SHOULD I SEE A DENTIST ABOUT SENSITIVE TEETH?

If your teeth are sensitive to temperature changes or produce pain when chewing certain foods, it may be time to call Beaverton family dentist Dr. Michael Negru to schedule an examination. Tooth sensitivity is not always a pressing concern, but frequent discomfort or persistent reactions should be examined by an experienced dental professional.

If you are struggling with increased tooth sensitivity, please call to schedule an appointment at our comfortable Beaverton office.

To schedule your appointment with Dr. Negru, please contact Bright Smile Dental Care today. Located in Beaverton, our family dentist serves patients living in Aloha, Hillsboro, and all surrounding Oregon communities.
