis Parker Estates offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to 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.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Implants or dentures can 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
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
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 is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.
Overdentures can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Pasquinellis Parker Estates. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
