Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental 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 can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. 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 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.
There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your 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.
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. 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 skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully 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.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
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. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small pieces of plaque. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate 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 extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. 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:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes with orthodontic treatment
In most cases, patients are given a local painkiller to numb the area as well as a sedative that relaxes them to reduce any discomfort.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very 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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. 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 been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. 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 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. Stray beams could cause tissue damage 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 Preston Village – Apartments area.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually 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 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 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 tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Preston Village – Apartments vicinity.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
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 is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Preston Village – Apartments.
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. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in 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 and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Preston Village – Apartments over the years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It is painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
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,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
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. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Preston Village – Apartments offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. 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 is committed to providing the best in modern 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.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
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 are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.
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.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
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’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 can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top implants.
An implant-supported, overdenture is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are 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 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.
