How to Handle Sensitive Teeth and Gums

Sensitive Teeth

If sensitive teeth are causing you trouble, you’re not alone. Many people suffer from sensitivity when brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking. Sensitive teeth and gums usually result from the wearing away of tooth enamel, which exposes the root of the tooth and leaves you susceptible to pain. But other causes included a cracked tooth, cavities, strong whiteners, and certain dental procedures.

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with tender teeth because there are many treatments and tactics to help alleviate the ache. To learn how to help sensitive teeth, visit an expert in family dentistry to get to the root of your sensitivity and see if these remedies can bring you relief.

  • Try a Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth Sensitivity has become so common that are many desensitizing toothpastes available today. They can soothe the sting of sensitive teeth with just a few applications.
  • Fortify with Fluoride You can strengthen the tooth’s enamel and ease the pangs of pain by having fluoride applied to sensitive spots on teeth.
  • Ask About a Root Canal No one wants a root canal, but you may need this dental procedure to treat the painful problem at the tooth’s tender center.
  • Seal the Sensitivity Since sensitive teeth and gums are often caused when receding gums expose the tooth’s root, dentists have started applying sealants to these sensitive roots to stop the sting at the source.

In addition to these helpful hints, some other suggestions for sensitive teeth and gums include brushing with a gentle touch, flossing with extreme care, and avoiding very acidic foods. All of these tips can treat the trouble and help you feel less sensitive.
