For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center is here for you. Dr. Almeida has been treating this common issue since 1977.
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).
Here in our Lone Tree dentistry practice, Dr.Almeida can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dr. Almeida usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. However, some Lone Tree patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center, Dr. Almeida can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
