For those of you in the San Mateo area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Michael A. Wong, DDS is here for you.
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Wong has been treating this common problem since 1983.
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 San Mateo sedation 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. Michael Wong usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most San Mateo Wal-Mart and Sav-On stores carry it.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in San Mateo and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Michael A. Wong, DDS, Dr. Wong can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
