Do you suffer from sensitive teeth? Have you tried a variety of treatments and nothing seems to be working? At Prehn Dental Offices, we want you to be comfortable with your teeth. If you suffer from extreme tooth sensitivity, Dr. Frederick Prehn may recommend SootheRx®, a toothpaste made specifically to provide relief from sensitive teeth. By conducting a thorough examination, and by monitoring your progress with other treatments, our dentist will help determine if SootheRx is right for you. We invite you to contact our office today at 715-842-1270 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Frederick Prehn if you feel that you can benefit from receiving SootheRx toothpaste in Wausau, Wisconsin.
Tooth sensitivity can be caused by a variety of things. A common source of tooth sensitivity is gum recession or reduction of your tooth enamel near the gum line. With both of these issues, the soft tissue and nerve of your tooth can become exposed, making it extremely sensitive. This can cause severe pain when consuming hot or cold beverages or food, sugary foods, and acidic foods.
SootheRx is a prescription toothpaste that you can receive from your dentist to help reduce your teeth’s sensitivity. Just like a regular toothpaste, you brush your teeth with SootheRx twice a day for two weeks. Then, you switch back to your regular toothpaste and apply SootheRx only once a week to maintain your sensitivity protection. In no time, you can get back to drinking, eating, and enjoying all of your favorite foods without worrying about the pain.
SootheRx is different than most other sensitivity toothpastes. The majority of sensitivity toothpastes contain a numbing agent called potassium nitrate that only masks the pain that comes from tooth sensitivity. With SootheRx, there is no potassium nitrate. Instead, SootheRx naturally seals your tooth’s tissue and protects the nerves from being exposed to extreme temperatures and sugary or acidic foods. SootheRx does this with the help of NovaMin®, an advanced technology that has been created as a result of 30 years of medical research on bone and tooth repair. Because SootheRx naturally protects your teeth, you can receive true pain and sensitivity relief throughout your life. We invite you to call or visit our office today to learn more about how SootheRx can help reduce your tooth sensitivity and restore comfort to your smile.
