Common Treatments We Offer Here

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.

 

We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.

 

 

Dental exams

 

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 examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their 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 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 will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.

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 make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.

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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe 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.

 

Pediatric dentistry

 

Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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 first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious 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 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. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then 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 may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.

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!

 

Dental Cleaning

Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.

Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.

We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.

The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

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 may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

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.

A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:

  • Wisdom teeth that have been impacted

  • Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • Becomes a cause of pain

  • Becomes a cause of periodontal disease

  • Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth

  • Cyst formation around 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.

Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.

If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there for 24 hours.

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.

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’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.

Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other 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 also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. 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 for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. This is possible with different types of lasers.

There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.

There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration 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. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one of the best dental clinics near Ridgeview At Panther Creek that offers specialized laser treatments.

 

Tooth White Fillings

Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. 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. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.

White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. 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 are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.

Composite tooth-colored dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type 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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.

Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.

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 Ridgeview At Panther Creek region.

 

Sedation dentistry

Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. 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 is used to make the patient feel relaxed and 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It is often 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 results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex 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 is used for severe dental procedures such as complex oral surgery, extractions of large numbers of teeth, 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Ridgeview At Panther Creek.

 

Root canal treatment

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 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 it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.

We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The tooth is then filled with composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Ridgeview At Panther Creek since many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.

Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of 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. 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 will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from future damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. 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. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.

The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair 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 is also how our dentist creates false teeth.

The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth are missing. 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.

 

Dental implants

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.

Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.

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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.

Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.

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 Ridgeview At Panther Creek offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.

PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. 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. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term 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. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.

 

Dentures

Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.

False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. [1]

 

Traditional complete denture: Also known as standard or conventional fixed full, the traditional complete denture is the most durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting type of full dental work.

It is taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.

The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.

Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.

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 is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.

Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.

They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.

Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.

After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.

Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.

Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of implants.

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 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 Ridgeview At Panther Creek. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
