Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a top-rated practice in the Northern Dallas Area.
Our practice is able to take care of all your needs, unlike other providers in the area. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
Our dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine if there are any signs of pain or discomfort. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also inspect the teeth for any other oral problems that may be affecting the patient’s 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 tooth loss and other health problems. 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 be looking for signs of bleeding or inflammation.
We will place a mirror over the patient’s mouth to check for any problems. Then we will move it around to give us a clear view of their teeth. We want to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
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 not caught early, this could cause pain. Sometimes, cavities may be found very close to the gum line and need to treated quickly to prevent them from becoming a bigger problem.
Cavities and tooth decay in children can develop at any time, even when they are just two years old. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends your child visit Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental for their first dental appointment at 18 months or younger. We can ensure that there aren’t any structural or overbite issues. If your child is well taken after, their primary teeth may last a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend that they visit us at least twice each year to ensure that there are no major problems.
We will ensure your child feels comfortable before our team begins the adolescent dentistry examination. 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 mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
Healthy habits are important for your child’s health. They will ensure that their teeth remain strong and prevent future problems. 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 love to see the smiles on your kids’ faces when they visit our office. We look forward to helping them stay healthy for many years!
A dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth of patients and removes any plaque or calculus.
Dental hygienists are in close contact with their patients. They must be knowledgeable about their job as they are responsible to clean the teeth.
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. Before polishing and scaling can be started, it’s important to eliminate all plaque and calculus.
The most recent hygienic tools are used for more efficient and comfortable cleaning. We use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses high speed vibrations and a spray of lubricating fluid to gently remove the 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 the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate tooth decay. We make it as easy for the whole family to have regular dental visits.
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.
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.
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 towards neighboring teeth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease is caused by this.
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Development of cysts around wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Patients are usually given a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help them relax so that they don’t feel any pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very 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.
After your wisdom teeth extraction, you should be able return to work within a day. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two to three days.
While many dental offices can remove wisdom teeth, there are some cases that require an oral surgeon to treat moderately impacted wisdom teeth. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental also has an excellent oral surgeon, so there is no need to have your case referred.
Dental lasers are used to treat a variety of oral conditions. The first commercial use of lasers in clinical dentistry was for treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry may be more comfortable than other equipment such as drills or other non-laser tools.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. 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.
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 the wavelengths at which lasers absorb the most energy are dependent on the tissue and application. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. This is possible with different types of lasers.
Soft tissue lasers require fewer sutures than traditional ones. Treatments of soft tissue lasers reduce bleeding because the laser stimulates clotting. In some cases, anesthesia may not even be required. The laser’s ability to reduce bacteria means that there are fewer chances of getting bacterial infection. Wounds heal faster and tissue regeneration is possible. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
There are certain disadvantages associated with soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed by water in the cells causing them to evaporate rapidly, resulting in pain and lack of elasticity of the gum tissues. Also, lasers are only used on the tooth being treated in hard tissue procedures. 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 are one the most renowned dental clinics in Watters Crossing offering laser treatments.
Today, instead of silver or gold fillings, platinum and other alternatives are available. You can now place amalgam fillings (also called composite resin fillers), which are strong and natural-looking.
Composite fillings are today’s most popular filling material. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth and are held in place by a bonding material that prevents them slipping off. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 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 outperform silver because they are stronger, more resistant to breaking or cracking, and virtually 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 and durability than is possible with 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 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 out of ceramic materials that are also used for crowns, which have the compressive strength to tooth enamel. They are strong and can bond well to tooth enamel as well as to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. This is a modern filling that we offer in our Watters Crossing office.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without difficulty. This involves putting the patient in a sleep-like state using medication. It is also known by sleep dentistry.
Minimal sedation is the most mild level of sedation. It ranges from a feeling that you are awake to almost unconscious. It is used to make the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. It is used to calm fears and anxiety. The patient is able to breathe through a mask, or face piece, that is similar to a clear plastic bags.
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. 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 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, which is the most powerful form dental sedation, doesn’t cause pain to the patient and leaves them totally unaware of what’s happening. The patient remains immobile and must be closely monitored by trained staff. This method is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. This level of Sedation requires that you stay longer in the dental office under observation than any other.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides all levels of sedation dentistry within Watters Crossing.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. When you have a toothache, the first thing people do is take painkillers. 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 is a way to eliminate the infection. Root canal treatment is very simple, but it can take multiple sessions.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. To enhance protection, a dental crown can be used in some cases.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a dentist who has provided endodontic care for patients in and around Watters Crossing over the years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. It is essentially a crown that covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The material used is determined by the extent of decay present on the tooth, as well as the physical properties of the material. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. They are also ideal for teeth that have undergone some type of damage, such as cracks or chips. Porcelain crowns are more commonly requested by patients who desire an aesthetic restoration, since they are used to strengthen a tooth and not repair it.
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 be used to repair or replace cosmetic teeth that are damaged or compromised by chips or cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Our dentist will examine your mouth and create a crown that can be worn after a week based on the impressions you provide. A temporary crown might be created while the permanent one takes shape.
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. Although there are many types of bridges, they all include crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, with a “pontic” (false tooth) placed between the anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth. Our dentist can also create false teeth in our office.
The bridge replaces each tooth in the area where one or more of your teeth 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. Dental implants are used to replace the root of a damaged tooth. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
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 of 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. 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 in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
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 Watters Crossing offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. Different materials are used to make implants. The surface treatments vary and the shapes and sizes of the implants can be different. The dentist can in theory choose among more than 2,000 implants in a given patient treatment situation. Implants made out of titanium and titanium alloys are clinically proven to work well in bone that has been surgically prepared properly. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. 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 is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. Call us to make an appointment and find out if implants are right fit for you.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than implants depending on the case.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. They are removable appliances that can support or alter the color or shape your gums and lips.
For dentures to stay in place, it is important that you have healthy gums. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
Different types include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures [which are] used in combination with dental implants. 
Traditional full full denture. This type is often the most cost-effective and longest-lasting.
It is done by your dentist by taking impressions of your gums, teeth and mouth on each side.
The roof, or palate, is constructed with a metal framework which supports the wire clasps.
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 is most often worn as an orthodontic retainer. However, it can be removed at night or while eating.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
It fits more comfortably and securely than standard dentures.
Snap-in or snap-in dentures: Snaps-in dentures work by using suction.
Because they don’t require reline, they can be considered a “no prep” option to traditional dentures.
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.
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 composed of two parts: a metal frame that snaps onto the dental implant posts and a replacement tooth or teeth attached to that frame.
Overdentures can be made in a dental clinic. The technicians will use models (molds), which are scanned of your jaw, gums and teeth to create the appliance.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental offers dentures for patients living in Watters Crossing. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
