Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Fargo?

For those of you in the Fargo area 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 problem since 1996.

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 Fargo dentistry practice, our high tech staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity issues and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Dennis Hetland usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Fargo area drugstores carry it. 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 in Fargo 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.
