For those individuals who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, The Plano Dentist is here for you, and has been treating this common problem since 2005.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about receding gums, which results in the exposure of microscopic tubules in the dentin. When these tubules are exposed, acidic, hot, cold, and sticky foods can then reach the nerve cells in the teeth causing discomfort (who are we kidding—it’s pain).
We can find out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that minimizes tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. We can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
