Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, is one of the most highly rated practices in the Northern Dallas.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact the patient’s oral health.
In addition to looking at the patient’s teeth we will also be looking for signs that indicate problems with the gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This helps us know how much gum tissue is left in between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
To determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. We may also find cavities very close to the gum line that need to be treated soon before they become a bigger problem.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. 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.
Before our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
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.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. 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 to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists work closely with patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the debris. 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.
In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. Patients who don’t have regular dental visits may experience gum disease or tooth decay. Our goal is to make regular dental appointments as easy for everyone.
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.
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.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck in the jawbone
Pain becomes a source of discomfort
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes with 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 Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely 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.
Your wisdom tooth extraction should allow you to return to work on the same day, however strenuous activities should be avoided over the next two to three 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.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
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 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). When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
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. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. This is possible with different types of lasers.
The need for sutures is reduced with soft tissue lasers. Because the laser stimulates blood flow, bleeding is less likely in soft tissue. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. 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. The laser can only be used on the tooth that is being treated for hard tissue procedures. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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 are today’s most popular 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 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 dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold fillings. Composite fillings tend to stay in place longer than traditional gold fillings, and are therefore less likely for them to come loose. 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 fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. This allows for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
Tooth colored fillings can also be used to restore broken-down molars, which are susceptible to fracture because they lack the support that natural chewing forces provide to teeth located in the front of your mouth. Tooth colored fillings can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring 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. They bond well to both composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the The Trails Of Glenwood vicinity.
The dentist can perform any complex dental procedure with no difficulty using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
Minimal Sedation (or minimal sedation) is the least severe form of sedation. The state can range from being almost conscious to being awake. It is used to allow the patient to relax and be comfortable. Its primary purpose is the relief of fear. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is administered through a mask or facepiece that looks similar to a clear bag.
Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It may be 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 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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 will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within The Trails Of Glenwood.
Endodontic therapy, also known by the root canal, involves saving a tooth that is infected and preventing it from getting worse. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. This doesn’t actually help, and taking anti-inflammatory medication long term can be bad for your kidneys and doesn’t address the real issue.
Root canal treatment is a way to eliminate the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays can help to diagnose the tooth that is infected.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near The Trails Of Glenwood since many years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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.
Dental crowns are made of a variety materials like ceramics and porcelain as well as stainless steel and precious metals. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. 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.
A dental crown will replace your old filling material and will allow your tooth to become stronger as it is now protected from 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 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 painless. A dentist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a crown. Then, he or she will make the necessary adjustments and place it in your mouth. 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 may help replace missing teeth, repair 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. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. Bridges may be used after you’ve had any remaining teeth removed (such a during a dentist’s implant procedure) or after your teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease.
A dental implant, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. The dental implant is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “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. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Trails Of Glenwood offer dental implants. Not all implants are created equally.
According to PubMed.gov, More than 220 implant brands have been identified, produced by about 80 manufacturers. Implants are made of different materials and have different surface treatments. They come in different sizes, shapes, and widths. In theory, the dentist can choose from more than 2000 implants depending on the patient’s treatment needs. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Various surface treatments are currently being developed to improve the capacity of a more rapid anchorage of the implant into bone. 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 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.
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. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined 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 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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
A custom denture: This is a denture that is created from an impression of your upper and lower jaws using a special material.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
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 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 you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for 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 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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a premier provider of dentures for patients near The Trails Of Glenwood. We will work closely with you to create the best dentures for your partial or full mouth.
