For those of you in the Lolo area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Felton Dental Care is here for you. Doctor Brett Felton has been treating this common problem since 2007.
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 Missoula 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.
Brett Felton usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Lolo Wal-Mart and Frenchtown Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Missoula patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Felton Dental Care.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Missoula and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Felton Dental Care, Dr. Felton can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
