For those of you in the Edmonds area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Edmonds Woodway Dental Care is here for you.
Dr. Michael Hrankowski has been treating this common problem since 1982.
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 Mountlake Terrace dentistry practice, our passionate 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.
Michael Hrankowski usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Edmonds area drugstores carry it. However, some Mountlake Terrace patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Edmonds Woodway Dental Care.
