The Sensitive Subject of Teeth Sensitivity

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

The truth about teeth sensitivity is that at least 40 million adults in the United States suffer from it at some time in their lives. It’s an incredibly common condition, but you can easily ease the agony with the following calming cures.

Signs of Sensitive Teeth

It’s hard to ignore teeth sensitivity because its symptoms are so evident. You will know you have a problem if you feel short, sharp, stinging pains when your teeth come into contact with extremely hot or cold temperatures. A lingering aching sensation often follows this feeling. If the problem persists for more than a few days, you need to schedule a dental evaluation with an affordable dentist. Only an expert in family dentistry can confirm whether your discomfort is due to teeth sensitivity or another problem like a cavity or abscess.

Reduce Your Risk of Teeth Sensitivity

Luckily, teeth sensitivity is treatable and the problem can be completely reversed. But you can’t restrain the pain until you see an expert in family dentistry. Dentists have a wide range of both in-office treatments and at-home regimens that can help soothe and stop teeth sensitivity. These may include:

  • Trying a desensitizing toothpaste
  • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brushing your teeth very gently
  • Getting a prescription for a fluoride gel
  • Having sealants or other protective coatings applied to teeth by an affordable dentist
  • Reducing your intake of acid-producing foods and drinks

With these words of wisdom from experts in family dentistry, you can stop sensitive teeth from being a pain.
