Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Oklahoma City?

For those of you in the Moore 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.

Doctor Sterling Stalder has 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 Oklahoma City 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.

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

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