For those of you in the San Diego area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Jeff Gray DDS is here for you. Dr. Jeff Gray has been treating this common problem since 1986.
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 La Mesa 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.
Jeff Gray usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most San Diego WalMart and Alpine Sav-On stores carry it. However, some La Mesa patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Jeff Gray DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in La Mesa and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Jeff Gray DDS, Dr. Gray can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
