For those of you in the Orange CA area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee, or cringe each time you brush or floss, Michelsen Dental is here for you.
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 reach the nerve cells in the teeth, causing discomfort.
At Michelsen Dental, we usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that minimizes tooth pain after several applications. Most toothpaste brands make one. However, some people may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
