Patients in Hanford, CA seek high quality dentistry services including denture treatment

From ordering dinner to choosing an outfit, we generally like having choices. We also typically appreciate having a variety of treatment options when we visit the dentist. Dr. Nikunj Raiyani provides high quality dentistry services that can restore health, function, and beauty to the smile. At Hanford Family Dental Center, one of the many treatments we offer is dentures.

We know missing teeth can cause embarrassment. There are many reasons it is critical to seek treatment for tooth loss. Left untreated, you may experience:
  • Difficulty in chewing food and pronouncing certain words
  • Teeth shifting out of place due to the gaps from missing teeth
  • A facial sunken structure
Dr. Raiyani provides three types of dentures – full, partial, implant supported dentures. He uses full dentures to replace an arch of teeth on the lower or upper jaw. Partial dentures can replace one to several missing teeth. Implant supported dentures involve attaching the prosthetic appliance to mini-implants. The dentures snap onto the implants and rest on top of the gums.

The first step toward having the dentures you desire is scheduling an appointment with Dr. Raiyani. During an evaluation, he will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to determine your candidacy for dentures. He may have digital x-rays and facial photographs taken. If you are a candidate for dentures, he will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs. Next, he will make impressions of your mouth and send them to a dental laboratory where technicians create your customized dentures. In the final stage of treatment, Dr. Raiyani will check the dentures for bite, fit, and proper appearance. You can walk away with a restored ability to eat and speak, which can increase your self-esteem.

With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy the benefits of dentures for many years. Therefore, it is critical to brush, floss, and maintain dental check-ups. We provide proper after care instructions to ensure you can keep your dentures and oral health in excellent condition. To explore denture treatment further, schedule an appointment with Dr. Raiyani by calling (559) 530-8080.
