For those individuals 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. Dr.David Montz has been treating this common problem since 1997.
Daily Oral Hygiene
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can lead to receding gums, which results in 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).
Need a Refresher on Brushing?
Here in our Friendswood dentistry practice, Dr.Montz can figure out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits. Our dental hygienists can also give you a refresher course on proper brushing and flossing. While you’re at it, schedule a professional dental cleaning.
Talk to Dr. Montz About Tooth Sensitivity
Dr. Montz usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Dr. Montz can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
