Ouch! Are Your Teeth Sensitive?

Tips for dental emergency in Mountlake Terrace

For those of you in the Edmonds area who feel pain when you sip your morning coffee or who cringe each time you brush or floss, Emerald City Smiles is here for you.

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.
