Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. All aspects of general dentistry are covered, including cosmetic, pediatric and smile design and reconstruction as well as surgical procedures.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. 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. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. 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.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. We will talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. The basic oral exam will be followed by an xray.
After this, we will talk with you about your child’s dental health and give a recommendation on how to protect the teeth they have remaining.
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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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 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 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.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster 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.
To prevent gum disease, dentists need to clean the teeth of tartar or plaque. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the 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 may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
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. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth extraction refers to a surgical procedure that removes a wisdom tooth. It can be performed due to numerous complications like:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease can result.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.
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.
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 laser was commercially adopted by clinical dental practice in 1989 to treat tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft 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. There are many types of lasers available.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. These procedures can cause less discomfort than traditional treatments.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.
For a free consultation, contact us today to find out if you are a candidate for laser dentistry. We are the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near The Chase At Stonebriar.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. 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 are the current preferred filling material. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. 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 less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly 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 and durability than is possible with other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as 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 The Chase At Stonebriar office.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. 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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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 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, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in The Chase At Stonebriar.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. 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 has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near The Chase At Stonebriar since many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. 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 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 may also be used for cosmetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth.
A dental crown or inlay may be suitable for anyone, including children. It is very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. 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. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth 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.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
Dental implants are the best treatment option for individuals who have lost teeth, or cannot engage in healthy oral care due to missing or extracted teeth.
Many dentists near The Chase At Stonebriar offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. Many manufacturers make claims about superiority based on design characteristics. However, these claims are not supported by long-term clinical 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 guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
In most cases, dentures, either partial or complete are cheaper than implants.
False teeth are also called dentures. They replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The metal frame supports the wire clasps that hold the roof or palate in place.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
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: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
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 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.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
An implant-supported partial denture is more secure because it rests on top 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 usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the The Chase At Stonebriar. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
