For those individuals who feel pain when they sip their morning coffee or who cringe each time they brush or floss, VeroDental is here. Doctor Alexander Harris has been treating this common problem since 2021.
Daily Oral Hygiene
The first line of defense against tooth sensitivity is proper oral hygiene. Incorrect brushing and over-brushing can bring about receding gums, which creates 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 (who are we kidding—it’s pain).
Need a Refresher on Brushing?
Here in our Lehi dentistry practice, doctor Harris can determine if your brushing style is contributing to your tooth sensitivity and get you on your way to proper oral care habits. Our dental hygienists can also give you a refresher course on proper brushing and flossing. While you’re at it, schedule a professional dental cleaning.

Doctor Harris usually recommends an over-the-counter desensitizing toothpaste that reduces tooth pain after several applications. However, some patients may need in-office procedures such as fluoride gel treatments.
