Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
To check if the patient has a problem with their jaw, we will place the mirror on top of the patient’s mouth and move the mirror around to get a complete view of the inside and teeth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
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.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.
Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
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 that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. 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 and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to 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. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. 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. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for 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 teeth
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease may develop.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.
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.
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 has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily 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.
At first dentists only treated hard tissues because it was believed lasers couldn’t be used on soft tissue. Laser dentistry is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. There are many types of lasers available.
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. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
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. 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 find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Pitman Creek Estates offering laser treatments.
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).
Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. 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.
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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
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 colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. 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. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Pitman Creek Estates region.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
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 results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient must remain immobile and be 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. This level of sedation will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Pitman Creek Estates area.
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. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth will be filled with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Pitman Creek Estates since years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s very painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
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 of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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.
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. This “artificial teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
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.
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. 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 in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Pitman Creek Estates offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. 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. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard 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. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
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 done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
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, also known as a “temporary partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when 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 fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
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 you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
Implant-supported overdentures are made up of two parts. A metal frame snaps onto dental implant posts, and a replacement tooth (or teeth) attached to it.
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, a leading provider of dentures near Pitman Creek Estates, is the best. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
