For those of you in the St. Louis area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center is here for you.
Doctor Martin Buchheit has been treating this common issue since 2015.
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 Chesterfield dentistry practice, our friendly staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity dilemmas and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Martin Buchheit usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most St. Louis area drugstores carry it. However, some Chesterfield patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Chesterfield and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center, Doctor Buchheit can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
