Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

For those of you in the Phoenix area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Harris Dental is here for you.

Dr. Harris Dental has been treating this common trouble since 1979.

The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in 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.

Here in our Phoenix dentistry practice, our patient-oriented staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity problems and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Harris Dental usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. Most Phoenix area drugstores carry it. However, some Phoenix patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Harris Dental.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Phoenix and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Harris Dental, Dr. Dental can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.

Call our Phoenix cosmetic dental office today for speedy relief for your sensitive teeth.
