Eliminating Tooth Whitening Sensitivity

added on: September 26, 2019 | By: Dr. Earl Larson

A new systematic review published in the Journal of the American Dental Association(JADA) indicates that anti-inflammatory analgesics like ibuprofen do not have a significant effect on tooth sensitivity caused by tooth whitening.  ADA member dentist, Dr. Earl Larson at Wildhorse Dental, says this review further stresses the need to work with a skilled cosmetic dentist when tooth bleaching is desired.  Dr. Larson indicates that many of his Chesterfield and Wildwood dental patients require extra measures to eliminate sensitivity that may occur with tooth bleaching.  Because he sees many tooth whitening patients from the new patient exam cleaning and x-ray offer that he routinely runs in Val-Pak, Earl Larson DDS is well versed in which of the many tooth bleaching procedures would be best for his patients.
