Tough Treatments For Teeth Sensitivity

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

If you’re troubled by teeth sensitivity and can’t find real relief, then it’s time to discover the many treatments to deal with this sensitive subject. Visit a family dentistry expert to find out about all of the options that will put a smile back on your face.

Understand the Common Sources of Sensitive Teeth

Dentin—the layer beneath your tooth enamel and gums—becomes exposed as your enamel and gums wear away, resulting in teeth sensitivity. The dentin is connected to the nerves of your tooth, so when it comes into contact with extremes in temperature or touch, it produces pangs of pain. The only way to find out the cause of your teeth sensitivity is to get an examination from an expert in family dentistry. The majority of cases are caused by these factors:

  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth enamel erosion
  • Gum recession

How to Soothe the Pain

Since teeth sensitivity is so common, there are a variety of available and affordable treatments today. These remedies range from at-home practices to enhance your oral hygiene routine to in-office procedures performed by experts in family dentistry. Depending on your level of teeth sensitivity, an affordable dentist can guide you toward the treatment that’s best for you. The majority of the cases can be soothed in the following ways:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Brush thoroughly, but gently.
  • Select a non-abrasive toothpaste or one that’s made for teeth sensitivity.
  • Look into teeth bonding to protect your remaining dentin.
  • Surgical gum grafts to cover receded gums may be applied in severe cases by an affordable dentist.
