Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?

Millions of adults struggle with hypersensitive teeth, meaning they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, very sugary or acidic foods and drinks and vigorous tooth brushing. Above the gum line, dentin is protected with a coating of enamel. Unfortunately, as enamel is worn away or decayed, dentin becomes exposed and receptive to sensations that cause painful nerve responses.

This can also occur as the result of receding gums, a common symptom of gum disease. If your teeth are sensitive, please call Kelly Dental Care today at (855) 695-7452 to schedule a consultation.

Regular Dental Cleaning Can Ward Off Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and it is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Early gum disease, or gingivitis, can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, not receiving treatment will lead to a more serious and advanced state of gum disease.

Regular cleanings and check-ups and daily brushing and flossing are key weapons in the fight against these conditions so call Kelly Dental Care today at (855) 695-7452 to schedule a checkup soon.

Selecting a Toothbrush

When it comes to basic dental care, Dr. Kelly will tell you that nothing tops brushing. If you choose to use a manual toothbrush, be sure that it is small enough to reach your entire mouth easily. Also, bristles that are too firm can cause your gums to bleed. Those who prefer something a bit more convenient and comfortable might consider an electric toothbrush. Be sure the head is soft and the bristles move in a back-and-forth motion.

If you have questions about your toothbrush, call us at (855) 695-7452 and we’ll be pleased to offer recommendations.
