For those of you in the Jefferson City area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Jefferson City Dental Care is here for you.
Dr. Justin Johnson has been treating this common issue since 2008.
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 Jefferson City dentistry practice, our friendly staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity problems and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Justin Johnson usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. Most Jefferson City area drugstores carry it. However, some Jefferson City patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Jefferson City Dental Care.
