Tooth sensitivity is one of the most common complaints among dental patients in the United States. Sensitivity is caused by the movement of fluid within tiny tunnels located in the layer of tissue found under the protective enamel - providing a pathway to the nerve. Whether the tooth enamel is worn down or due to receding gums, those tunnels can be left exposed
There are many factors to be aware of that can cause sensitivity. Some examples are:
There are many daily opportunities to fight tooth decay. Through brushing, flossing, using mouthwash and even changing diet habits you can lower the chances of growing tooth sensitivity.
Our dentists are essential in both protecting teeth and restoring those that have already sustained damage. From desensitizing gels and pastes to sealants and filling materials, we can help reduce tooth sensitivity.

The Six Month Smiles program is designed to straighten your teeth at a fraction of time compared to traditional braces. Due to a much shorter treatment plan, Six Month Smiles is generally less expensive. Through latest digital technology coupled with an experienced orthodontic professional like Dr. Kile, this method has proven to be both reliable and safe. And even better, they come in invisible aligners or clear braces, making them nearly invisible.
So what can you expect?
Upon our initial consultation we will thoroughly exam your teeth and gums to determine if you are a good candidate and if Six Month Smiles will be suitable for your needs.
After the placement of your aligners or braces you will need to come in for adjustments. Depending on your individual case, you may receive 3-7 adjustments over the next few months. On average, braces are removed and you can show off your new smile in 6 months.
