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. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
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 will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their 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. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. 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 not caught early, this could cause pain. 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 your child visit Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental for their first dental appointment at 18 months or younger. We can ensure that there aren’t any structural or overbite issues. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.
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. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with 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. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Regular checkups are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It becomes a source for pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes With 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.
Oral sedation may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
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.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to 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 also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers to the teeth, and soft tissue refers to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. There are many types of lasers available.
The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near Stonebriar Country Club Estates.
There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. 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 are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings blend with the natural tooth color and are attached to the tooth by a bonding agent. This prevents them falling off. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
Composite resin is used to make white fillings. It can easily be color-matched with your natural teeth, so it’s almost invisible. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. 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 are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.
Since composite tooth-colored filling material remains bonded to the tooth it is fixed into, your oral health does not depend upon the adhesive joining of two dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
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 is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Stonebriar Country Club Estates.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. 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 intended to produce a relaxed state 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 can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring 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 remains immobile and must be closely 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. 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Stonebriar Country Club Estates.
Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. This is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
We’ll clean the tooth and seal it to prevent germs from infecting it in 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 has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Stonebriar Country Club Estates since many years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. 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 are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It is painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
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. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
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.
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. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
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,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
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 Stonebriar Country Club Estates 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 types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical research. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to 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.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Dentures must be held in place by 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 partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
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 constructed with a metal framework which 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.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
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: 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 or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.
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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported overdenture is composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.
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 Stonebriar Country Club Estates. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
