For those of you in the Arlington TX area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is here for you.
Dr. Stephen Ratcliff has been treating this common problem since 1990.
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 Arlington TX family dentistry practice, 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.
Dr. Ratcliff usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Arlington TX Wal-Mart and Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Arlington TX patients may need restorative dentistry, available at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Arlington TX and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Ratcliff can determine which professional teeth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
