For those individuals who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Just Smiles is here for you. Doctor Phil Chahine has been treating this common dilemma since 2003.
Daily Oral Hygiene
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).
Need a Refresher on Brushing?
Here in our Hilliard dentistry practice, Doctor Chahine can figure out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits. Our dental hygienists can also give you a refresher course on proper brushing and flossing. While you’re at it, schedule a professional dental cleaning.
Talk to Doctor Chahine About Tooth Sensitivity
Doctor Chahine usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens 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 Chahine can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
