For those of you in the San Francisco area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Kenneth Hovden DDS is here for you.
Dr. Kenneth Hovden has been treating this common trouble 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 Daly City dentistry practice, our professional staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity problems and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Kenneth Hovden usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that diminishes tooth pain after several applications. Most San Francisco area drugstores carry it. However, some Daly City patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Kenneth Hovden DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Daly City and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Kenneth Hovden DDS, Dr. Hovden can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
