Santa Clarita dentist
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.

Valencia CA dentist
If you are experiencing a toothache, you will want to make an immediate appointment to visit our dental practice, Alexander Villar DDS, for care. Our expert Valencia CA dentist, Dr. Alexander Villar, will thoroughly assess the reason for your tooth pain and provide you with appropriate treatment.
When you come to our dental practice complaining of tooth pain, there can be many different reasons for this tooth pain. Two common reasons are wisdom teeth which have become infected or impacted, or a tooth which is damaged or infected in its interior and needs to have a root canal treatment in order to be saved. If you have severe toothache pain while you are chewing, or while pressure is placed upon the tooth, you may have a tooth that needs to have a root canal treatment. Teeth which are damaged in this manner also may have extreme sensitivity to heat or cold. A tooth may even be discolored, or the gums may be swollen and tender. If your tooth is damaged and needs root canal treatment, our dentist will assess whether or not it can likely be saved with this procedure. Happily, over 90% of teeth can be saved by a root canal treatment. Our dentist can provide this treatment for you while you remain perfectly comfortable in our dentist’s chair. Our Valencia CA dentist, may also find that the cause of your toothache is an infected wisdom tooth. It is very common for people to have problems with their wisdom teeth, since wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the mouth to erupt. Often, by the time the wisdom teeth are ready to erupt, there simply is no room left for them. If wisdom teeth are impacted or infected, our dentist will probably recommend that they are extracted. At our dental practice we offer tooth extraction for wisdom teeth, or for other teeth which need to be extracted for some reason.

It is generally recommended by our Valencia pediatric dentist that children come in for their first dental exam when they reach one year of age, or when their first baby tooth erupts – whichever comes first.
At our dental practice we are happy to be able to provide many different types of dental care for kids. Our pediatric dentist recommends that children have dental checkups twice a year. As they reach ages seven and eight they should have an assessment for braces to see if they will benefit from interceptive orthodontic care. At our practice we also provide children with comprehensive teeth cleanings to make sure that their teeth and gums stay healthy. We also offer dental health reviews, and cavity prevention and education for our young patients. We make sure that our young patients know how to effectively brush and floss their teeth using proper technique. Although primary teeth are not meant to stay in a child’s mouth forever, they do serve many important functions. Therefore, it is important that primary teeth stay in the child’s mouth for as long as they are needed. Primary teeth act as placeholders for permanent teeth, help a child develop clear speaking skills, and helps the child to chew their food thoroughly, for good digestion.
