Desensitizing (root exposure/wear)
Teeth can be sensitive for a number of reasons
- wear along the edges
- root exposure
- leaking fillings
- clenching /grinding
In conjunction with our dentists, the hygiene team will assess your needs and make recommendations for either at home or in office treatments to help you be more comfortable and enjoy the foods you love. That might include a change in toothpaste, a medicated rinse, a varnish, sealant or other medicament over the exposed root. Others may require a bruxing appliance, or restorative treatment to replace missing enamel. Sometimes it’s as simple s switching to an extra soft or sonic toothbrush.
