For those of you in the Cincinnati area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Timothy J Kitzmiller DDS is here for you. Doctor Timothy Kitzmiller has been treating this common problem since 1988.
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 (who are we kidding – it’s pain).
Here in our Milford dentistry practice, our knowledgeable dental staff can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits.
Timothy Kitzmiller usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that will alleviate tooth pain after several applications. Most Cincinnati WalMart and Cincinnati Sav-On stores carry it. However, some Milford patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments available at Timothy J Kitzmiller DDS.
Don’t worry if you have sensitive teeth in Milford and want to have your teeth whitened. Here at Timothy J Kitzmiller DDS, Dr. Kitzmiller can determine which professional tooth whitening or at-home whitening procedures will work for you.
