For those of you in the Tampa area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Kernagis Dental Excellence is here for you.
Dr. Richard Kernagis has been treating this common issue since 2001.
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 Tampa dentistry practice, our comfortable 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.
Richard Kernagis usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that helps curb tooth pain after several applications. Most Tampa area drugstores carry it. However, some Tampa patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Kernagis Dental Excellence.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Tampa and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Kernagis Dental Excellence, Dr. Kernagis can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
