For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Designer Smiles is here for you. Dr.Dennis Hetland has been treating this common trouble since 1996.
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can lead to 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 (who are we kidding – it’s pain).
Here in our Fargo dentistry practice, Dr.Hetland can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dennis Hetland usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. However, some Fargo patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Designer Smiles.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Designer Smiles, Dr. Hetland can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
