Preventive care for our youngest patients

Dr. Raiyani treats children from Hanford, Lemoore, and surrounding areas with a fun, friendly attitude. Early dental care focuses on the prevention and early detection of cavities and other dental problems. One of the best forms of preventive care available today is dental sealants. This preventive treatment is painless, takes only a few minutes, and lasts for several years. During a routine visit, sealants can be applied to the chewing surface of molars. The liquid material seeps into the deep grooves on these surfaces, filling them so that bacteria and food debris cannot accumulate in hard to reach places.

Routine examinations are also made more positive using laser cavity finding technology. The laser equipment designed for cavity detection is painless and accurate in identifying very small cavities. The earlier we can find and treat cavities, the better our chances of preventing a painful dental situation.

Beautiful tooth repair

As much as we would like, we know we cannot prevent cavities in every patient. When a tooth requires repair, we use the best materials to achieve long lasting results. With composite resin tooth colored fillings, inlays, and onlays, we can repair cavities of all sizes without leaving any evidence of damage or restoration. Composite fillings are durable, lasting decades with good care, and they are conservative. This is because this type of filling is bonded to the repaired tooth, requiring no more removal of enamel than is necessary to remove decay.
