Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Shelby Township?

For those of you in the Detroit area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, McKinley-Holloway Legacy Dentistry in Shelby Township MI is here for you.

Doctor Ray McKinley has been treating this common problem since the practice opened.

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 Shelby Township dentistry practice, our welcoming staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity dilemmas and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

Ray McKinley usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. Most Detroit area drugstores carry it. However, some Shelby Township patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at McKinley-Holloway Legacy Dentistry in Shelby Township MI.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Shelby Township and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at McKinley-Holloway Legacy Dentistry in Shelby Township MI, Doctor McKinley can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
