Choosing the Right Toothpaste

Overwhelmed by your choices? Here's how to choose the right toothpaste for you. While your toothbrush does most of the plaque removal, abrasive agents in toothpaste will scour food particles and plaque from your teeth. Fluoride is the best-known toothpaste ingredient, added to make the outer tooth structure more decay-resistant.

Laurel sulfates, the most common surfactants, can dissolve plaque and fight bacteria. They also provide a foam that helps to carry away debris. Still not sure? Ask Dr. Nelson for a recommendation by calling our office at (855) 452-6600.

Dry Mouth: More Than Just a Nuisance

It should be easy to seal an envelope, but those who suffer from a condition called xerostomia, or dry mouth, usually have to reach for some tape instead. Dry mouth can not only hinder your enjoyment of food, but affect the health of your teeth. Heavy plaque and food accumulations tend to occur with this condition, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Saliva is the body's self-cleansing mechanism. It helps remove food, debris, and plaque from the tooth surfaces, protecting you from oral diseases. It cleans your teeth and neutralizes acids, which prevents tooth decay. People who have dry mouth are very susceptible to cavities, especially on the roots of their teeth, so please call us today at (855) 452-6600 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Wayne Nelson.

How To Avoid Crisis Dental Treatment

Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Grand River Dental Care we call this 'crisis treatment' as opposed to 'preventive treatment.' While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. Most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

An example is tooth decay – it doesn’t hurt until it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. Then a costly root canal or dental crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed inexpensively several years ago when the cavity was small. If you have questions regarding dental emergencies, please call our office at (855) 452-6600 today.

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.
