Treatment For Sensitive Teeth

Southgate cosmetic dental and tooth implants

For those individuals who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or each time you brush or floss, Allen Park Dental Care is here for you. Our dentists 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 cause 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).

At Allen Park Dental Care, we can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Most often, we recommend any one of several over-the-counter desensitizing toothpastes that help curb tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. We can determine which professional teeth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.

Call Allen Park Dental Care to get relief for your sensitive teeth. We also provide family dentistry.
