For those people who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Premier Dental Esthetics – Peter S. Young, DDS is here for you. We have been treating this common trouble since 1997.
The team has been treating this common problem for many years and is very experienced – as our family dentistry patients in Pasadena and Arcadia know.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can lead to 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 (who are we kidding—it’s pain).
Here in our Arcadia dentistry practice, our team can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
TIPS ON TREATING TOOTH SENSITIVITY
We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps curb 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. Our team can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
Good dental hygiene including
- brushing and flossing,
- professional dental cleanings, and a
- healthy, balanced diet help keep gums healthy and pain free.
