For those of you in the Sherman Oaks area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Sherman Oaks Dental is here for you. Doctor Michael Bjornbak has been treating this common problem since 1987.
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 (who are we kidding – it’s pain).
Here in our Sherman Oaks dentistry practice, our knowledgeable dental staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Michael Bjornbak usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Sherman Oaks WalMart stores carry it. However, some Sherman Oaks patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Sherman Oaks Dental.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Sherman Oaks and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Sherman Oaks Dental, Dr. Bjornbak can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
