For those of you in the Dilworth area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA is here for you.
Dr. Christopher Bowman has been treating this common trouble since 1996.
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 Charlotte dentistry practice, our friendly 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.
Christopher Bowman usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that minimizes tooth pain after several applications. Most Dilworth area drugstores carry it. However, some Charlotte patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Charlotte and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Christopher A. Bowman, DDS, PA, Dr. Bowman can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
