How to Help Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive Teeth

Problems with sensitive teeth and gums can affect your quality of life, but once you learn how to help sensitive teeth cope with the daily challenges of hot and cold foods and routine dental care, you can start to enjoy eating again. The sharp, radiating pain caused by tooth sensitivity has many potential causes including cavities, cracked, or chipped teeth or use of bleaching products. You may even experience sensitivity after a dental procedure. Here are answers to common questions about managing painful symptoms.

How to Relieve Symptoms of Sensitive Teeth and Gums

  • Try over-the-counter desensitizing toothpastes. It may take several applications to obtain results, but these products can often help block the pain associated with tooth sensitivity.
  • Use a fluoride mouthwash, or ask your dentist about professional fluoride treatments.
  • Limit your intake of acidic foods such as carbonated beverages, citrus fruits, yogurt, and wine, and brush immediately after consuming them. When you can’t avoid acidic beverages, use a straw to reduce direct contact with tooth surfaces.
  • Brush twice every day with a soft toothbrush. Don’t scrub too vigorously. Avoid brushing your teeth too hard or too often.
  • If you tend to grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about using a mouth guard.

Let Your Dentist in Brandon Help

If your symptoms are caused by a dental problem like tooth decay or a cracked tooth, you’ll need professional dental care. If home remedies fail, see your dentist as soon as possible. Common professional treatments include application of dental sealants to cover exposed roots of sensitive teeth and root canal treatments in cases where extensive damage is present.
