For those of you in the Provo area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry is here for you.
Dr. Hammond have been treating this common problem since 1967.
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 Provo 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.
Dr. Hammond usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Provo Wal-Mart stores carry it. However, some Provo patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry.
