Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact 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. 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 will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
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. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to 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.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural 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 our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.
We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 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 use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Many dentists and surgeons advocate wisdom teeth extraction even though impacted teeth may not cause any issues. This is a way to avoid future problems. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next 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 also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. The laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
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. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. There are many types of lasers available.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Plano area.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. 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 today are the most preferred type of filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Composite fillings are preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.
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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth colored fillings are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Plano vicinity.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel 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 designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. This 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 level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Plano.
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 removes the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We will then fill the tooth using 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 Plano since 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.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. 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. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from 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 be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges may be used after you’ve had any remaining teeth removed (such a during a dentist’s implant procedure) or after your teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “Osseointegration” is the integration of dental implants 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. 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 is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
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 Plano offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
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. A lot of the claims made by different manufacturers about superiority because of design characteristics are not supported with long-term 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. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
The roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
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 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.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets 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 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 are typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
