Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental ranks high in the Northern Dallas area.
Unlike many other area providers, we are able to provide full care for every need under one roof. From general dentistry to cosmetic, pediatric, smile design and reconstruction, and surgical procedures.
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 will also check for other issues that could affect the patient’s dental health.
In addition to the patient’s teeth, we will also look for any signs that show problems with the patient’s 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 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 to make sure their teeth are healthy and that there are no problems with the surrounding muscles.
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 not caught early, this could cause 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 our team of highly skilled dentist professionals begin the adolescent oral examination, we will ensure that your child is comfortable and relaxed. We will speak to your child during the appointment and let them know what’s going on so that they are able to participate. They will be assisted in relaxing in one of our pleasant and comfortable treatment seats. A basic mouth exam will then be conducted, followed by an x-ray.
We will then talk to you about your child’s dental health, and make a recommendation for how to preserve the remaining teeth.
We recommend that your child establish healthy habits early on. They will help ensure that his or her teeth stay strong and prevent any problems later. Your child may benefit from dental sealants and fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We will accommodate any special requests such as music playing during an appointment or providing a child-friendly distraction.
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 dental hygienist is a professional who cleans teeth, scales and polishes patients’ teeth, and removes plaque and calculus.
Dental hygienists keep in touch with patients. They need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
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. They polish the patient’s smiles with special polishing liquid and disks. Before scaling and polishing can begin, it is essential to clean out all plaque and calculus.
We use the most modern hygienic equipment for faster, more comfortable cleanings. Ultrasonic cleaning devices, such as the one we use, employ high-speed vibrations in combination with a lubricating agent to gently remove particles. The smaller particles of plaque will be removed using handheld instruments, such a scaler and curette. 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. Regular dental visits are made as easy and convenient as possible for the entire family.
Wisdom tooth extraction involves the surgical removal or replacement of one or more wisdom tooth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Even if impacted tooth are not causing problems, some dentists or oral surgeons suggest wisdom tooth removal to prevent future problems. It is possible to predict problems by having regular checkups or x-rays.
A wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure used to remove a wisdom teeth. There are many complications that can occur, including:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled toward the neighboring tooth or back of jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
Becomes a cause of pain
Periodontal disease may develop.
Because of trapped food, decay can occur in neighboring teeth.
Cyst formation around wisdom teeth
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.
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.
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.
Although many dentists can remove wisdom, some situations may require the intervention of an oral surgeon. 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. For the treatment of tooth tissues, clinical dentistry adopted it commercially in 1989.
Laser dentistry might be more convenient than traditional drills and other equipment.
Laser dentistry uses two types of procedures: hard tissue and soft tissues. Hard tissue refers specifically to the teeth while soft tissue refers primarily to the gums. Lasers can be used on teeth to remove decay, vaporize (excited Plasma), and cut (ablation). Laser energy can be used to quickly evaporate water from the cells of the gums when used on them.
In the beginning, dentists only treated hard tissue as it was believed that lasers couldn’t treat soft tissue. So laser dentistry has been around for some time, but just not applied to gum treatment until recently.
Scientists discovered that different tissues and applications have different absorption wavelengths for lasers. 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.
With soft tissue lasers, there is a lesser requirement for sutures. As the laser stimulates blood circulation, bleeding is decreased in treated soft tissues. 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. These procedures are less painful than traditional treatments.
There are disadvantages to soft tissue procedures. Laser light is absorbed quickly by water in cells. This causes the cells to evaporate rapidly. This can cause pain and dehydration of the gum tissues. Another factor to consider is that with hard tissue procedures, the laser is only applied to the tooth being worked on. There is an increased risk of injury to surrounding tissues from stray beams during soft tissue procedures.
Call us today to arrange an examination to determine if laser dentistry is right in your case. We are one of the best dental clinics near Whispering Hills that offers specialized laser treatments.
Instead of gold or silver fillings, there are now platinum and other options. The high-strength, natural-looking fillings known as amalgam fillings can be placed today rather than silver or gold (also known as composite resin fillers).
