Stopping by our office for a checkup on tooth sensitivity can be a breeze . . . literally! We’ll use devices (including an air blower) to determine which of your pearly whites are most sensitive and why. Read on to find out a little more about what your appointment could be like.

If you have an appointment with the doctor for an inspection of sensitive pearly whites, the doctor will use a spray gun to blow air onto the chompers and discover which are the most sensitive. In some cases, Dr. Linh Nguyen will be able to recommend desensitization agents or closing off tubules through procedures that can take place during that same visit. In other cases, Dr. Linh Nguyen may recommend restorative dentistry procedures like crowns, which generally necessitate a second visit and some advanced work. Whichever the case is, you can rest easy with the knowledge that Dr. Linh Nguyen and the Best Dentistry staff are working to resolve your discomfort.

Tooth sensitivity is a very rampant condition. While the exact quantity is unknown, it has been estimated that up to 75 percent of the population suffers from tooth sensitivity. This alarming percentage is most likely too high, however, and a safer estimate is about 20 percent. All of the pearly whites can be affected by tooth sensitivity, but canines are the pearly whites most commonly affected.
