For those of you in the Portland area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Brookside Dental is here for you.
Dr. Brian Westover DMD and Robert Kowal DDS has been treating this common trouble since 2011.
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 Clackamas 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.
Brian Westover DMD and Robert Kowal DDS usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that minimizes tooth pain after several applications. Most Portland area drugstores carry it. However, some Clackamas patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Brookside Dental.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Clackamas and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Brookside Dental, Dr. Robert Kowal DDS can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
