Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
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 dental exam, our dentist will look for any signs that the patient may be experiencing pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s 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 can cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. 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. We will also examine the gums for signs of inflammation or bleeding.
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 this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. 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 talk to your child throughout the appointment, explaining what is happening and how they can take part in it. 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.
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.
We recommend that you establish healthy habits as soon as possible. This will help to ensure your child’s teeth are strong and free from any potential problems. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. 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.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. Handheld instruments, such as a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller fragments of plaque. 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
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.
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 towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
In most cases patients are given local anesthetic to numb the area and a sedative to relax them so they won’t feel any pain.
In rare cases where patients are very anxious, oral sedation may be advised instead.
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.
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.
While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry is a less painful option than drills and other non laser equipment.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers the teeth, while soft tissue is the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. The laser energy is absorbed into the cells, causing them to rapidly evaporate when applied to the gums.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has existed for some time but was only recently applied to gum treatment.
Scientists have discovered that the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Bleeding is reduced in treated soft tissues as the laser stimulates blood clotting.With some treatments, anesthesia isn’t necessary. Laser’s antibacterial effects reduce the chance of developing 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 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. 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 could cause tissue damage during soft tissue procedures.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Two Worlds – Keller Springs offering laser treatments.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other 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 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 are often preferred over gold and silver fillings due to their durability.
White fillings are made from a high-strength resin composite that can be easily matched to natural teeth. Composite tooth-colored fillings actually adhere to the tooth, rather than sitting on top of it like silver and gold fillings do. 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 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 can restore fractured molars and are therefore better for restoring chewing ability.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental will assess your eligibility for composite resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Two Worlds – Keller Springs.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It entails putting the patient into a sleep-like condition using medication, hence it is also known as sleep dentistry.
Minimal Sedation can be described as the lowest level of sedation. This ranges from almost unconscious to a state that is similar to being awake. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It is used to alleviate any fears that patients may have. To do this, nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas), is administered through a mask.
Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. This is often 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.
Deep Sedation leaves the patient unaware of the situation and must be closely monitored by staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
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 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. 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, one of the few practices that offer all levels in sedation dental care near Two Worlds – Keller Springs.
Endodontic treatment (also known as a root-canal) is a procedure to save a tooth from further damage and infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. 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 is a way to eliminate the infection. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. The local anesthesia we use to numb your area is painless. Dental x-rays might be required to locate the affected tooth.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. 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 Two Worlds – Keller Springs since many years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
Dental crowns come in a range of materials including porcelain, ceramic, resin, stainless-steel, and precious metals such as gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Crowns are also available in full ceramic or porcelain or a mix of metal and porcelain depending on your needs.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. These crowns can be used for damaged teeth, 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 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 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 very painless. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. While you wait for your permanent crown to be completed, you may also get a temporary crown.
The dentist may recommend a bridge for teeth that are too far away from a crown. A bridge is a way to replace missing teeth and correct facial structure. There are many types. Most include crowns placed on either one or both sides of the missing tooth. Sometimes, there is also a “pontic” (false) between the anchoring tooth. These are also known as abutment and lateral teeth. This false tooth can also be created by our dentist in the office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth are missing. 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.
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. 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 that is attached to the jawbone is similar to a natural tooth in that it stands on its own and has excellent stability. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants and jawbones.
Dental implants made up of most of titanium are considered to be part of the body. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can replace any number of teeth, including all or some. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 Two Worlds – Keller Springs offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 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 from titanium, titanium alloys and other titanium materials perform well clinically in properly prepared bone. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly into bone. A large number of manufacturers’ claims regarding superiority due to design characteristics do not reflect sound clinical scientific 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. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us.
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. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants or dentures [may be used to replace missing teeth].
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) 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 made by your dentist with an impression of the gums and teeth on each side of your mouth .
The roof or palate is built up with a metal framework that supports the wire clasps used to hold it in place.
Partial denture: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
Clasps attach to the remaining tooth teeth to keep partial dentures in their 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: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make the snap-in dental dentures in a lab. He or she will first make a plaster cast of your jawline and gums. After that, the denture is fitted inside your mouth.
You won’t have to visit your dentist again after you learn how to adjust and place the denture.
Overdentures: An “fixed” partial denture which eventually attaches to dental implants.
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 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 Two Worlds – Keller Springs. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
