If you are looking for an excellent dental practice that provides top-notch preventive dental care, then you will want to become familiar with our dental office, Alexander Villar DDS. Patients come to see our Santa Clarita dentist for periodic dental exams, and received dental cleanings at the same dental visit. This is a very convenient way that many of our patients choose to protect the beauty and health of their smile.
When patients come to see our Santa Clarita dentist, Dr. Alexander Villar, for an exam, they will have their complete oral health reviewed. It is recommended that patients also have a dental cleaning every six months so that all plaque and tartar can be removed from your teeth. Even with the very best at-home dental cleaning regimen, some plaque will always remain on teeth. Plaque is the cause of dental cavities. When plaque remains on teeth for an extended period of time, it will also turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that tightly adheres to teeth and which encourages the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. When this occurs, you will develop gum disease. So, having excellent oral hygiene, and having regular dental exams is not only a great way to keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free, but also a great way to avoid getting gum disease. During your visit at our dental office, our dentist or hygienist can review with you how to properly brush and floss your teeth so that you will be able to benefit from maximum teeth cleaning efforts at home. At our dental practice, we also welcome children. We recommend that children have fluoride treatments after a dental cleaning to help strengthen their tooth enamel. Dental sealants are also effective in helping to protect the flat chewing surfaces of your child’s premolars and molars.
