Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and 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’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect 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. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. 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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
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. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite 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 skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. 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.
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.
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. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
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!
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. They also polish patients’ teeth using special polishing products and 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. Our ultrasonic cleaning equipment uses high-speed vibrations combined with a lubricating spray in order to gently remove any debris. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
Dental hygienist need to remove tartar and plaque from patient’s teeth in order to prevent gum disease. If they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontic treatment
In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
If it’s not too complicated, you can go home the same night as your wisdom tooth extraction. However you’ll need someone who will drive you and stay with that person 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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
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 might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove decay. The laser energy is quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. 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.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. 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 Spring Park area.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).
Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. They’re designed to blend in with your teeth’s natural color and are secured to the tooth using a bonding agent that prevents them from falling off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.
Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace broken-down or damaged molars. They are vulnerable to fracture due to their lack of support from natural chewing forces. 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 out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Spring Park.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate sedation is primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
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 may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient will be completely incapacitated and need to 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. 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 Spring Park.
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. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments 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 and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The tooth will be filled with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Spring Park since years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It’s essentially a cap that’s used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, strength, and form while also enhancing its 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. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
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. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It’s painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Spring Park offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. To increase the anchorage speed of the implant into the bone, various surface treatments have been developed. 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, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Implants are more expensive than dentures (depending on what case it is). Dentures, partial or full, tend to be cheaper than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable type of full-denture.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth.
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-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 secured by suction and do not require clasps.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
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 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 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.
