Demystifying Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth Sensitivity

Have you ever felt a sharp rush of pain while eating a frosty treat or sipping some hot tea? Perhaps the act of brushing your teeth or enjoying a piece of citrus fruit triggers this type of tooth sensitivity. If so, you are likely experiencing the signs of sensitive teeth, which are the result of eroded tooth enamel and exposure of the nerves. However, there may be other causes for the pain you are feeling, which is why a visit with an affordable dentist in Ocoee is always your best bet for getting to the heart of the matter.

The best dental care treatment for tooth sensitivity will be determined by the cause of it. If you are suffering from sensitive teeth because exposed dentin and nerves, using a desensitizing toothpaste can help. Your dentist in Ocoee may also perform fluoride treatments to help strengthen the enamel of sensitive teeth. If receding gums are the cause, your family dentistry expert apply a dental sealant to block irritants from reaching the nerve. A root canal procedure is sometimes needed to deal with problems in the dental pulp.

Some of the dental care techniques that will help tooth sensitivity include using a soft-bristled toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste, using gentle brushing motions, and flossing every day. If you grind your teeth, especially at night, see your family dentistry professional to see if a mouth guard would be useful in preventing tooth fractures sensitivity and fractures.

You can also ward off tooth sensitivity by avoiding carbonated beverages, acidic fruits, and wine, which can erode tooth enamel. If you do consume them, drink milk or water or soon afterwards to neutralize the effects of the acid. However, brushing too soon after having these things can cause additional erosion that could otherwise have been avoided.
