Las Vegas Dentist Explores New Solution for Tooth Sensitivity in NNOHA Newsletter
Dr. Joseph Willardsen discusses the efficacy of an emerging new product, TEETHMATE™ DESENSITIZER, for the treatment of tooth sensitivity.
Las Vegas, NV – Tooth sensitivity is one of the leading causes of dental discomfort and poses a significant concern for both dentists and patients. In the Fall 2015 issue of the National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA) quarterly newsletter, Las Vegas dentist Joseph Willardsen, DDS addresses the problem of tooth sensitivity, discusses shortcomings of tooth desensitizers and varnishes, and presents evidence in favor of an effective new desensitizing solution on the market: TEETHMATE™ DESENSITIZER.
Patient comfort is a primary concern for Dr. Willardsen and tooth sensitivity can often keep patients from receiving the dental work they desperately need. In his article, “New Treatment and Technology for Hypersensitive Patients,” Dr. Willardsen explains his frustration with “ACP-based fluoride varnishes and most of the desensitizers on the market,” claiming that the effects of treatment lacked the efficacy and duration that he and his patients desired. After reading a clinical study in The Dental Advisor in 2014 about a new hydroxyapatite desensitizer, Dr. Willardsen was intrigued by its simplicity and surprising success rates. He soon tried the product, TEETHMATE™ DESENSITIZER, at True Dentistry, his practice in Las Vegas. Over the next 18 months, Dr. Willardsen was impressed by the results he was seeing with TEETHMATE™ and incorporated the product into many of the procedures and treatments he performs. He notes that TEETHMATE™ has been effective in improving patient comfort before, during, and after dental work. From simple cleanings and teeth whitening, to complex restorations and crown preparations, Dr. Willardsen says TEETHMATE™ has become an essential product for both himself and his team of dental hygienists.
For Dr. Willardsen, having a solution for tooth sensitivity has resolved a significant hurdle to helping his patients achieve and maintain good oral health. “I finally feel I have a solution for sensitivity that works quickly and effectively. I can confidently treat my patients right then and there, knowing I will get results,” Dr. Willardsen says. The greatest testament comes from his patients, many of whom suffer from hypersensitivity, reporting a noticeable change in their degree of sensitivity since Dr. Willardsen began using TEETHMATE™. Ultimately, Dr. Willardsen says his personal experience utilizing the product, combined with scientific fact and clinical data, provides a compelling argument in favor of TEETHMATE™ DESENSITIZER.
