For those of you in the Indianapolis area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or cringe each time you brush or floss, Dental Care Today in Fishers is here for you. Your dental health matters to us.
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 Fishers dentistry practice, our friendly staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity troubles and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Indianapolis area drugstores carry it. However, some Fishers patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Fishers and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Dental Care Today we can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
