Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their 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 also check for inflammation and bleeding.
To see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the mouth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
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. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure 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 will communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing 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 your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker 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. 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.
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. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
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.
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:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes with orthodontic treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
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.
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.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
Two main types are used in laser dentistry: hard tissue procedures and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard 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 discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. 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. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Southwest Carrollton offering laser treatments.
Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
White fillings are constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 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 colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
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 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 Southwest Carrollton area.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. 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’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.
Moderate sedation is intended to produce a relaxed state and sleep during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia is the most powerful form. This sedation does not cause any pain. The patient is completely unaware that anything is happening. The patient cannot move and must be continuously 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. 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 Southwest Carrollton.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Southwest Carrollton for years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be 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. 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s very painless. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
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 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 replaces the missing tooth. 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains 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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
For those who have lost or cannot take care of their oral health because of missing or extracted teeth, dental implants may be the best option.
Many dentists near Southwest Carrollton offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. 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. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. Many claims that a particular manufacturer’s design features are superior to others are not supported by solid clinical scientific research. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined 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 made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .
The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while 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’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
Your dentist will make your snap-in dentures in a dental lab by taking a plaster model of your jaw and gums, then fitting the denture inside your mouth to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for 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.
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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Southwest Carrollton, is the best. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
