Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is one of the top rated dental practices in the Northern Dallas area.
We can provide complete care under one roof, which is unlike other local providers. General dentistry, cosmetic, pediatric, smile design, reconstruction and other surgical procedures are all available.
During a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will assess whether or not there are signs that the patient is experiencing pain. Our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if there are any problems. We’ll also look for any other dental problems that may affect the patient’s oral health.
We will inspect the patient’s teeth and also examine any signs or symptoms that may indicate problems with their gums. This is essential because gum disease can lead to many other health issues and may even cause tooth loss. The procedure involves placing a probe into the gums between each tooth to determine how deep it is. This allows us determine the amount of gum tissue between each tooth. We will also look for any inflammation or bleeding from the gums.
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 may also need to take radiographs and X-rays. However, one reason we do so is to check for any decay in the back part of the mouth. 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.
Teeth decay and cavities in children can happen at any age. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental suggests that children bring their child in for their first appointment when they’re 18 months or younger to ensure that there aren’t any overbite or structural issues. Your child’s first teeth could last a lifetime, if properly maintained and treated. We recommend that they be seen at least twice annually to make sure they don’t have any serious issues.
We will make sure your child feels secure and at ease before our team of skilled dental professionals begins the adolescent dental 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. You will help them to relax in one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment chairs. An initial mouth exam and x-ray will then be performed.
After that, we will speak with you about the dental health of your child and make recommendations on how to maintain their 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. To protect your child’s teeth, you may need to use dental sealants or fluoride treatment. If we find a problem, our staff will create a custom treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We are happy to accommodate any special requests that you may have such as providing music during your appointment or providing a distraction for your child.
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 need to know their job very well because they are responsible for the teeth cleaning process.
Patients’ teeth are cleaned with different instruments and water sprays. Special toothpaste may be used. You can use many different kinds of tools, such as brushes, drills and scrapers. They polish patient’s teeth using special polishing solution or disks. Before they begin scaling and polishing, it is important to get rid of all plaque and calculus.
For faster and more comfortable cleanings, we use the latest hygienic equipment. An ultrasonic cleaning device, for example, uses high-speed vibrations to remove dirt and a lubricating oil to do the same. 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. The patient could suffer from gum disease and tooth decay if they do not perform this treatment regularly. We do our best to make regular visits to the dentist as simple as possible for all members of the family.
Wisdom tooth removal is the surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdoms teeth. This is called permanent adult teeth. A wisdom tooth may be extracted by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Wisdom tooth extraction is recommended by some dentists and or surgeons even if there are no problems. Problems can be detected early by regular checkups and x-rays.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a procedure to remove a wisdom tooth. This can be done due to several complications, such as:
Impacted wisdom tooth
Angled towards the adjacent tooth or back of your jaw
Stuck within jaw bone
It can cause pain
Becomes a cause of periodontal disease
Causes decay in neighboring tooth due to trapped food
Cyst development around wisdom tooth
Interferes orthodontist treatment
Patients receive local anesthetics to numb the affected area, and sedatives to relax them so that there is no pain.
Oral Sedation might be used in the rare case where patients are extremely 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.
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. Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental is a leading oral surgeon, so you won’t need to be referred.
The use of lasers for treating a variety oral diseases is known as dental lasers. 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 to the teeth, and soft tissue refers 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.
Initial dentists focused on treating hard tissue. Lasers could not be used to treat soft tissues. Laser dentistry has been around since the early days, but it was not used for gum treatment until recent years.
Scientists have found that the highest absorption wavelengths of lasers vary for different tissues and applications. The wavelengths in nm can be used to determine which laser is appropriate for a given application. Different types of lasers are available in this regard.
Sutures are not required with soft tissue Lasers. The laser stimulates blood clotting, which reduces bleeding in soft tissues. Anesthesia may not be necessary for some treatments. Due to the laser’s antibacterial effect, the likelihood of bacterial infections decreases. Lasers are faster at healing wounds and can promote tissue regeneration. The procedures may cause less discomfort.The patient’s recovery time is faster than with traditional treatment methods.
However, with soft tissue procedures there are some disadvantages that must be considered. The light from the laser is absorbed by water within the cells. This causes them to evaporate quickly, leading to pain and decreased elasticity of the gum tissue. 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.
To see if laser dentistry is right for you, call us today to schedule an exam. We’re the premier dental clinic that offers laser treatments in the Willow Bend area.
Nowadays, you can choose from platinum or other fillings instead of silver and gold. 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).
Composite fillings have become the preferred filling material. 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 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 are better than silver, as they are more durable and less likely to crack or break. They are almost undetectable.
