For those of you in the Vista area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Oceanside Dental Excellence is here for you.
Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth have been treating this common issue since 2018.
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 Oceanside dentistry practice, our committed to excellence staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity problems and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. Most Vista area drugstores carry it. However, some Oceanside patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Oceanside Dental Excellence.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Oceanside and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Oceanside Dental Excellence, Drs. Dankworth can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
