Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (949) 661-2052 and Dr. Nicholas Shubin will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.

Bad Breath Can Be a Sign of Dental Problems

While bad breath might be a symptom of some other disorder, it most likely stems from dental decay and periodontitis. It's more than just socially awkward - it's a serious threat to your oral health. Periodontitis is a disease affecting gums and bone that support the teeth, and it is caused by inadequate brushing and flossing.

If you’re worried about bad breath, call us today at (949) 661-2052 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shubin. If he finds gum disease and/or dental decay, it can be treated readily. There's no need to live with bad breath, and no reason to neglect your dental health.

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 Nicholas Shubin, DDS, DABOI, DICOI, MAGD 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 (949) 661-2052 today.

What Patients Say About Us

Dr. Shubin changed my life!!! Before meeting him, I was faced with one of the scariest challenges of my life.

I was seeing a new dentist and it was just a regular appointment for cleaning and x-rays, but I realized quickly that something was wrong during the physical examination of my mouth. The dentist said I had significant bone loss and wouldn’t even do the cleaning. He suggested I see a specialist.

As a professional speaker and trainer, I was devastated by the news. I immediately went to work researching all of my options. I decided to interview multiple dentist in the Southern California area. I met some competent and friendly dentists, but it wasn’t until I interviewed Dr. Shubin that I realized how much more advanced he was from the other dentist - they hadn’t even heard of some of the options Dr. Shubin talked to me about, plus they had to outsource a lot of the implant work, so choosing the best dentist was easy for me.

Dr. Shubin was very frank about my situation and how the process would work. Everything would be done in-house by him, so I never had to worry about working with different doctors. His credentials, education and experience is beyond impressive, so I had a lot of confidence in his abilities. Christine helped me with the financing so I could get started right away. The staff was so kind and compassionate, and even held my hand to calm me during my surgeries. I was pleasantly surprised how painless most of the dental procedures were - that really lessened the anxiety that I’ve always had about going to the dentist.

I am so grateful for Dr. Shubin and his fantastic staff. they always treated me with respect. I am so please with my beautiful smile - I no longer have any pain, I can eat whatever I want and I have a newfound confidence when I speak. I recently went back to work and had my first speaking engagement since my dental procedures and I never even thought about my mouth - that’s how seamless it has all become.

There are not enough words to express how I fee about Dr.Shubin and his staff. They are like family to me and I will always be grateful to them for taking such good care of me!!!

February 25, 2013

I have had dental implants for a little over a year. Improper maintenance and Periodontal Disease left me with few teeth and very little bone. My girlfriend suggested dental implants, and I must admit I was terrified at the very thought of such a procedure. I, like most people have a fear of dental work.

After researching and considering all my options, I found Dr. Nicholas Shubin. He took the time to explain in detail what was ahead of me, with regards to bone grafts, extractions, and the time and healing process involved. As a result, he put my mind at ease.

I now have a great smile, a full set of teeth, and a newfound confidence that I have not had in several years.

I would like to Thank Dr. Shubin and his caring staff. They have gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable throughout this process. They are professional, yet caring and I hold them to the highest regard.

Dr. Nicholas Shubin uses advanced technology and his experience alone allows me to wholeheartedly recommend him for any and all dental procedures.

Respectfully yours,

Jonathan Beers

Dr. Shubin, thank you for the excellent dentisty over the years and specifically the implant treatment I'm currently going through. I knew when I sat in the chair to begin implant treatment the process would be difficult and painful. However, with Ashley explaining what was to be done and her expert care I began to let down my guard. By the time the surgery began I was relaxed, and throughout the surgery I did not feel any pain whatsoever. Even in the days that followed, I did not experience any pain and did not have the need or take one single pain pill you had prescribed.

There are now many dentists in the tooth implant field. Many have lower pricing. However, none are as expert as you are in the implant dentistry field. In addition, you also have a staff that is knowledgeable and caring beyond my expectations. My peace of mind is important to me regarding my dental health and you and your staff have always given me peace of mind. That is something I would not find at the low end pricing pricing practices.

Again thank you for the amazing dental work.

Very truly yours,

Larry O.

My name is Marty. It had been a long time since I had been to the dentist. Like my old "72 Chevy I keep hanging on to. The same was true about my teeth-they were old painful and infected.

I work in a job where I come into contact with a lot of people. I started asking everyone for the best dentist in the area and the same name kept coming up- Dr. Shubin in San Juan Capistrano. Then I found a coupon for a free consultation. I called right away and made an appointment.

When I first met Dr. Shubin I had a lot of questions about dental implants. After the exam, he answered all my questions, and we set a date for my much needed full mouth restoration with implants.

Dr. Shubin and his staff were very professional and he instilled an instant feeling of trust in his abilities to get the job done. On the "Big Day", I was so happy that Dr. Shubin was going to get this "rattlesnake" out of my mouth. The surgery was painless; Dr. Shubin and his staff worked well together and got the job done in a timely manner. One, two, three--I got the "works" and was ready to go home

Now I feel great! I have a "movie star" smile, and I can eat things that I haven't been able to eat for years! I feel healthy and because I had my full mouth reconstruction, I will probably live longer!

Thank you Dr. Shubin, you saved my life.
