Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Friendswood?

For those of you in the Houston area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Montz and Maher Dental Group is here for you.

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 Friendswood dentistry practice, our friendly staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity troubles and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

We usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Houston area drugstores carry it. However, some Friendswood patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Montz and Maher Dental Group.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Friendswood and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Montz and Maher Dental Group, our team can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.

Montz and Maher Dental Group offers expert care in general and cosmetic dentistry. If you’re nervous about dental care, we also offer sedation dentistry. Call us today to get reliable information about improving your smile.
