Who likes when wine stains their teeth after a few sips? Not us! Our dentists recommend drinking water and also rinsing your mouth out as often as possible while enjoying a glass of red wine. We dont want to hold you back from your favorite Christmas activities, we just want to help!

Is a dental implant right for you?

Have you lost a tooth due to accident, injury, or illness? If so, a dental implant is a good option to replace missing teeth!

A dental implant is made of medical-grade titanium that is surgically implanted into your jawbone. A dental crown is placed on top of the implant, with the end result looking like a natural tooth. Dental implants are a more secure solution for replacing missing teeth than dentures because they are fixed in place and can’t be removed like dentures. Dental implants can also be more durable than dentures.

If you elect to have a dental implant inserted, dental surgery may be required. But, the doctors at Nash Dental Care are highly trained in oral surgery and will work hard to ensure a smooth procedure. The entire process can take up to six months but the end result is well worth the wait!

The first step in a dental implant procedure is to insert a titanium screw into the jawbone. The doctor then creates a permanent bond between the implant and the jawbone. A temporary oral appliance will be worn while the jawbone and the implant post heals. The healing process can take several weeks or months, depending on how quickly the jawbone bonds to the implant post. Once your mouth has healed, you will return to our Temecula dental practices for a custom crown to be placed on top of the dental implant post. The end result is a natural looking tooth and a beautiful smile!

If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, call Nash Dental Care at our Temecula office today at 951) 699-0700. Our friendly staff will answer any questions and set up a consultation with the doctor.


Here at Nash Dental Care, we want to ensure that each of our patients are aware and preventative of oral cancer. Oral and oropharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and upper throat) unfortunately kills nearly one person every hour of every day each year. Of the people diagnosed with these types of cancers, 40 percent will not survive longer than five years. However, many who do survive oral cancer suffer long-term problems, such as severe facial disfigurement or difficulties with eating and speaking. It is a serious disease that is sometimes not taken seriously and Nash Dental Care wants to ensure that every patient is aware and regularly gets cancer screenings.

The main issue we face today with oral cancer is the death rate associated with oral and oropharyngeal cancers remains particularly high because the cancers routinely are discovered late in their development. Fortunately, when oral and oropharyngeal cancers are detected and treated early, mortality and treatment-related health problems are reduced. That is why Nash Dental Care is here to help each of our current and new patients be proactive in their screenings. We want to ensure that everyone lives a happy and healthy life, while being aware and proactive!

In between dental visits, it is important for patients to be aware of the following signs and symptoms, and to see a dentist if any of these symptoms proceed.

  • soreness or irritating within the mouth
  • red or white patches, or pain, tenderness, or numbness in mouth or lips
  • lumps, thickening tissues, rough spots, crusty or eroded areas
  • difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving your jaw or tongue
  • a change in the way your teeth fit together when you close your mouth

If you have any of these symptoms please call Nash Dental Care to make an appointment with one of our dentist professionals. If you are not experiencing any symptoms we still recommend that you receive annual oral cancer screenings. Why not be preventative with your oral treatment?

Prevent Tooth Loss Now, Before It’s Too Late!

How To Prevent Tooth Loss From Your Preventive Dentist in Temecula

The thought of losing our precious teeth can weigh heavy on our minds as we get older. Is tooth loss inevitable for me? Are dentures in my future? How can I prevent losing my teeth? The answer may be easier than you think! Did you know that about 10% of adults aged between 50 to 64 will end up losing their teeth? Our preventive dentist in Temecula can offer vital oral dental health tips on how to avoid being one of these numbers.

What Causes Tooth Loss?

The experienced dentists at Nash Dental Care in Temecula will teach their patients the importance of good oral hygiene to prevent tooth loss. Here is a list Dr. Nash and Dr. Sewell say are the main issues leading to tooth decay and eventually loss to avoid Temecula implants in the future:

Poor oral hygiene ranks as one of the biggest issues with tooth loss. Don’t skip brushing or flossing daily or this will lead to thriving bacteria on food or sugars that remain in the mouth. The bacteria buildup damages the bone and periodontal ligaments of teeth.

Gum disease ranks as another leading cause for tooth decay and loss. About half of adults worldwide have a form of gum disease. It is fairly common to have gum disease, but don’t let it lightly! If you have sensitive or bleeding gums, you need to see your dentist. A sturdy foundation for your teeth is essential.

When Do You See The Dentist? If you answered only when you have an issue, then that is too long. We recommend seeing the dentist every six months. This regular visit will help prevent oral health issues before they progress. Make it a priority to plan a dentist visit every six months.

Nicotine is a major factor in tooth loss as well as a bad diet. Anything that comes in contact with your teeth will impact their health. So, avoid nicotine, sugars and refined carbs as well as any acidic foods.

If you grind your teeth (Bruxism), this will put pressure on teeth. After a while, this will cause bone tissue loss. Make sure you tell your dentist about solutions to eliminate grinding of teeth.

Another big issue is having missing or crooked teeth. With gaps between teeth, they will tend to move to fill in the gaps. A sturdy foundation of teeth is a healthy start. Plus, with straight teeth you will be able to care for them more easily preventing plaque buildup.

Here is a quick guide to prevent tooth loss:

  • Brush teeth for two minutes with a soft bristle toothbrush, 2-3 times a day.
  • Floss daily, at least once after your last meal of the day
  • Visit your dentist every six months
  • Limit sugar intake
  • Eat a well-balanced diet
  • Avoid tobacco and cigarette products

To prevent tooth loss and ensure you have the best smile in town, schedule an appointment for a routine dental checkup and cleaning at your dentist in Temecula, CA, Nash Dental Care today!
