For those people who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces is here for you. DoctorTouraj Habashi has been treating this common issue since 2017.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can lead to receding gums, which creates 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 Las Vegas dentistry practice, DoctorHabashi can find out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Doctor Habashi usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces 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. Doctor Habashi can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
