For those of you in the Tampa area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Five Star Dental Care is here for you. Doctor Jeff Bynum has been treating this common problem since 1996.
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 (who are we kidding – it’s pain).
Here in our Valrico dentistry practice, our knowledgeable dental staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Jeff Bynum usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. But some Valrico patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Five Star Dental Care.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Five Star Dental Care, Dr. Bynum can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
