For those of you in the Custer area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Destination Dentistry is here for you.
Drs. Dan Custis and Rebecca Kretschmar have been treating this common issue since 1978.
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 Custer dentistry practice, our knowledgeable staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity issues and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Dan Custis and Rebecca Kretschmar usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that lessens tooth pain after several applications. Most Custer area drugstores carry it. However, some Custer patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Destination Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Custer and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Destination Dentistry, Drs. Rebecca Kretschmar and Dan Custis can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
