Foods That Stain Your Teeth

Did you know that tea can stain your teeth even more than coffee? Many other foods can cause tooth staining, including deeply colored sauces like tomato and curry, highly-acidic sports and energy drinks, red wine, cola, dark berries, artificially colored candy and many others.

At Grand River Dental Care we recommend that you rinse your mouth with water after consuming any of these stain causing food, or use a straw to sip sodas and iced tea. Please call us at (855) 452-6600 if you have any questions about foods and your dental health.

Good Dental Health Can Help Prevent Stroke and Heart Attack

Sure, not getting regular checkups may make you less kissable, but did you know that studies have linked heart attacks and strokes to gum disease associated with poor oral hygiene? A trip to Grand River Dental Care every six months could reduce your risk of serious health problems.

Don’t wait any longer to schedule a checkup with Dr. Wayne Nelson. Call our office today at (855) 452-6600.

Adults Get More Cavities Than Kids

Modern dentistry, with the help of sealants, fluoride, and preventive care, has dramatically reduced tooth decay in children. However, there’s been an increase in decay in seniors. Some medicines dry out the mouth, for example, reducing salvia. Saliva is vital in fighting tooth decay because it helps neutralize acids, has a disinfectant quality, washes away bacteria, and helps prevent food from sticking to your teeth.

If you have questions about senior dental care, please call Grand River Dental Care today at (855) 452-6600.

What Patients Say About Us

First off, Dr. Nelson has been my dentist for years and did an amazing job on my crowns. His work in my opinion has always been above & beyond. I would and have recommended him without thinking twice. My smile not only looks natural, it feels natural as well.

To everyone in Dr. Nelson's office! Thank you so much for everything you all do! I have never had a more positive experience wih a dental office. You are all so friendly, caring, helpful and personable! Plus, you have changed my life forever with all your great work! So....Thank You!!!

While going to the dentist is not something I look forward to, Dr. Nelsons personality and his pain free injection technique make the experience very comfortable. I have in the past recommended him to my friends, co-workers, & family, and will continue to do so.

This office is up to very modern standards and the latest in care. But more important is the dentist, his staff, and office personnel. Dr. Nelson is very gentle and thoughtful. He alleviates discomfort and anxiety, takes his time to answer questions, and explain procedures and options. I have had a lot of dental work done at Grand River Dental Care as well as at speciality offices that Dr. Nelson has had to refer me to and I trust him and his technical staff with any dental problems. My husband, son, daughter-in-law and I highly recommend Grand River Dental Care and Dr. Nelson.
