Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact 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. 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 allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want to make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.
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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. 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 team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
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 your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. 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 are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of 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 polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster 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. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no 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 teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
It can cause pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontic treatment
Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.
Oral sedation is sometimes recommended in cases of extreme anxiety.
You can go home on the same day as your wisdom tooth extraction if it is uncomplicated, but you’ll need someone to drive you and stay with you for 24 hours.
The day following wisdom tooth extraction you can return to work, but it is best to avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three additional 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.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. 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.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. 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). When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
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 discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. You can choose from a variety 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. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
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 can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We are one of the best dental clinics near Sam Moon Center that offers specialized laser treatments.
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 the current preferred 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 can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. Composite tooth color fillings that match the tooth’s color actually stick to it. They don’t just sit on top of it like gold or silver. 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 outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and 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 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 fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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 may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Sam Moon Center office.
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 (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. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored 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 is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Sam Moon Center area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. 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 eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We will then fill the tooth using 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 Sam Moon Center for years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and 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. 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 are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s easy to do. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. 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 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.
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 act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. 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,” also known as the integration or fusion of dental implants with jawbones, is a term that describes the process of integrating dental implants with 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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near Sam Moon Center offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 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. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant 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. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. To find out if implant technology is right for you, give us a call.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
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 done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.
It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
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.
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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Sam Moon Center. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
