For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Century City Aesthetic Dentistry is here for you. Our staff has been treating this common issue since 1985.
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 Los Angeles dentistry practice, we can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Our team usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. However, some Los Angeles patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, we can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
