For those of you in the Dallas area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, The Carrollton Dentist is here for you.
Doctor Melissa Rodriguez has been treating this common problem since 2003.
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 or even a toothache.
Here in our Carrollton dentistry practice, our knowledgeable staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Melissa Rodriguez usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Dallas Wal-Mart and Carrollton Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Carrollton patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at The Carrollton Dentist.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Carrollton and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at The Carrollton Dentist, Dr. Rodriguez can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
