January is past us now, can you detect a little more light at the end of the day?
This is a sure sign that winter is losing its grip on us.
Despite the longer days, the temperatures are still low. Sub zero in fact.
Last week in Horsham, we had rain, sleet, snow, hail and sunshine, all in one day!
It is normal for our teeth to react to severe cold, for example, an ice cube, but they can over-react to cold and hot drinks with a sharp pain.
We call that Tooth Sensitivity. Sometimes there is an underlying cause for this sensitivity.
Tooth decay, cracked, worn teeth and gum disease can all produce tooth sensitivity.
A regular check up and dental treatment will identify and treat these problems.
Often there is no obvious cause for tooth sensitivity and desensitising toothpastes can help in some of these cases.
Where toothpastes do not work, we can still remove that sharp stab of pain that tooth sensitivity causes.
I have developed a treatment that uses the technology derived from my twenty years experience of tooth whitening and applying it to treating tooth sensitivity.
This has proved to be effective in the treatment of the more severe cases.
