Sensitive Teeth Treatment

If you have extremely sensitive teeth, you will not be able to eat what you want.

Tooth sensitivity is a common problem that is associated with discomfort or pain in the teeth when eating certain foods and exposed to extreme temperatures.

The pain is often sharp and sudden, and often – recurring.

Fortunately, sensitive teeth can be treated, and the pain can be addressed.

Causes of Sensitive Teeth

Here are the some of the causes of sensitive teeth:

Z Aggressive brushing

Brushing your teeth too hard may wear away the tooth enamel.

If you brush faster than your floss, you may need to change that habit in order to save your tooth enamel.

Z Lack of twice-daily hygiene routine

Failing to properly brush, floss and rinse your teeth promote tartar build-up along the gumline to the point that only your dentist can remove it.

Z Receding gums

You may not notice that your gums begin to recede from your teeth. If it happens, your are exposing sensitive nerve branches living in the tooth’s root.

Z Acidic diet

If you frequently consume bitter or sour food and drinks, this could contribute to stripping away tooth enamel.

Check your diet for highly acidic foods and beverages, limit your intake of these foods, drink with a straw, and rinse your mouth with water after consuming them.

Z Sugary diet

Sugary treats such as candies and cakes can promote bacteria to grow, leading to eroded gums that expose sensitive areas of teeth.

Treatment for Sensitive Teeth

Teeth sensitivity never really disappear; the symptoms may reduce or even seem to go away for a while.

Unless the reason teeth became sensitive is eliminated, the sensitivity will keep recurring.

Listed below are home treatments suggested by your Norlane dentist.

  • Desensitising toothpaste. There are brands of toothpaste available for the sensitive teeth. To make sure, call or see your Norlane dentist and find out which works for you.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head.
  • Avoid highly acidic foods and beverages.
  • Use a fluoride-containing mouthwash daily.
  • Avoid teeth grinding. Consider getting a mouthguard if you do.

Also, the following are some dental procedures that may reduce tooth sensitivity:

  • Dental bonding, crowns or inlays. This can fix flaws or decay-causing sensitivity
  • Fluoride gel or varnish
  • Surgical gum graft. This will protect the tooth root and reduce sensitivity if the gum tissue has eroded from the source
  • Root canal treatment. The last-resort treatment for serious tooth sensitivity that has not been helped by other methods
