Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. We offer general dentistry as well as cosmetic, pediatric, smile reconstruction and surgery.
Our dentist will inspect the mouth for signs and symptoms that may indicate pain or discomfort. We’ll also check the teeth for any signs that they may need to be treated. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect 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 can cause tooth loss and other health problems. We do this by placing a periodontal probe in between each of the patient’s teeth and feeling how deep it goes. This will allow us to see how much gum tissue is still between each tooth. We will also be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
In order to see if there are problems with the patient’s jaw, we will place a mouth mirror on top of their mouth and move it around so we can get a full view of the teeth and the inside of the mouth. We want to make sure that their teeth are staying healthy and the muscles around them are not causing any problems.
There are many reasons why we may take radiographs or X-rays, but the main reason is to check for decay in the back of your mouth. If it isn’t detected early, this can lead to pain. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Children can have tooth decay and cavities at any age, even as soon as two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental advises bringing your kid in for their first visit when they are 18 months old or younger so that we may ensure there are no overbite issues or structural problems. Because your child’s primary teeth might last a lifetime (if cared for and treated), we recommend bringing them in at least twice a year to ensure there aren’t any major issues.
Before the team of experienced dental professionals starts the adolescent exam, we will ensure your child is at ease and secure. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. 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.
Healthy habits should be established early to help your child’s smile stay strong and prevent problems later. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants may be advised to protect the teeth as your child grows older. Our staff will assess the problem and create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your child’s comfort. 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 delighted to see your child’s smiles in our office.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They are responsible in cleaning teeth.
We use different kinds of instruments, water sprays and special toothpaste to clean our patients’ teeth. Instruments include many different types of brushes, drills, scrapers etc. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. For example, an ultrasonic cleaning device we use employs high-speed vibrations and a lubricating spray to gently remove debris. 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.
Gum disease is preventable by dental hygienists removing tartar and plaque from patient teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
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.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. 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:
Wisdom teeth that have been impacted
Angled toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Immobilized in the jaw bone
Pain can become a problem
Periodontal disease can result.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes 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 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.
You should be able to return to work the day after your wisdom tooth extraction, but strenuous activities should be avoided for two or 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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental’s dentist is also an oral surgeon and you will not be required to go elsewhere.
Dental lasers can be used to treat many oral diseases. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the 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.
Hard tissue and soft tissue are the main types of laser dentistry. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be applied to teeth for cutting (ablation), excitation (excited plasma), and removing decay. When used on gums, the laser energy is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly.
At first, dentists treated only hard tissue because it was believed that lasers could not treat soft tissue. Laser dentistry is a technology that has been in use for some time. However, it was not widely used until recent times to treat gum disease.
Scientists have discovered that laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. You can use the wavelengths in nm to determine which laser is suitable for your application. In this respect, there are many different types of Lasers.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. 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 are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
Soft tissue procedures have some drawbacks. 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. Remember that laser light is only used to treat hard tissue procedures. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.

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.
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. Composite fillings can be matched to your natural teeth by being matched with their natural colors. A bonding agent is used to secure them to the tooth to prevent them falling off. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and silver fillings. Composite fillings are less likely to fall out than gold fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be more easily detected than silver. They are more durable, less likely break or crack and they are virtually invisible.
Your oral health doesn’t depend on the adhesive joining two different materials. Composite tooth-colored filling material stays bonded to the tooth where it is placed. This allows for stronger and more durable fillings than with other types.
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 filling material is strong enough to restore a fractured molar, and is therefore a better choice for restoring your 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. These materials are strong and bond well to composite resin as well as tooth enamel.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental can help you determine if your case is a good one for composite resin fillings. We are a leading provider of this type of modern filling in the Villages of Greenway Park vicinity.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. It involves the use of medication to put the patient in a state of sleep. This is also called 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 allow the patient to relax and be 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 mainly aimed at producing a state of relaxation and sleep during dental treatment. It can be combined with Nitrous Oxide or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to 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 level of sedation can be used in cases of trauma or extensive surgical procedures.
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 method of sedation can be used to treat serious dental issues such as complicated or lengthy root canal surgery, large-scale extractions and complex oral surgery. 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 of Greenway Park.
Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal, is a procedure that involves saving a diseased tooth by eradicating the infection and preventing further harm. Most people take painkillers to relieve 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 on the other side eliminates 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. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental x-rays can be used to identify the problem 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. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Villages of Greenway Park since many years.
A crown can be used to strengthen teeth or improve their appearance. A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to improve its strength and appearance.
Dental crowns can be made in many materials such as ceramics, porcelains, stainless steels, and precious metals like Gold. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. Your needs may dictate whether crowns are made of full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain restorations and root canals can often be covered with porcelain crowns. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. 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. If you have recently had a root canal, this could be an excellent option to save money in the long-term. 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’s 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. A temporary crown may be made while the permanent one is being constructed.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge may help replace missing teeth, repair facial structure, and improve your bite. 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. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge is used to replace each tooth on either side of the space where one or more 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.
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are placed in the jawbone. They then connect with the bone for a few weeks. Dental implants act as a replacement for the tooth root that has been lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
Attached to the jawbone, a dental implant is very similar to a natural teeth in that it can stand on its own and maintains excellent stability. “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. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants may be used to replace one, several, or all of a patient’s teeth. Dentistry’s goal is to replace teeth that are functional and beautiful.
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 Villages of Greenway Park 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. Many surface treatments are currently being used to improve the ability to anchor the implant more quickly 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. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ensures that you have the best possible quality in implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
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. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
Dentures must be held in place by healthy gums. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial-full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: This is the most durable and cost-effective type of full denture.
Your dentist will take an impression of your gums and teeth.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture – A partial denture is one that only some of your teeth have been removed.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
Custom denture: A custom-made denture is one that is made using an impression of the upper or lower jaw and a special material.
It is more secure and comfortable than a normal denture.
Snap-in dentures: Snap-in dentures are held in place by suction, with no need for clasps.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
Your dentist will create your snap-in dentures by making a plaster mold of your jaw and gums. Then, the denture will be fitted inside your mouth to ensure it fits perfectly.
Once you’ve learned how to insert and adjust the denture, you won’t have to return to the dentist to make adjustments.
Overdentures (or overdentures): An overdenture can be a “fixed” partial denture, which is attached to dental Implants for support.
A implant-supported overdenture, which rests on top a number of implants, is usually more secure and stable than other types.
An implant-supported dental overdenture has two parts. It consists of a metal frame that snaps onto dental implant posts and a replacement or additional tooth attached to that frame.
Overdentures are typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, a leading provider of dentures near Villages of Greenway Park, is the best. We’ll work with you to design the very best combination of function, looks and affordability for your full or partial dentures.
