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, Marcos Ortega DDS is here for you.
Dr. Marcos Ortega 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.
Here in our San Diego 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.
Marcos Ortega usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most San Diego Wal-Mart and Hillcrest Sav-On stores carry it. However, some San Diego patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Marcos Ortega DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in San Diego and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Marcos Ortega DDS, Dr. Ortega can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
