Sensitive Teeth Tips From Your Midtown Dentist

For those of you in the NYC area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Marc J. Beshar, DMD is here for you.

Doctor Marc Beshar has been treating this common problem since 1990.

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 New York City 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.

Marc Beshar usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most NYC Wal-Mart and Manhattan Sav-On stores carry it. However, some New York City patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Marc J. Beshar, DMD.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in New York City and want to get teeth whitening. Here at Marc J. Beshar, DMD, Dr. Beshar can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
