Men and women in the 93230 area search for a dentist who can restore health and beauty to smiles

At Hanford Family Dental Center, we do all we can to educate patients in the 93230 area about oral health and preventive measures that can help them avoid cavities. Education is critical because cavities are one of the most common health conditions in the world. We recommend brushing at least twice a day, and sometimes after every meal, flossing to remove debris and particles that are difficult to remove with a toothbrush, and regular dental check-ups. Biannual appointments should include professional cleanings and examinations. We can use innovative laser technology called DIAGNOdent to detect cavities and intra-oral cameras to capture images that can be seen in real-time video. Our respected dentist, Dr. Nikunj Raiyani, utilizes this technology to educate patients about their oral health and tailor treatment plans to meet their needs.

Signs of cavities include visible pits or holes in the teeth. You may experience pain when biting or mild to sharp pain when drinking or eating cold or hot foods and beverages. Tooth sensitivity and toothaches are also common symptoms of cavities. Although we hope you can avoid cavities, you can be rest assured we provide treatment promptly if they are identified during an examination. It is important to treat cavities immediately because they can eventually cause gum disease, which has been linked to heart disease, pancreatic cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and other serious health conditions.

We provide tooth colored composite resin fillings to restore health to the smile. For treatment, we remove the decay and fill the teeth with natural looking material. If the decay is severe, we may recommend crowns to protect the teeth. Crowns are caps placed over the affected teeth after decay is removed. We use porcelain to create a crown, which is strong, durable, and blends nicely with the smile. Dental fillings and crowns can last many years with good oral hygiene habits.

Have you experienced any signs or symptoms of cavities? The Hanford Family Dental Center team will take good care of you and can restore health to your smile. Call 559-530-8080 today to schedule an appointment.
