For those of you in the Horseshoe Bay area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Ritchie Dental Group is here for you.
Dr. Greg Ritchie has been treating this common issue since 2000.
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 Marble Falls dentistry practice, our friendly and comprehensive staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity troubles and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Greg Ritchie usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. Most Horseshoe Bay area drugstores carry it. However, some Marble Falls patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Ritchie Dental Group.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Marble Falls and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Ritchie Dental Group, Dr. Ritchie can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
