Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?
- Posted on: Oct 20 2017
For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Flax Dental is here for you.
Dr. Hugh Flax has been treating this common trouble since 1987.
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 dentistry practice, our warm staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity issues and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. Most local drugstores carry it. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Flax Dental.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Dr. Flax can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
