For those of you in the Royal Oak area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Duffield Dentistry is here for you.
Dr. Larry Duffield has been treating this common problem since 1990.
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 Royal Oak general 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.
Dr. Larry Duffield usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Royal Oak area Wal-Mart and grocery stores carry it. However, some Royal Oak patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Duffield Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Royal Oak and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Duffield Dentistry, Dr. Duffield can determine which professional tooth bleaching or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
