Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
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 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 will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
We will examine the patient’s mouth and look for signs of gum disease. Gum disease can cause tooth loss and other health problems. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 them to be healthy and not have any problems in their mouths.
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. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural 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 make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental examination. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. An initial exam of the mouth will be done, then an x ray.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the 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. If our staff detects a problem, we’ll develop a customized cure plan that takes your kid’s greatest care and comfort into account. 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 dental hygienist cleans teeth, performs scaling and polishing, removes plaque and calculus from patient’s teeth.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. There are many instruments available, including various types of drills, brushes, scrapers and scrapers. They also polish patient’s teeth with special polishing solution and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. 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 removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. 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 is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely anxious.
If the procedure is straightforward, you can return home the same day. But you will need to have someone drive you and be there for 24 hours.
After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
In comparison to drills and other non-laser equipment, laser dentistry may provide a more comfortable treatment choice for a variety of hard or soft tissue treatments.
There are two main types for laser dentistry: soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can also be used to treat decay by cutting, excitation (vaporizing), or sterilizing teeth. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. 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. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment 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. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause tissue damage in soft tissues.

These days, rather than silver or gold fillings there are many 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.
Composite fillings today are the most preferred type of filling material. 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 constructed of a high-strength composite resin that can be easily color-matched to your natural tooth, making it virtually undetectable. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. Composite fillings are much less likely than gold to break or fall out. Tooth-colored fillings are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.
Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace broken-down or damaged molars. They are vulnerable to fracture due to their lack of support from natural chewing forces. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Tooth-colored fillings can be made out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to 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. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the The Plaza At Chase Oaks vicinity.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. 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 by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. This 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 leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by 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 will be completely incapacitated and need to be closely monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the The Plaza At Chase Oaks area.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. This does not help. Taking long-term anti-inflammatory drugs can cause kidney damage.
Root canal treatment removes the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment 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.
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 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 Plaza At Chase Oaks over the 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.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.
Porcelain Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and 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.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further 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 can also help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It is very 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.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. A bridge can help you replace missing or damaged teeth, correct facial structure, and 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
A dental implant is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
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.
Majority of dental implants are made out of titanium. They can become part and parcel of the body without being recognised as foreign objects. 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. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near The Plaza At Chase Oaks offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. 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. Implants can be manufactured in certain areas of the globe without any demonstration that they adhere to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will ensure you receive the highest quality standard in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right 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. You can replace missing teeth with a bridge that is permanently fixed. Dentures or dental implants [may be used for the replacement of missing teeth].
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable type of full denture.
It is created by your dentist from an impression taken of the gums or teeth on each of your cheeks.
The roof or palate is supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Cluts attach to remaining teeth to secure partial dentures.
It is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be 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.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
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 is made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
Overdentures are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
