FAQ

What causes tooth loss?

Tooth decay and periodontal disease are the most common causes of tooth loss. Tooth decay takes place when most of the tooth’s mineral makeup has been dissolved away and a hole (cavity) has formed. While tooth decay affects many children, periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects mostly adults. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums caused by the buildup of plaque, and its earliest stage is known as gingivitis.

What is minimally invasive dentistry?

The best dentistry is no dentistry. There is nothing better than your own teeth. When you need dental enhancements, Dr. Villar focuses on being minimally invasive because the less you reduce the tooth structure, the more you preserve your dental foundation. This approach prolongs the life of your teeth.

What are the warning signs of oral cancer?

Early symptoms of oral cancer include: a sore on the lip, in the mouth, or in the throat that does not heal; a lump on the lip, in the mouth, or in the throat; a red or white patch found anywhere in the mouth; unusual pain or bleeding in the mouth; swelling of the mouth; and any difficulty or discomfort in chewing or swallowing.

Dr. Villar can perform an oral cancer screening using VELscope technology right in his Santa Clarita office! He can get you quick results. Book your oral cancer screening today!

Is there a comfortable way to cure sleep apnea?

The most important thing to know about sleep apnea is that snoring is only a symptom. The main reason to care if you have obstructed sleep apnea is because the brain as well as the whole body is being deprived of oxygen.

Many people are also CPAP intolerant. The device is great but many people find that they simply cannot wear it. Dr. Villar’s main goal is to find ways to cure your sleep apnea and has many options that will help you sleep soundly again.

Dr. Villar can send you home with a portable sleep monitor you can wear at night to determine if you have sleep apnea. Call for your appointment and to book your take home sleep apnea test.
