About Brighton

Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact Grand River Dental Care at (855) 452-6600 to schedule a dental checkup.

Regular Dental Cleaning Can Ward Off Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and it is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Early gum disease, or gingivitis, can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, not receiving treatment will lead to a more serious and advanced state of gum disease.

Regular cleanings and check-ups and daily brushing and flossing are key weapons in the fight against these conditions so call Grand River Dental Care today at (855) 452-6600 to schedule a checkup soon.

Diet and Dental Health

Diets low in certain nutrients can reduce resistance to oral and dental infections including gum disease and tooth decay. A healthy immune system is essential to controlling periodontal disease. Counseling in the Four Basic Food groups will improve dental health and general health.

The consumption of sugar, especially in sticky forms or in a baby bottle while sleeping, contributes to the rapid development of dental decay. Dr. Nelson believes that a balanced diet, effective brushing and sensible eating habits can reduce the risk of, or even prevent, infectious dental disease. If you need more information on how a healthy diet can improve your dental health, please don't hesitate to call Grand River Dental Care 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.
