Are Your Teeth Sensitive In Boise?

For those of you in the Boise area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Blaisdell Family Dentistry is here for you.

Doctors Lynn R. & Craig Blaisdell have been treating this common problem since 1981.

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 Boise 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.

Lynn R. & Craig Blaisdell usually recommend an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Boise Wal-Mart and Nampa Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Boise patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Blaisdell Family Dentistry.

Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Boise and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Blaisdell Family Dentistry, we can determine which professional tooth whitening of at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