Today’s preferred filling material is composite fillings. They’re designed to blend in with your teeth’s natural color and are secured to the tooth using a bonding agent that prevents them from falling off. Composite fillings can last longer than traditional silver or gold fillings.
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 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 are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost 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 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 can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
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.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is available to help determine if you are a candidate for composite-resin fillings. We are one of the leading providers of this new filling in Whispering Hills.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient under sedation using medication.
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 for the patient’s comfort and relaxation. 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 primarily used to induce sleep and relaxation during dental treatment. It is often combined with Nitrous Oxide (or laughing gas). The medication to achieve this level may be administered intravenously or by injection.
Deep Sedation results in the patient being completely unaware of all that is happening. This must be continuously monitored by trained staff. This level is often used in severe trauma cases and for long-term surgical procedures.
Anaesthesia is the strongest form of dental sedation. It doesn’t allow the patient feel any pain and leaves them completely unaware. The patient is completely immobile and needs to be constantly monitored by trained staff. This method of sedation is reserved for serious dental treatment such as the extraction of a large number of teeth, complicated oral surgery and extensive root canal work. This level of sedation will require you to remain in the clinic for longer periods of time than with any other type of sedation.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has all levels sedation dentistry available in Whispering Hills.
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. 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 eliminates the infection. Although the procedure is simple, it can be quite time-consuming.
A dentist performs endodontic treatments in two to three sessions. To ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort, we use local anesthesia. To identify the diseased tooth, dental x-rays may be taken.
To prevent infection, we will clean and seal the tooth. We’ll then fill the tooth with composite. A dental crown may be used in certain cases to enhance protection.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been providing endodontic treatments for patients in or around Whispering Hills for years.
A crown, which is a technique to strengthen or improve the form of teeth, is called a restorative procedure. 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 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 are often used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or large restorations. These crowns are ideal for any teeth that have suffered damage such as chips or cracks. Since the treatment is primarily used to restore a damaged tooth rather than strengthen it, porcelain crowns often have a higher demand among patients who want an aesthetic restoration.
A dental Crown will replace your existing filling material. This will give your tooth strength and protection from any 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 help with cosmetic issues such as chips and cracks.
A dental crown, or inlay, may be suitable to anyone, even children. It is painless. Based on your impressions, our dentist will examine you and make a crown that can fit within a week. 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 is used to replace one or more missing teeth. 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. In turn, this “artificial tooth root” supports a replacement tooth or bridge.
A dental implant attached to the jawbone can stand alone on its own, and it has great stability. “Osseointegration,” is the integration between dental implants 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 in tooth replacement is to restore functionality as well as aesthetic appeal.
Implants are the best option for people who have lost their teeth or can’t maintain healthy oral health due to missing or removed teeth.
Many dentists near Whispering Hills offer dental implants. But not all implants are created equal.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 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 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. Some implant sales are made in parts of the World without demonstrating compliance to international standards.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental guarantees that you will receive the most advanced implant technology. Give us a call for an appointment to see if implants are right for you.
Full or partial dentures tend to be more affordable than 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.
To keep dentures in place, healthy gums are essential. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. Implants or dentures can be used to replace missing teeth.
There are many types of dentures:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* These overdentures can be used in conjunction 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 taken by your dentist using an impression of your teeth and gums on each side.
The roof or palate is made up of a metal frame that 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.
Attach clasps to the remaining teeth to hold partial dentures in place.
It’s most commonly worn like an orthodontic retainer. You can also take it out when you are eating or at night.
A custom denture can be made by taking an impression from your upper or lower jaw using a special materials.
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.
They can be considered a “no prep” alternative to traditional dental dentures because they do not require relining.
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.
After you learn how to adjust and insert the denture yourself, you won’t need to go back to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant support.
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 made of two parts. The metal frame snaps onto the dental posts and the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to it.
Overdentures are often made in a dentist’s lab. Here, technicians create models (molds of your gums and jaw) to make the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental provides dentures to patients in the Whispering Hills. We’ll collaborate with you in designing the most functional, attractive and affordable dentures for your full- or partial teeth.
