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

If you have a checkup with the doctor for an inspection of sensitive teeth, the doctor will use a spray gun to blow air onto the pearly whites and determine which are the most sensitive. In a few cases, Dr. Avi Mizrachi will be able to suggest desensitization agents or closing off tubules through procedures that can take place during that visit. In other cases, Dr. Avi Mizrachi might suggest restorative dentistry procedures such as crowns, which generally require a second visit and some preparation work. Whichever the case is, you can rest easy understanding that Dr. Avi Mizrachi and the Columbia Dental Excellence staff are working to resolve your problem.

Tooth sensitivity is a very prevalent condition. While the exact number 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 figure is about 20 percent. All of the chompers can be affected by tooth sensitivity, but canines are the pearly whites most commonly affected.