Composite tooth-colored fillings are bonded to the tooth they are attached to, so your oral health is not affected by the adhesive joining of dissimilar materials. 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-colored filling material can be used to repair a fractured tooth and restore your chewing ability.
Ceramic materials are used in crowns to create tooth colored fillings. They have the same compressive strength and color as enamel. In addition to being strong, they bond well both to tooth enamel and to composite resin.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental may be able to determine if the candidate is suitable for composite resin restorations. This modern filling is available at one of the best dental offices in the Willow Bend region.
A dentist can complete complex procedures like dental crowns and bridges with ease by using sedation dentistry. It involves putting the patient to sleep using medication.
Minimal Sedation refers to the simplest level of sedation. It can range from being awake to almost unconscious. It’s used to help the patient relax and feel comfortable. It’s primary purpose is to ease any fear that the patient may have, and in order to achieve this aim, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is administered by breathing through a mask or face piece similar in appearance to a clear plastic bag.
Moderate sedation is used to promote relaxation and sleep during treatment. It is often 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.
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 is usually used in trauma cases or for extensive 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 cannot move and must be continuously 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. 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 Willow Bend.
Endodontic treatment is also known as root canal. It involves saving a damaged tooth and eliminating the infection. Painkillers are often prescribed for toothaches. 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. This is a straightforward procedure that may require several visits.
An endodontist performs endodontic treatment 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 and seal it with composite to stop germs from infecting the first session. The tooth will be filled with composite. To provide protection, a dental Crown may be necessary in some instances.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental has been offering endodontic treatments to patients in or near Willow Bend since many 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 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. 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 can also be used to cover teeth that have been damaged by 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 can replace the old filling material, and it will strengthen your tooth by protecting it against future 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 is very painless. Your dentist will inspect your mouth and make a crown. This can be worn within one week depending on the impressions we take. You might also receive a temporary crown while your permanent one is being created.
The dentist might recommend a bridge if a tooth is too damaged to be crowned. A bridge can replace missing teeth, improve your bite, and repair facial structure. There are many types of bridges. They all consist of crowns that are placed on either side or both of the missing teeth. A “pontic”, also called an abutment tooth, is placed between the anchoring and false teeth. These false teeth are also created in the office by our dentist.
The bridge replaces the missing tooth. Bridges can be placed after you’ve had your remaining teeth removed (such as during a dental implant procedure) or after you’ve lost teeth due to periodontal disease or injury.
A dental implant, a surgical fixture, is an insert that is inserted into a jawbone. This is allowed to connect with bone over a period of time. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth that is lost. The “artificial tooth root”, in turn, supports a replacement or bridge.
An attached dental implant to the jawbone looks like a natural tooth. It stands alone and is stable. “Osseointegration,” or the integration of jawbones and dental implants, is what we call it.
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. Dental implants are used to replace teeth.
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 Willow Bend offer dental implants. However, not all implants are the same.
PubMed.gov claims that there are more than 220 different implant brands. They have been produced by over 80 manufacturers. Different types of implants are available. Each one is made from different materials. The dentist may choose from over 2000 implants for any given patient. Implants made from titanium and titanium alloys appear to perform well clinically in properly surgically prepared bone, regardless of small variations of shapes and forms. 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. Some implants are manufactured in certain parts of the world without any evidence of conforming to international standards.
At Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental, we ensure that you get the very best quality standards available in modern 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.
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are devices that replace missing teeth. These are removable devices that can change your gums or shade the color of your lips.
Healthy gums are necessary to hold dentures in place. Missing teeth may be replaced with a bridge, which is fixed in place. To replace missing teeth, dental implants or dentures may be used.
Different types of dentures include:
* Traditional complete full dentures
* Partial dentures
* Custom dentures
* Intermediate (between partial and full) denture
* Snap-in dentures
* Snap-on dentures
* Overdentures that can be used with dental implants. 
Traditional full denture: A traditional full denture is also known as a standard or fixed full denture. It is typically the most affordable and 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 supported by a metal framework. This supports the wire clasps.
Partial denture. A partial denture also known as a “temporary part denture” is when you have some teeth 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.
Custom denture: The custom denture is made with an impression taken of your upper or below jaw, and then a special material.
It is designed to fit snugly and comfortably, unlike a regular denture.
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.
After you have learned how to adjust your denture and insert it yourself, you won’t ever need to return to your dentist for adjustments.
Overdentures are a partial denture that can be “fixed” and attached to dental implant 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 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 typically made in a dental laboratory. Technicians use molds (molds), of your jaw and gums to create the device.
Bobby Jivnani Plano Dental serves as a top provider of dentures in the area. We’ll work with your to ensure that you get the most cost-effective, functional and attractive partial or complete dentures.
