Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We will also examine the teeth to know if they need to be fixed in any way. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. This involves inserting a probe called a “periodontal probe” between each tooth. We then feel how deep it penetrates. 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.
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 make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. This can lead to severe pain if not treated promptly. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just 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. 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 the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
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 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. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. 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 love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
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. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. Smaller pieces of plaque can be removed with handheld instruments such as a scaler or 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. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction is the surgical removal of one or more wisdom teeth, which are known as permanent adult teeth that sit at the back of your mouth on top and bottom.If a wisdom tooth cannot expand because of overcrowding (impacted wisdom tooth), you’ll almost certainly need to have it extracted. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgery to remove a wisdom or ‘wisdom tooth’ due to complications such:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease can result.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
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 sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very anxious.
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.
It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most 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.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser 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 used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
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. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. 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. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. The laser’s antibacterial action speeds wound healing and encourages tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.
Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in The Centre At Preston Ridge offering laser treatments.
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.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. 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 fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or 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 are superior to silver because they are more durable, less likely to break or crack, and are virtually undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored dental fillings remain bonded to each tooth. This means that your oral health will not be affected by two different materials being joined. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
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. This is a modern filling that we offer in our The Centre At Preston Ridge office.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. 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 used to promote relaxation and sleep during 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 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 remains immobile and must 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. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in The Centre At Preston Ridge.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
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 x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth is then filled with composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around The Centre At Preston Ridge for years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and 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. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from further damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It is painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. After you have had all of your teeth removed, such as during a dental procedure to place a bridge or after you have lost any teeth due to injury or periodontal disease, you can also use a bridge.
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 act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. 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 of dental implants and jawbones.
Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 The Centre At Preston Ridge offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.
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, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term 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. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used 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: A partial denture, also known as a “temporary partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their place.
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’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-ins: Snap-ins can be attached by suction. There is no need to attach 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.
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.
Usually, an implant-supported overdenture provides a more secure and stable fit than other types of partial denture because it rests on top of implants.
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 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 offers dentures for patients living in The Centre At Preston Ridge. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
