Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Elgin?

Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Elgin?

For those of you in the Elgin area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, David Rice DDS is here for you.

The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in gum disease or 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 Elgin dental 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. Rice usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Elgin drug stores carry it. However, some Elgin patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at David Rice DDS.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Elgin and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at David Rice DDS, we can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
