For those men and women who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Crystal Dental Group in High Point is here for you. Our team of dentists has experience treating this common issue.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about receding gums, which causes 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 High Point dentistry practice, we can find out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Our dentists usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps curb tooth pain after several applications. There are plenty of good ones on the market; ask us for a recommendation. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
At Crystal Dental Group in High Point, we provide our patients with general and cosmetic dentistry. And we love having the kids come in for checkups with children’s dentistry! Make an appointment today.
