For those individuals who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Distinctive Dental Services – Dr. Scott Elrod is here for you. Dr. Scott Elrod has been treating this common trouble since 1998.
Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about 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 (who are we kidding—it’s pain).
Here in our Lake Jackson dentistry practice, Dr. Elrod can find out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dr. Elrod usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Dr. Elrod can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening system will work for you.
Call our dental office today at 979-297-0337 to get relief for your sensitive teeth.
