Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?
For those of you in the Seattle area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry is 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 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 Seattle dentistry practice, our friendly staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity troubles and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Seattle area drugstores carry it. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Seattle and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry, our team can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
