Treatment For Sensitive Teeth

Is your toothbrushing technique causing tooth sensitivity?

For those men and women who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS is here for you. Doctor Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy has been treating this common dilemma for San Luis Obispo residents since 1988.

Daily Oral Hygiene

The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can result in receding gums, which creates 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).

Need a Refresher on Brushing?

Here in our San Luis Obispo dentistry practice, we can figure out if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits. Our dental hygienists can also give you a refresher course on proper brushing and flossing. While you’re at it, schedule a professional dental cleaning.

Talk to Doctor McNeil-Amorteguy About Tooth Sensitivity

Doctor McNeil-Amorteguy usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth and want to have your teeth whitened. Doctor McNeil-Amorteguy can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening systems will work for you.
