Santa Clarita dentist
If when you think of dentures, you are picturing the old-fashioned ones that are held to your gums with dental adhesive, our Santa Clarita dentist wants you to know that you can enjoy all the benefits that dentures have provided for so many years, but supplemented by the advancements and technical advantages that are represented by dental implants.
What we’re referring to are implant-supported dentures, in which you get the best of both worlds. Traditional dentures are made on a plastic base that is colored to match your gums. You then place them on your gums with adhesive and take them out when you don’t need them or to clean them. And for those who don’t have the strong and thick jaw structure to be considered a good candidate for implant-supported dentures, there are still very good reasons to feel positive about the traditional type, in the sense that they offer you replacement teeth so that you have a normal smile and you can eat foods without difficulties. However, there are certain drawbacks to traditional dentures, such as the fact that adhesive is not always 100% reliable. Chewing and speaking cannot always be done with full confidence. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures give you a method that is much closer to the construction of real teeth. Implants are surgically placed in your jaw by our Santa Clarita dentist, and your jaw bone grows around and fuses with them. The denture portion is designed to snap onto the implants and they hold firm, allowing you to have a more carefree attitude about your dentures.
Missing teeth leave you feeling self-conscious and make the everyday routines like eating into a chore. Let our Santa Clarita dentist get you started on dentures to replace those teeth. Call our office and schedule an appointment right now.

If you would like to come to our practice, Alexander Villar DDS, to learn more about Valencia dental implants, we hope you will visit with us soon.
At our endodontic practice, Dr. Alexander Villar is known as one of Santa Clarita’s finest endodontists because of his technically expert care and fine attention to detail. Our patients thoroughly trust him to provide comfortable and exemplary dental care. If you are thinking about getting Valencia dental implants, you can do no better than to come to our dental practice to meet with our endodontist. Once you meet with our endodontist, he will be able to assess your individual situation and know whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants. He will also be able to let you know other details about your particular situation and how it relates to your getting dental implants. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, our dentist will surgically insert a dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Our dentist will provide you with temporary teeth to wear until the implant process is completed. It generally takes anywhere between 2 to 4 months for the jawbone to fully heal, and for the dental implants to fully fuse to the jawbone.
When you come into our endodontic practice, our endodontist will take the time to get to know your lifestyle, your needs, and what you want to accomplish through this dental work. All of this information will go into our endodontist determining whether or not dental implants are a good tooth replacement choice for you. If you do get dental implants, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of each dental implant, one healing has completed. At this point the dental implant is complete and you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort. The dental implants should last a lifetime, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and if you have periodic dental cleanings as well.
