For those people who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is here for you. Drs. Kevin Bass and Lawrence Black have been treating tooth pain in North Penn since 1989.
Where is This Pain Coming From?
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about 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 and tooth pain in North Penn.
Dealing with Tooth Pain in North Penn
Here at our expert dental practice, Drs. Lawrence Black and Kevin Bass can find out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity. We can also get you on your way to proper oral care habits that will reduce tooth sensitivity and improve overall health. Our professional dental team usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps curb tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
