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 Lewisville Dentist is here for you. We have been treating this common problem since 2003.
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 (who are we kidding – it’s pain).
Here in our Lewisville dentistry practice, our knowledgeable dental staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dr. Natalie Goodman usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Dallas Wal-Mart and Coppell Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Lewisville patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at The Lewisville Dentist.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Lewisville and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at The Lewisville Dentist, Dr. Goodman can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
