For those of you who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, The Sugar House Dentist – The Sugar House Dentist is here for you.
Dr. Jared Theurer has been treating this common problem since 2006.
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 Salt Lake 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.
Jared Theuer usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. Most Salt Lake City area drugstores carry it. 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. Our staff will determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
