Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still 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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
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 it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.
Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. 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.
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 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. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s 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 hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with 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 also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and 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. 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.
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. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. 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 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 neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
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.
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.
While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. 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. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We’re one of the top dental clinics offering specialized laser treatments near Savoy of Josey Ranch.
There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. 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 are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.
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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.
Tooth colored fillings may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
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 Savoy of Josey Ranch vicinity.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.
Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
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 can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient must remain immobile and be 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the Savoy of Josey Ranch area.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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. 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 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 Savoy of Josey Ranch since years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and appearance.
Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. Because porcelain crowns are used to restore damaged teeth rather than strengthen them, they are often more in demand from patients who wish an aesthetic restoration.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against 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 is painless. 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 can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our 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.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. 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.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.
Many dentists near Savoy of Josey Ranch offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific research. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming 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.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
Because they don’t need to be relined, they are considered an “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted 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: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported overdenture consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.
Overdentures usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
