For those of you in the St. Louis area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS is here for you. Dr. Martin Buchheit 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 Florissant 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.
Martin Buchheit usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most St. Louis WalMart and Hazelwood Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Florissant patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Florissant and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, Dr. Buchheit can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
