For those of you in the Detroit area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Szalai & Szalai DDS is here for you.
Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai have been treating this common problem since 1987.
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 Detroit general dentistry practice, our knowledgeable staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Detroit Wal-Mart and Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Detroit area patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Szalai & Szalai DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Detroit and want to have white teeth. Here at Szalai & Szalai DDS, Dr. Szalai can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
