Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. You can get general dentistry, as well cosmetic, child, smile design, reconstruction, and other procedures.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
In order to see if there are problems with the patient’s jaw, we will place a mouth mirror on top of their mouth and move it around so we can get a full view of the teeth and the inside of the mouth. We want to check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
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 not caught early, this could cause pain. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
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 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 mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
After this, we’ll talk with your child about their dental health and make a recommendation as to how to save the teeth that are still there.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. 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 delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
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 need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
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 wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Wisdom tooth with an impact
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes 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 your wisdom teeth extraction is simple, you can drive home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive and stay with 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.
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 also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. 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.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. 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. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. 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 could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Shores of Eastern Hills area.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other 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 have become the preferred filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping 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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. You are far less likely to have a composite filling fall out, which can be a problem with 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 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 color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Shores of Eastern Hills office.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.
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 allow the patient to relax and be 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It is often 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 results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term 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 is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Shores of Eastern Hills.
Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. 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 it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the 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. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers endodontic services to patients in Shores of Eastern Hills for many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or 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. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. 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 any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against 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 can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.
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 might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more teeth are missing. Bridges can be made after you have had your remaining teeth extracted (such as during an implant procedure), or after you lose teeth due to periodontal disease.
Dental implants are a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone. It is then allowed to attach with the bone in a few months. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
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” refers to the integration of dental implant 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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s 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 Shores of Eastern Hills 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. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given 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. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available 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.
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can 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 required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. 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 partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
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 created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.
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-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
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.
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.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest 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 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 is a premier provider of dentures for patients near Shores of Eastern Hills. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
