Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been rated as one of the best dental practices in the Northern Dallas region.
We are able, unlike many area providers to offer all your needs under one roof. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
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 look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
In addition to checking the patient’s teeth, we also check for any signs of problems with their gums. Gum disease may lead to other health issues, including tooth loss. By placing a periodontal probe between each of the patients’ teeth, we can feel how deep the tissue goes. 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 determine if there is any problem with the patient’s jaw, we will place an eye mirror on top and move it around. This will allow us to view the inside of their mouth. We want to ensure that the patient’s teeth and surrounding muscles are healthy.
We may also use radiographs or take x-rays to look for decay. If this is not detected quickly, it can cause severe pain. There may also be cavities near the gum line, which should be treated immediately to avoid further damage.
Even at two years of age, cavities and tooth decay can be present in children. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental recommends that your child’s first visit is made when they are at least 18 months of age. This will allow us to check for any structural or overbite problems. If properly taken care of, your child’s primary tooth can last a lifetime. However, we recommend seeing them at least twice per year to check for any problems.
Before our skilled team of dental professionals begins the adolescent examination, we will make sure that your child feels at ease. We’ll talk to your kid throughout the appointment and explain what’s happening so they can participate in the process. Our treatment seats are comfortable and inviting, so they can relax. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by 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 establishing healthy habits early, as they will help your kid’s teeth stay stronger and avoid problems later on. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Our staff will determine if there is a problem and develop a plan to fix it. We may be able to accommodate any special requests you might make, such a play of music during the appointment, or a diversion that is child-friendly.
We are happy to see your smiley faces and hope to keep them healthy for many more years.
A dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienist’s work in close contact with patients. Because they are responsible for cleaning the teeth, they need to be very familiar with their work.
We clean patient’s teeth with different types of instruments and water sprays, may also use special toothpaste. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. 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 latest equipment in hygiene allows for quicker 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. Smaller pieces of plaque can be removed with handheld instruments such as a scaler or curette. For optimal dental health, a dental hygienist may recommend you return every six months for teeth cleaning.
In order to prevent gum diseases, the dental hygienist must clean out tartar and plaque off patients’ teeth. If the treatment is not done regularly, patients may develop gum disease or accelerate 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 is the removal of one or several wisdom teeth. They are also known as permanent adult tooth. An oral surgeon or dentist may perform wisdom tooth extraction.
Oral surgeons and dentists recommend wisdom tooth extraction, even if the impacted teeth aren’t causing any problems. This is to prevent future complications. Checkups and x-rays can help to identify potential issues.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Impacted wisdom teeth
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It can cause pain
Periodontal disease occurs when this happens.
Due to trapped food, causes decay in neighboring teeth
Cyst formation around the wisdom tooth
Interferes in orthodontic treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral sedate may be an option in some cases, such as when patients are very 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.
There are many dentists that can remove wisdom. However, if the wisdom tooth or other teeth are severely impacted, an oral surgeon may be required. 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. It was first commercially available in 1989 for the treatment of tooth tissue.
Laser dentistry can be more comfortable than non-laser equipment and drills for treating a wide range of hard and soft tissue conditions.
The two main types of procedures used for laser dentistry are hard tissue and soft tissue procedures. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily 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 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 laser wavelengths with the highest absorption are different for different applications and tissues. To determine which laser is best for a given job, the wavelengths can be measured in nm. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
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. 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. This procedure may cause less discomfort than traditional methods.
There are disadvantages 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.
For a free consultation, contact us today to find out if you are a candidate for laser dentistry. We are one of the best dental clinics near West Carrollton that offers specialized laser treatments.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. Amalgam fillings, also known as composite resin fillers, are stronger and more natural-looking than silver and gold.
Composite fillings have become the 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 have a higher durability rating than gold or silver.
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 fillings stick to the tooth and don’t sit on top like gold or silver fillings. Composite fillings will not fall out as often as gold fillings. 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 tooth fillings stay bonded to the teeth they are placed into. Your oral health does not depend on the adhesive joining dissimilar materials. This allows composite fillings to be stronger and last longer than any other type of fillings.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can also help to restore damaged molars. 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 composite resin and tooth enamel, and are also strong.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. We’re one of the top dental providers of this modern filling in the West Carrollton area.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to complete any complicated dental procedure without 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’s used to help the patient relax and feel 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. It may be combined with Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas. This medication can be administered intravenously via a drip or injection to your arm.
Deep Sedation can cause the patient to lose consciousness and is subject to constant monitoring 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 is only used for more serious procedures, such as extensive root canal treatment, complicated oral surgery, and the removal of large amounts of teeth. 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 offers all levels of sedation dentistry in the West Carrollton area.
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. The first thing most people do when they get a toothache is to take painkillers. 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 hand, eliminates the infection. Although it is a simple procedure, it may take several sessions.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area so you do not feel discomfort. Dental xrays are taken to determine the condition of the tooth.
We will clean the tooth, seal it and prevent any germs from getting into it during the first session. We will then fill the tooth using composite. For certain cases, we may use a dental crown to provide additional protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near West Carrollton since many years.
A crown is a restoration technique that strengthens or improves teeth. A crown is basically a cap used to cover a tooth to restore its size and strength. It also enhances its appearance.
There are many options for dental crowns. They can be made from ceramics, porcelain or resin. The extent of tooth decay and the material’s physical properties will determine the material that is used. The material options for crowns vary depending on whether they are full ceramic or porcelain.
Porcelain crowns often cover teeth that have been through large-scale restorations or root canals. They can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by 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.
The dental crown replaces the old filling material. It will make your tooth stronger and protect it from 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.
An inlay or crown on a tooth may be suitable for everyone, even children. It’s easy to do. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
If a tooth is too far gone for a crown, the dentist may suggest a bridge. 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. This is also how our dentist creates false teeth.
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 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 teeth root” is used to support a bridge or replacement tooth.
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” refers to the integration of dental implant 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.
Implants can be used to replace one, many, or all of a patient’s teeth. The purpose of dental implant dentistry is to restore functionality and beauty.
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 West Carrollton offer dental implants. Implants are not all created equal.
PubMed.gov lists more than 220 brands of implant, from around 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. A dentist could theoretically choose between more than 2000 implants for a patient with a particular treatment need. Implants made from titanium or titanium alloys seem to perform well clinically in correctly surgically prepared bones, regardless of slight variations in shape and form. There are many surface treatments that can be used to enhance the speed of anchorage. A substantial number of claims made by different manufacturers on alleged superiority due to design characteristics are not based on sound and long-term clinical scientific research. Implants are sold in some areas of the world with no evidence of compliance to any international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is committed to providing the best in modern implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Dentures, whether full or partial tend to be a more affordable option compared to implants (depending on the case).
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable appliances that support and change the shape or color of your gums, lips, and mouth.
Healthy gums are required to keep dentures in their place. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partials and 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.
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: This is a temporary partial denture that can be used when only a few of your teeth are left.
The clasps attach to the remaining dentures to fix partial dentures.
You wear it most often as an orthodontic retainer. Sometimes, however, you can take the device out at night or during meals.
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 dentures – Snap-in dentures can be held in place with suction. No clasps are required.
They are considered a “no-prep” alternative to traditional dentures, because they do not need to be relined.
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.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures: An overdenture is a “fixed” partial denture that eventually gets attached to dental implants for support.
Implant-supported overdentures are usually more stable and secure than other partial dentures because they rest 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 usually made in a dental lab, where technicians use models (molds) of your jaw and gums to make the device.
