Sensitive Teeth Treatment
If hot or cold food and beverages hurt your teeth; maybe it’s time for you to visit your Doncaster East dentist about the chance that you have sensitive teeth.
If you have sensitive teeth, activities like brushing, eating, and drinking can cause sharp, temporary pain in your teeth.
Usually, sensitive teeth result from eroded tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Tooth discomfort may also be caused by other factors, such as cavities, cracked or chipped teeth, worn fillings, or gum disease.
If you are uncomfortable with your sensitive teeth, visit your Doncaster East dentist. During your dental visit, you will undergo tests to find out the right treatment plan for you.
Your dentist might recommend:
Desensitising toothpaste. After several applications, desensitising toothpaste can help stop pain related to sensitive teeth. Ask your dentist which product might work best for you.
Fluoride treatments. Your Doncaster East dentist applies fluoride to the sensitive areas of your teeth to nourish the tooth enamel and reduce pain. Using prescription fluoride at home, administered through a custom tray, can also help.
Desensitising or bonding treatments. The application, from time to time, of bonding resin to sensitive root surfaces can treat exposed root surfaces. A local anaesthetic might be needed during the treatment.
Gum graft. If your tooth root has lost surrounding gum tissue, a small amount of gum tissue can be transplanted from elsewhere in your mouth to the affected site. This can protect exposed roots and reduce pain due to teeth sensitivity.
Root canal treatment. If sensitive teeth cause severe pain and other treatments aren’t effective, your Doncaster East dentist might recommend a root canal treatment. This is a procedure used to fix problems in the tooth’s soft core and considered the most successful technique to eliminate tooth sensitivity.
Preventing Teeth Sensitivity
Prevent sensitive teeth from coming back. Gently brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
Also, don’t forget to floss daily. Avoid using corrosive toothpaste. If you grind your teeth, ask your Doncaster East dentist about a mouthguard. Tooth grinding can fracture teeth and cause sensitivity.
Due to acids they contain, foods and beverages such as carbonated drinks, citrus fruits and wine can wear away small amounts of tooth enamel over time. Use a straw to limit contact with your teeth when you drink acidic beverages.
Drink plenty of water to balance the acid levels in your mouth after eating or drinking an acidic substance.
