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 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. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This allows us to determine how much gum tissue remains between each tooth. We also check for inflammation and 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 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 it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. You may also discover cavities close to your gum line. This needs to be treated as soon as possible to avoid a larger problem.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. 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. Your child’s primary teeth can last a lifetime if they are properly cared for. We recommend that you bring them in twice a year to make sure there are no major problems.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will be available to talk with your child throughout the procedure and provide information so that they can fully participate. We will assist them in relaxing in one our comfy treatment seats. 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.
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. 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 can also accommodate special requests, such as music or a diversion for children.
We love seeing your smiling faces and look forward to seeing them in the future.
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. They are responsible for the cleaning of teeth.
We clean patients’ teeth using different types of tools and water sprays. Some may even use special toothpaste. Many types of instruments include brushes, drills, and scrapers. 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.
Modern hygienic equipment is used to provide faster 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. You can also use handheld instruments like a curette and scaler to clean smaller pieces 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 make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
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 wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
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 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:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst development around 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 may be recommended for patients who are anxious in rare instances.
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.
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 has a highly skilled oral surgeon who can perform wisdom teeth removals.
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.
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 directly to the teeth. Soft tissue refers solely to the gums. When lasers are applied to the teeth, they can be used for cutting (ablation), vaporizing (excited plasma), or removing decay. The laser energy is rapidly absorbed by the water in the cells when it is applied to gums.
Because lasers were not able to treat soft tissue, the dentists initially only treated hard tissue. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. For determining which laser is right for an application, you can use wavelengths in the nm range. You can choose from a variety 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. The chance of bacterial infections is decreased due to the laser’s antibacterial effect. Lasers can speed up the healing process and allow for tissue regeneration. The procedure can be less painful than traditional ones.
There are some downsides 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. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in 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 Villages At Willow Bay offering laser treatments.
There are other options available today, including platinum, which is a better choice than gold and silver fillings. The amalgam fillings are a high-strength and natural-looking alternative to silver or gold. They can also be used as composite resins fillers.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. Composite fillings are made to match your natural teeth color. They attach to the tooth with a bonding agent to prevent them from falling out. Composite fillings have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
Composite resins with high strength are used to create white fillings. They can be easily colored to match the natural color of your tooth. 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, which are much more durable than silver, are less likely to break, crack, or fall out, are nearly 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 for greater strength, durability, and stability than other types of fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings are also available to repair broken-down molars. These molars are more susceptible to breaking because they lack the natural chewing force that provides support to the teeth in your front. Tooth color filling material is stronger than traditional tooth-colored ones and can thus be used to restore chewing function.
Tooth colored fillings can be made from ceramic materials that are also used in crowns-a material with the compressive strength of tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Call Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental to see if you’re a good candidate for composite resin fillings. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Villages At Willow Bay region.
Your dentist can complete complicated procedures with ease using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used by the patient to allow them to feel comfortable and relax. The primary purpose of nitrous oxide is to reduce fear in the patient. To achieve this goal, a mask or facepiece similar to a clear plastic bag is used to administer it.
Moderate sedation is designed to induce relaxation and sleep during dental treatments. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation is used for severe surgical procedures and trauma cases.
Anaesthesia, the most powerful form of dental sedation, does not allow the patient to feel pain at all, leaving them completely unaware of what’s going on. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This type of sedation should only be used for serious dental treatments such as extractions of many teeth, complex oral surgery, or 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 provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Villages At Willow Bay.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. People often resort to painkillers when they have a toothache. It doesn’t help. Long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications can cause kidney damage and may not address the root problem.
Root canal treatment on the other side eliminates the infection. It’s a very straightforward procedure but may require multiple sittings.
In two to three sessions, an endodontist can perform endodontic treatment. You will not feel any pain when we apply local anesthesia. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem tooth.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. The composite will then be used to fill the tooth. 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 Villages At Willow Bay over the years.
A crown is a restorative technique for teeth that aims to strengthen them or improve their form. 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 degree of decay on the tooth and its physical properties determine the material to be used. 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. They are also great for treating damaged teeth such as chips and cracks. Patients who are looking for an aesthetic restoration will be more interested in porcelain crowns, as they can only be used to repair a damaged tooth.
A dental crown can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future damage. This is a great option for people who have had to have a root canal done and want to avoid further work. Crowns can also be used on cosmetic teeth that have been damaged or compromised due to chips or cracks.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It’s easy to do. The impressions taken by you will be used to create a crown which can be fitted after one week. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
The dentist may suggest a dental bridge if a tooth cannot be restored with a crown. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. There are many types and styles of bridges. All include crowns placed on either the side of the missing or damaged tooth. Additionally, a “pontic”, or false tooth, is placed between anchoring teeth. Also known as abutment, teeth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges can be made after you have had your remaining teeth extracted (such as during an implant procedure), or after you lose teeth 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. The dental implant acts as a substitute for the root of a lost tooth. 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,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
The majority of dental implants are composed of titanium, which allows them to become part of the body without being recognized as a foreign object. 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. The goal of dentistry’s tooth replacement is to restore both functionality and attractiveness.
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 Villages At Willow Bay offer dental implants. Implants are not all 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. In theory, a dentist can select from over 2,000 implants to treat a patient. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. 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 are, in some parts of the world, manufactured and sold with no demonstration of adherence to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. We can help you decide if implants might be right for your needs.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
The devices used to replace missing or damaged teeth are called dentures. These removable appliances can be used to change or support the color, shape, or color of your gums and lips.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. A bridge is a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials & full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective 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.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
Most often, you wear it much like an orthodontic retainer, but sometimes you can take it out at night or when eating.
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 can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
Your dentist will make your dentures in a dental laboratory. First, he’ll take a plaster model from your jaw and gums. Next, he’ll fit the denture inside your mouth.
After learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
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 usually are made in dental laboratories. There, technicians use molds (molds), to model your jaw and gums.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
