For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry is here for you. We have been treating this common problem since 1974.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about 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 Comstock Park cosmetic and general dentistry practice, Dr. Stewart and Dr, Hull can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull may recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. However, some Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry, Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
