Dental Hygiene

It’s important to practice good oral hygiene routines to maintain great oral health. This means brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing regularly, and rinsing between meals. At your appointment, we can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that’ll keep your teeth healthy and radiant.

Scheduling routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings is also an essential part of maintaining good oral hygiene. It’s strongly recommended that you come in a least twice a year. This allows us to remove any built-up bacteria and help prevent further oral health problems, like tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental Exams & Cleanings

Not only are your teeth important to oral hygiene, but your gums are essential as well. During your regular check-up, we’ll complete an exam of your teeth and gums to look for signs of cavities, gum disease, and more. Our hygienist will also provide you with a teeth cleaning to eliminate any debris, plaque, or tartar build-up.

For new patients, we’ll take a full set of digital x-rays for a detailed, comprehensive view of your mouth’s structures to detect possible complications.

Root Canal Therapy

The root canal is the deepest layer of your tooth, holding nerves and blood vessels known as the pulp. If a cavity, cracked, or broken tooth is left untreated, the pulp can become infected and cause severe pain, inflammation, tooth sensitivity, and more.

Dr. Villalobos can help relieve your pain and save your tooth with root canal therapy. We’ll create an opening to remove the infected tissue and cover it with a natural-looking, porcelain crown, protecting and strengthening the tooth.

TMJ Therapy & Night Guards

TMJ disorder (TMD) is a painful condition that often results in severe jaw pain, swelling, headaches, toothaches, and more. Fortunately, Dr. Villalobos can help treat your symptoms and relieve your pain with several effective TMJ treatment solutions.

Many patients suffer from bruxism, or excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching while sleeping. To help protect your teeth, we offer custom-made night guards to decrease your risk of further damage. This includes chipped or worn down teeth, irritated gums, jaw pain, and more.

How often should I update my X-rays?
Why are my teeth sensitive?

Sensitive teeth often come from the fact that your gums have slightly receded. This recession of the gum line allows the underlying dentin to show through which allows water and food easier access to the sensitive nerve. To manage this, there are a number of toothpastes, gels and even some dental procedures that can be applied. Speak to us in more detail if you have very sensitive teeth.

What should I do to prevent gum disease and tooth decay?

Great teeth and gum care start at home. Brushing and flossing on a daily basis is the best way to take care of your teeth and gums on a continual basis. By keeping to a daily routine you will greatly minimize the risk of gingivitis or tooth decay as you age.

Do I really need to visit a general dentist?

Yes! It’s important to visit your dentist for a thorough exam and cleaning even if you’re not experiencing symptoms of tooth decay or gum disease. Despite regular brushing and flossing, your teeth can still accumulate tartar that can harbor unwanted bacteria. These bacteria can lead to gum disease and tooth decay if they’re not professionally removed at your dentist’s office. General dentistry services will keep your smile healthy and beautiful for years to come. 

How often should I update my X-rays?

We require patients to update their X-rays once a year to assess your oral health and whether there are signs of gum or bone infections. It’s important to take X-rays each year to minimize the risk of excessive loss of tooth structure and bone loss, as well as prevent root canal treatment.
