For those of you in the Detroit area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry is here for you.
Dr. Steven Gustafson has been treating this common issue since 1984.
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 Royal Oak dentistry practice, our friendly 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.
Steven Gustafson usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Detroit area drugstores carry it. However, some Royal Oak patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Royal Oak and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry, Dr. Gustafson can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
