Trick or Treat Tips For A Healthy Halloween

October brings in cooler weather, fall atmosphere, and most importantly Halloween! We know that this time of year means lots of candy and treats for both you and your children. While eating candy is one of the most important parts of trick or treating, we want to ensure that your children have a fun night while also maintaining a healthy mouth. It is no secret that candy causes harm to the teeth. Candy contains sugar which eats away at the enamel of the tooth and ultimately causes cavities and decay. But, there are ways to prevent this from occurring. That is why, here at Nash Dental Care in Temecula, Dr. Sewell and Dr. Nash have provided our patients with some tips and tricks on how to maintain a healthy smile this month.

The stickier the candy (caramel, taffy, etc), the longer they stay on the teeth causing decay.

Chewing sugar-free gum after meals can help reduce tooth decay

Avoid biting into hard candy- this can break off your tooth!

Try to eat candy with meals and drink water afterward

Don’t brush immediately after eating candy since that can remove the softened tooth enamel. Wait at least 30 minutes

Better options are chocolate bars, chocolate-covered items, small hard candies, and licorice

Our staff hopes that the tricks above are followed by you and your children and cavities do not surface. If you have any other questions on how to protect your teeth this month or would like to make an appointment with either of our highly trained doctors give us a call at 951-699-0700

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!
