Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. 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. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. We want to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. 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.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. 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. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
Then, we will discuss your child’s oral health with you and offer a recommendation about how to keep their teeth healthy.
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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. 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 love to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
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. 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. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces of plaque. 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. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
You are stuck in your jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes in 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.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
You should be able to return to work the day after your wisdom tooth extraction, but strenuous activities should be avoided for two or three days.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. Clinical dental practice adopted it commercially in 1989 for treatments on tooth tissue.
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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for 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. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

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 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 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 will not fall out as often as 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 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 can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. Tooth colored filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. 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. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Ridgeline Townhomes area.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate Sedation is mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It can be 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 can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring by trained staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.
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 remains immobile and must be closely 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. 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 Ridgeline Townhomes.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in 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 has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Ridgeline Townhomes for years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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 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 are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth 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 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 tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration” is the integration of dental implants and jawbones.
A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Ridgeline Townhomes 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. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. 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 will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that 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.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and 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 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: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
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 denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, 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 can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.
Your dentist will create your snap-in dentures by making a plaster mold of your jaw and gums. Then, the denture will be fitted inside your mouth to ensure it fits perfectly.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
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 together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
