Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Plano?

For those of you in the Dallas area 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.

Dr. Johanna Bushey has been treating this common issue since 2005.

The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in receding gums, which leads to 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.

Here in our Plano dentistry practice, our comfortable and comprehensive staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity dilemmas and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Johanna Bushey usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Dallas area drugstores carry it. However, some Plano patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at The Plano Dentist.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Plano and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at The Plano Dentist, Dr. Bushey can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
