Our dentist can offer tooth desensitization to our patients with the application of fluoride, as it is also helpful to adults to reduce the pain and discomfort caused by exposed root surfaces (receding gums). Regular fluoride application helps eliminate root sensitivity. Our patients have found it helpful to have a series of fluoride treatments in Pekin, Illinois, to reduce their sensitivity, followed by possible at-home applications. We invite you to contact our team at Danner Family Dentistry by calling 309-346-2145. Topical fluoride varnish applications also help to strengthen the enamel on your child’s teeth, making it more difficult for cavities to begin. We look forward to seeing your family for your visit with Dr. Michael Danner.
