Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Addison?

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 Addison Dentist is here for you.  We have 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 Addison dentistry practice, our compassionate 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 often recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Dallas area drugstores carry it. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at The Addison Dentist.

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