Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We offer complete care, unlike many other area providers. 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. The dentist will also examine your teeth to see if they require any treatment. We will also examine the patient for any other problems that might affect their oral 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 cause many health problems and even lead to tooth loss. This is vital because it can cause other health issues. This is done by inserting a periodontal probe between each patient’s tooth and measuring how deep it goes. This gives us an indication of how much gum tissue has been removed between the teeth. We also check for inflammation and bleeding.
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 their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. This can cause pain if it’s not found early on. It is possible to find cavities right near the gum line. These need to be treated promptly to prevent further problems.
Tooth decay and cavities can occur in children at any age, even as young as two years. 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 communicate with your child during the appointment to explain everything and allow them to take part in the process. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. 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. For your child’s protection, it may be a good idea to apply dental sealants or fluoride treatments. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. 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!
A dentist cleans, scales, polishes, and removes calculus and plaque from patients’ teeth.
Dental hygienists must be in close contact to patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. There are many types of instruments, including drills, scrapers, and brushes. The instruments can also be used to polish the teeth using special polishing solutions and disks. It is crucial to remove all plaque, calculus, and tartar from patients’ teeth before scaling and polishing can commence.
The latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker and more comfortable cleaning. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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.
To prevent gum disease, dental hygienists must remove tartar from patients’ teeth. This treatment must be done at regular intervals to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. That’s why we do our best to make regular dental visits as easy as possible for the whole family.
Wisdom tooth extraction refers to the surgical removal one or more wisdom teeth. These are permanent adult teeth that rest at the back end of your mouth. A wisdom tooth can be removed by an oral surgeon or dentist.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
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 toward neighboring teeth or the back of the jaw
Stuck in jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Trapped food can cause decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation in the wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist 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.
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.
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. At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, our dentist is also a top oral surgeon so you will not need to be referred out.
The practice of dental lasers is the use of lasers to treat a wide range of oral diseases. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
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. Lasers can be used to cut (ablation), vaporize (excited plasma) or remove 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. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
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. There are many types of lasers available.
The need for sutures is reduced 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. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed in water cells, causing them to evaporate quickly. This causes pain and loss of elasticity for the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. Stray beams can cause damage to the surrounding tissues in soft tissue procedures.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one the most renowned dental clinics in Villages of Indian Creek 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.
Composite fillings are the current preferred filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Many people opt for composite fillings rather than silver and gold fillings because they are more durable.
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 restorations are bonded to the tooth instead of sitting on top of it, like gold and 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, 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 composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type 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.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. They bond well to both tooth enamel and composite resin, in addition to being strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Villages of Indian Creek office.
Sedation dentistry makes it possible for your dentist to perform complex dental procedures without any difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by 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. 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. This combination is sometimes combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughter gas). However, this medication may be administered intravenously by drip in the arm or via injection.
At Deep Sedation, the patient is usually unaware of what’s going on and has to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This level of sedation may be used for trauma cases or complex surgical procedures.
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 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. However, this level of sedation requires you to stay in the dental clinic under observation for longer than any other form of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the few dental practices offering all levels of sedation dentistry near Villages of Indian Creek.
Endodontics, also called a root canal or a root graft, is a treatment that saves a tooth with a decayed tooth. This involves eradicating the infection and preventing any further damage. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to 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 hand, eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
Endodontic treatment is performed in between two and three sessions by an endodontist. We utilize local anesthesia to numb the region so that you feel no discomfort. 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. The tooth is then filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Villages of Indian Creek for 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 are available in a variety of materials, including ceramics, porcelain, resin, stainless steel, and precious metals like gold. 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 Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or those that have had extensive restorations. 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. Individuals who have had a root-canal procedure and wish to avoid more extensive work in the future may find this a good option. Crowns are also able to be used on cosmetic or damaged teeth due to cracks or chips.
A dental inlay or crown may be an option for you. It’s painless. 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.
A bridge may be recommended if the tooth is too far removed for a crown. A bridge can be used to replace missing teeth or repair facial structure. It may also 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
A bridge replaces one tooth or more that are missing. 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 is a substitute for the root a missing tooth. This “artificial root tooth” then supports a bridge or replacement tooth.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration” refers to the integration of dental implant and jawbones.
A majority of dental implant components are made from titanium. This allows them become part of your body and can be recognised as a foreign item. Over time, technology and studies have made it possible to greatly improve the results of dental implant placement.
Dental implants can be used to substitute one, several or all of a patient’s natural teeth. 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 Villages of Indian Creek offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov has identified more than 220 implant brands, which were produced by around 80 manufacturers. The implants are made from different materials, undergo different surface treatments and come in different shapes, lengths, widths and forms. 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. 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. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Based on the case, dentures can be partial or full and are generally more affordable than implants.
Sometimes called false teeth, dentures can be used to 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. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. For missing teeth, dentures or dental implants may be used.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and complete) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These are overdentures, which can be combined with dental implants. 
Traditional complete full denture: The traditional complete full denture, also referred to as a standard or conventional fixed full denture, is usually the least expensive and most durable 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 constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth left.
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 fits snugly and comfortably better than standard dentures.
Snap-in dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
They can be used as a no-prep alternative to traditional teeth because they don’t need to have their lines relined.
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 learning how to adjust and insert your denture yourself, you will no longer need to visit the dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: A partial denture “fixed” to a tooth that is eventually attached to dental implants.
Because it rests on top, implants, an implant-supported denture will usually provide a more secure fit than other types.
An implant-supported overdenture consists of two parts. One is a metal frame which snaps onto the dental implants posts and another part that attaches to that frame with a replacement tooth.
Overdentures are usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work together with you to find the perfect combination of functionality, looks, and affordability for your dentures.
