Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Monkton?

For those of you in the Monkton area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Hereford Dental Health is here for you.

Doctor Craig Longenecker has been treating this common problem since 1998.

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 at Hereford Dental Health in Monkton, our knowledgeable staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Craig Longenecker usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Parkton Wal-Mart and Sparks Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Monkton patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Hereford Dental Health.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Monkton and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Hereford Dental Health, Dr. Longenecker can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
