For those of you in the Salt Lake City area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Salt Lake Dental Care is here for you.
Dr. Clint Blackwood has been treating this common trouble since 2005.
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 Murray dentistry practice, our high-quality staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity issues and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Clint Blackwood usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Salt Lake City area drugstores carry it. However, some Murray patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Salt Lake Dental Care.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Murray and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Salt Lake Dental Care, Dr. Blackwood can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
