You have a good handle on what you should be doing with your preventive dental care, generally speaking, of course. That doesn’t mean, though, that you will know just what to do or that you will have all of the answers as little questions occur throughout day-to-day life. Remember: This is what our Temecula, CA team is here for! To help! From treatments to advice, we offer it all. To get started with recognizing that even the simplest of help can be of great assistance (and that it’s always worth asking), your Temecula dentist offers preventive tips to consider!

Tip: Chew (Sugarless) Gum After Meals

A very easy preventive dental care tip that your Temecula dentist would like to share with you? Chew sugarless gum after meals. Oh, and snacks, too! You can even select this sweet treat after drinking particularly sugary or staining beverages. Why do so? Well, when you can’t brush but you can rinse with water and then chew, it’s the next best thing. The gum helps you clean your smile, both by increasing salivation and by physically removing debris in the form of food particles from tooth surfaces! Give it a try.

Tip: Wear An Athletic Mouthguard

It seems simple enough, of course, but if you’ve never worn an athletic mouthguard before or if only some of the kids on your child’s team is wearing them, it may not occur to you. Today, your Temecula dentist reminds you that this is very simple tip with big protection. Remember, whether you or your child gets hit in the mouth with a ball, makes contact with a hand, elbow, or sports equipment, or someone falls, smile damage is very possible. Prevent it with a guard!

Tip: Plan Everything Ahead Of Time

Plan everything ahead of time, you wonder? Well, in terms of your preventive dental care, the answer is yes! Your Temecula dentist reminds you that planning early means you never miss a beat. Plan your dental hygiene out ahead of time, plan to pick up products that are running low ahead of time, plan your visits with our practice ahead of time, too, and you’ll stay on track!
