Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
During a dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. To determine if any teeth need to be repaired, we will also inspect them. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s 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 can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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 that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major 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. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by 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. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. If we detect a problem, we will develop a customized treatment plan that ensures your child’s safety and comfort. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
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. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces of plaque. 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. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate 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 removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth extraction can be performed by either an oral surgeon, dentist, or both.
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 are important to detect potential problems and allow for x-rays.
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
Stuck within jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any 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.
It is possible to return to work after wisdom tooth removal, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at most two or three days.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers only to the teeth and soft tissue 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.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. 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 effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. The laser light is absorbed into the cells by water, which causes them to evaporate quickly. This results in pain and a loss of elasticity in the gum tissues. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.
To find out if laser Dentistry is right for you call us today and schedule an appointment. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the The Colony area.
These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many options. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin 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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and 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 better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth colored filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring 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.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in The Colony.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation is the lightest level of sedation, ranging from a state akin to being awake to one that is almost unconscious. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the The Colony area.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. Most people take painkillers to relieve a toothache. 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 eliminates the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The tooth is then filled with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around The Colony over the years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The tooth’s condition and the material’s physical characteristics will dictate the choice of material. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. 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.
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 to anyone, even children. It is very painless. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
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. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more 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.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to connect with the bone over a few months. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. This artificial tooth root supports a new tooth or bridge.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “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. Technology and study have advanced over time to improve dental implant placement outcomes considerably.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
Individuals who have lost or cannot maintain healthy oral hygiene due to missing or extracted teeth are best served by dental implants.
Many dentists near The Colony offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Different surface treatments are being developed in order to increase the ability of an implant to be anchored into bone more quickly. 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 can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere 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.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances used to support or change the color or shape of your lips and gums.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. The bridge can replace the missing teeth. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) 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 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, 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.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It’s designed to fit more securely and comfortably than a standard denture.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
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 snap-in dentures for you in a dental lab. This involves taking a plaster of your jaw, gums and then fitting the denture into your mouth to make sure it is a perfect fit.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.
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 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.
