Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Birmingham?

For those of you in the Birmingham area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Koch Aesthetic Dentistry is here for you.

Doctor J. Paul Koch has been treating this common problem since 2000.

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 Birmingham cosmetic dentistry practice, our knowledgeable staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.

J. Paul Koch usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Birmingham Wal-Mart and Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Birmingham patients may need in-office procedures such as laser dentistry available at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Birmingham and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, Dr. Koch can determine which professional teeth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
