For anyone who feels pain when sipping your morning coffee, or who cringe each time you brush or floss, the dentists at Providence Dental in Las Vegas are here for you.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in 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 figure 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 toothpaste for sensitive teeth. These reduce pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
Studies show that as many as forty million people have tooth sensitivity. If you’re among them, remember that it most cases you can do something about it. Call us at Providence Dental in Las Vegas for an appointment. We offer family dentistry, and specialties like wisdom teeth extraction. We also offer urgent dental care. Call today.
