Common Treatments We Offer Here

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.

 

We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.

 

 

Dental exams

 

Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We’ll also be looking for other dental issues that could impact 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. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.

To see if the patient’s jaw is in trouble, we will put a mouth mirror on top. We will then move it around so that we have a clear view inside the mouth. 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 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.

 

Children’s dentistry

 

Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. 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. 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 be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. The child will be assisted to relax in one or more of our comfortable treatment chairs. After a basic exam, an x-ray will be taken.

After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their remaining teeth.

Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. 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 happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.

 

Teeth Cleaning

A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.

Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.

We use different tools and water sprays to clean the teeth of our patients. Sometimes, we also 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 they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.

The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. A curette or scaler are hand-held instruments that can be used to remove small pieces of plaque. 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 they don’t do this treatment at regular intervals, the patient may suffer accelerated tooth decay or gum disease. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.

 

Wisdom tooth extraction

 

Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

Some dentists and oral surgeons advocate wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth don’t currently cause issues as a method to avoid future difficulties. Regular checkups and x-rays can allow issues to be predicted.

Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:

  • Impacted wisdom tooth

  • Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw

  • You are stuck in your jaw bone

  • It becomes a source for pain

  • Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.

  • Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.

  • Cyst development 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 you are not very complicated, you may be able to go home the same day as your wisdom teeth removal. However, you will need someone else to drive you around and stay with you 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.

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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.

 

 

Laser Dentistry

 

Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.

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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely 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.

In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry has been around for a while, but only recently was it applied to gum treatments.

Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. It is possible to determine the appropriate laser for a particular application by looking at wavelengths in nanometers. This is possible with different types of lasers.

There is less need for sutures with soft tissue lasers. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. Because of the laser’s antibacterial action, there is less chance of getting bacterial infections. The laser’s antibacterial effect speeds up wound healing and allows for tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.

There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. 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. 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. For soft tissue procedures there is a risk of damage to surrounding tissues because of stray beams.

Call us today for a consultation to see if laser dental care is right for your needs. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Trinity Mills area.

 

Tooth White Fillings

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 today are the most preferred type of 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 preferred over silver or gold because they last longer.

White fillings can be made of high-strength, composite resin and can easily match your natural tooth color. This makes them virtually invisible. Composite tooth-colored fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver 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 better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 gives composite tooth-colored fillings a greater durability and strength than other types.

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 filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your chewing ability.

Ceramic materials can also be used to make tooth-colored fillings. This material has the same compressive strength as tooth enamel and is available in crowns. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Trinity Mills vicinity.

 

Sedation dentistry

A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep 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 by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. 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). You can get this level of sedation by injecting the medication or intravenously using a drip under your arm.

Deep Sedation is a form of sedation where the patient is often unaware of what’s happening and must be monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.

Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient must remain immobile and be 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. 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 has all levels sedation dentistry available in Trinity Mills.

 

Root canal treatment

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 is not the best thing for you. In fact, long-term use of antiinflammatory medication can cause damage to your kidneys.

Root canal treatment removes the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.

Endodontic treatment can be performed in as little as two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.

We will clean the tooth and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. In certain cases, a crown can be used to protect the tooth.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Trinity Mills since many years.

 

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is simply a cap that’s applied to a tooth in order restore its size, strength, form, and 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. Crowns can be made from full ceramic, porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain depending on the needs.

Porcelain crowns can be used to cover large or complex root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, such as chips or cracks. 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. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. 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 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.

A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.

A bridge replaces one tooth or more that 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.

 

Dental implants

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 act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.

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.

Most dental implants are made of titanium. This allows them to be integrated into the body and not be recognized as foreign objects. Dental implant placement has improved significantly through technology and scientific research.

Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.

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 Trinity Mills offer dental implants. All implants are not created equal.

PubMed.gov reports that more than 220 implant brand names have been identified. These brands are produced by approximately 80 manufacturers. The implant materials vary, have different surface treatments, come in different forms, sizes and shapes. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made of titanium or titanium alloys perform clinically well in surgically prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly 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, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.

Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.

 

Dentures

Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).

Also known as false teeth or dentures, dentures are devices that can replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.

Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].

Different types of dentures include:

* Traditional complete full dentures

* Partial dentures

* Custom dentures

* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture

* Snap-in dentures

* Snap-on dentures

* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. [1]

 

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 made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .

The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.

The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.

It’s worn most of the time as an orthodontic retainer. But, sometimes, it can be taken out at night and while you eat.

Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.

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 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.

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.

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 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, a leading provider of dentures near Trinity Mills, is the best. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
