Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
During a dentist exam, we will check for any signs that a patient might be suffering from pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. Gum disease can lead other health problems, and may even cause tooth death. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. Also, we will look out for bleeding gums or inflammation.
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 ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to 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 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. 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’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.
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. As your child gets older, a fluoride treatment and dental sealants might be recommended to protect their teeth. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We may also accommodate any special requests you might have, such as playing music during the appointment or providing a child-friendly diversion.
We are always happy to see your kid’s smiling faces in our office, and we look forward to keeping them healthy for years to come!
Dental hygienists clean and polish teeth and remove plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also use special toothpaste. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. 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.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove 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.
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. 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.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure for the removal of a ‘wisdom’ tooth due to various complications such as:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards the neighboring tooth or back side of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causing decay of neighboring teeth due to trapped food
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes With Orthodontic Treatment
Most patients receive a local anesthetic to numb their area and a sedative for relaxation to relieve any pain.
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.
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.
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 is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. 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 quickly absorbed by water and evaporated when it’s applied to gums.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered the absorption wavelengths of lasers are not the same for all tissues or applications. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are some downsides to soft-tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. Stray beams could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one of the best dental clinics near Towns Of Chapel Hill that offers specialized laser treatments.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. Instead of silver or gold fillings, you can place the natural-looking and high-strength amalgam fillings. Also known as composite resin fillers.
Composite fillings are the current preferred 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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored dental fillings adhere to the tooth rather than sitting on top, as silver and gold 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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth colored fillings may also be used for the restoration of broken-down and fractured molars. Tooth-colored fillings are strong enough to fix a fractured or damaged molar and can therefore be used for chewing.
Colored tooth fillings can also be made of ceramic materials, which are the same material used in crowns. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the Towns Of Chapel Hill area.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
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 make the patient feel relaxed and 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This level of sedation is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly 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. You will need to be monitored for a longer time if you are using this type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Towns Of Chapel Hill.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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 on the other side eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean and seal your tooth to keep germs out. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides endodontic treatment for patients living in and around Towns Of Chapel Hill since years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The amount of decay and physical properties of the material determine which material is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by cracks or chips. Patients looking for aesthetic restorations will often prefer porcelain crowns because they are more used to treat a damaged tooth than to strengthen it.
A dental crown will replace any old filling material. Your tooth will be stronger because it is protected against further damage. This can be a great choice if you’ve had a rootcanal and don’t want any more work. Crowns can be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. 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 is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types, but all of them include crowns on one side or the other of the missing tooth. The “pontic”, which is a false tooth placed between the anchoring teeth (also known as abutment), can also be used to replace the missing tooth. The dentist also makes these false teeth in his office.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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 is a surgical fixture inserted into the jawbone. The bone will connect to the implant over the next few months. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
Attached to the bone, a dental crown is a permanent tooth that can be used to replace a missing tooth. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Implant placement results have been improved by technology and science.
Implants may be used for the replacement of one, several, or all teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
For people who are missing teeth or cannot care for their mouths properly due to loss or extraction, dental implants can be the best option.
Many dentists near Towns Of Chapel Hill offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term clinical scientific research. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available 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 removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
There are several types of dentures available:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures are used in conjunction with dental implant. 
Traditional full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and durable 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 partial denture,” is used when some of your teeth remain.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
Custom denture: A custom denture is made from an impression of your upper or lower jaw, using a special material.
It fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in Dentures: Snap in dentures are secured by suction and do not require clasps.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest on top of implants.
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 can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Towns Of Chapel Hill. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
