Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Norman OK?

General Dentistry Norman OK

For those of you in the Norman OK area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, OKC Smiles is here for you.

We have been treating this common problem since 1986.

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 Norman OK cosmetic 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.

OKC Smiles usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Norman OK Wal-Mart and grocery stores carry it. However, some Norman area patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at OKC Smiles.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Norman OK and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at OKC Smiles, we can determine which professional teeth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.

Call our Norman OK area general dentistry office today to get relief from your sensitive teeth.
