Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
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.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral 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 allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums 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 check that their teeth and muscles are in good health.
We can also take radiographs or Xrays for many reasons. One reason is to check the very back for tooth decay. If not caught early, this could cause pain. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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 properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
We love to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. 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. It is very important to remove all plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth before they can start scaling and polishing.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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 the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A dentist or an oral surgeon may perform a wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontist 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 Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
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.
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.
Many dental practices can remove wisdom teeth but in cases where the wisdom tooth or teeth are moderately impacted, you may need an oral surgeon. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
Lasers are used in the treatment of a wide variety of oral diseases. 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.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove 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. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. You can choose from a variety of lasers.
Sutures are not required 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. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow 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 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. A second factor to be aware of is the fact that the laser is not used for soft tissue procedures. It is only used for the tooth being treated. 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 the leading dental clinic offering specialized laser treatment near The Lakes On Legacy Drive.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Composite fillings are today’s most popular 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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. Tooth colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the The Lakes On Legacy Drive region.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. However, the medication used to achieve this level of sedation may be administered by injection or intravenously through a drip in your arm.
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, the most powerful type of dental sedation allows the patient to not feel pain, and they are completely unaware of the situation. 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. 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 Lakes On Legacy Drive.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. The truth is that this doesn’t work. Long-term anti-inflammatory medication can lead to kidney problems and cause permanent damage.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected 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. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around The Lakes On Legacy Drive over the 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 are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. You can also get crowns in porcelain, full ceramic, or a mixture of metal and porcelain depending upon your requirements.
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 will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any future damage. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. 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 easy to do. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While your permanent crown is being made, you might be given a temporary one.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also 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. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. 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.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement 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” 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. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Lakes On Legacy Drive offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 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 from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant 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 sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
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.
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].
You can choose from:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.
Partial Denture: When some of your natural teeth are missing, a partial denture (also known as a temporary partial or partial denture) is used.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
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: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require 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 dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your 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.
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 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 provides dentures to patients in the The Lakes On Legacy Drive. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
