Are you someone who occasionally finds yourself up late at night, Googling questions related to all manner of fears? If your oral health comes into play during any of this, we encourage you to put the mouse down and go back to bed. You’ll find that speaking with your Temecula dentist will offer much more accurate, reliable, and relieving answers to your questions. To get started, we would like to share some common concerns we hear about (and our responses to them). Remember, we are happy to answer any question you have, even if it seems silly.

Will I Die If I Swallow Toothpaste?

You may have heard that fluoride is toxic in large doses, which sends you straight into a panic when you accidentally swallow (instead of spitting), while you’re brushing your teeth one night. Rest easy! Your Temecula dentist explains that if you were to eat a lot of toothpaste, you could end up with some serious digestive upset. However, a little won’t hurt.

Are My Teeth Eventually Going To Fall Out?

Whether you’re having one of those dreams during which you lose most of your teeth or you just notice that many of the older relatives in your family have experienced tooth loss, this might be an area you feel a bit focused on. Fortunately, age is not directly related to whether or not you retain your teeth. As your Temecula dentist explains, the factor that is involved is how well you care for your smile. Keep it clean and healthy and you’ll keep your teeth!
