Do you spend a lot of time brushing and flossing your teeth each and every day? If so, that is great for your dental health. However, did you know that you are not doing everything that needs to be done to keep your teeth and gums healthy? It is equally important that you have professional teeth cleanings every six months or less, to make sure that your teeth stay clean and cavity free, and that your gums remain healthy. If you have not recently had a teeth cleaning, come in to see our Valencia dentist.
At our practice, Alexander Villar DDS, our expert and highly-trained Valencia dentist is Dr. Alexander Villar. Our practice uses cutting edge technology to help provide the finest dental care available. Our office is warm and relaxing. We like to provide many amenities for our patients, including lip balms, blankets, and beverages. We want all of our patients to feel that they are part of our dental care family. At our office we provide a wide range of dental treatments. However, one of the most important procedures we provide is teeth cleanings. Teeth cleanings are needed to remove the tartar, plaque and bacteria from your teeth. Tartar is a hardened substance that can never be removed by brushing alone. Professional dental instruments are needed. If tartar is allowed to stay on teeth, deep pockets will begin to form between the teeth and the gums, and gum disease will develop. Plaque, tartar and bacteria will gather in the deep pockets causing serious gum infection. When the infection goes down to the jawbone, teeth can begin to loosen and may even fall out.
Gum disease can also spread to other parts of your body – this can lead to a very serious health situation. Gum disease can usually be totally avoided if you come and see our Valencia dentist on a timely basis for periodic teeth cleanings and dental exams. During an exam or teeth cleaning, the health of your gums will be evaluated. If gingivitis is found to be present, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the coming months. If you have deep pockets in the gums and need more advanced treatment, a scaling and root planing treatment may be recommended to get your gums back on the road to good health. If you would like to come to our office for a dental exam or teeth cleaning, contact us today.
Are you constantly self-conscious about the appearance of gaps and crooked teeth within your smile? This unsightly problems are more than just cosmetic annoyance, but are in fact the symptoms of a bite problem. Many of us ignore these problems out of fear that the treatment we need can cause greater levels of discomfort both physically and emotionally, but the truth is that not all malocclusions must be treated through the use of metal braces. Alternative forms of orthodontics can be used to treat more bite problems today than ever before. Your first step to a beautiful smile begins with a consultation for invisalign in Valencia with the state of the art practice of Alexander Villar DDS.

Invisalign is one of the most highly recommended forms of orthodontic treatment today. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign works through a series of removable transparent plastic retainers which are invisible to the naked eye. There are no bands or brackets required for this form of care. The simplicity of the devices in use actually allows for a healthier method of treating bite problems. The complex metal wiring of braces can actually cause tooth decay to spread, as these wires work to trap food and promote plaque and tartar build-up along the surface. Braces can also cause discomfort due to swollen cheek bones, and are require careful and tedious cleaning in order to insure no harm comes to your mouth through your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is removed during meals, meaning patients never need to alter their diets or be concerned about how these retainers will affect the cleanliness of their mouths and teeth. Your invisalign can be worn comfortably for 23 hours a day without any discomfort or irritation, as your plastic retainers are crafted from computerized images and impressions of your own teeth. Invisalign is available for teenagers as well as adults, and is limited by severity of bite problems more so than age. The sooner a patient books an Invisalign consultation with our dentist in Valencia the greater the likelihood of treatment through this method. Most patients complete invisalign bite problem correction in twelve months or less.
