Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Cary?

For those of you in the Raleigh area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Cary Family Dental is here for you.

Dr. Allan Acton has been treating this common issue since 2003.

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 Cary dentistry practice, our welcoming 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.

Allan Acton usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Raleigh area drugstores carry it. However, some Cary patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Cary Family Dental.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Cary and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Cary Family Dental, Dr. Acton can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
