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.

For the very best in preventive dental care, and to visit with our Santa Clarita dentist, simply contact our office today.

Dentures in Santa Clarita

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.
