White Family Dental Treatment For Sensitive Teeth

For those of you in the Leola area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, White Family Dental is here for you. Doctor Ed White has been treating this common problem since 1984.

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 Elizabethtown 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.

Ed White usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Leola Wal-Mart and Hershey Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Elizabethtown patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at White Family Dental.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Elizabethtown and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at White Family Dental, Dr. White can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
