For those of you in the Hemet area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time they brush or floss, Larrondo Dentistry is here for you.
Dr. Jorge E. Larrondo has been treating this common problem for the past five years.
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 Hemet 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.
Dr. Larrondo usually recommends over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most drug stores, Wal-Mart, Target and grocery stores carry it. However, some Hemet patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Larrondo Dentistry.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Hemet and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Larrondo Dentistry, Dr. Larrondo can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
