For those of you in the West Haven area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Roy Dental Care is here for you.
doctor Reggie Whitaker has been treating this common issue since 2013.
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 Roy dentistry practice, our relationship-focused staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity dilemmas and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Reggie Whitaker usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. Most West Haven area drugstores carry it. However, some Roy patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Roy Dental Care.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Roy and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Roy Dental Care, doctor Whitaker can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
