Effective Treatment of Sensitive Teeth

Tooth Sensitivity

If you have ever felt a sudden, jarring wave of pain in one or more teeth after having a hot or cold beverage, you know the discomfort tooth sensitivity can bring. Caused by exposure of the substance known as dentin, tooth sensitivity results from air or liquid reaching the nerve and producing instantaneous discomfort. The good news is that there are viable dental care techniques that really can provide relief.

The only way to truly know if dental pain is the result of tooth sensitivity or a more serious problem is to undergo a thorough examination by a qualified, affordable dentist in Springfield. It may be that the pain felt in a tooth is actually a caused by gum disease or a cavity. In either of those cases, a specialized dental care treatment can be performed to eliminate the pain.

But, if the discomfort is actually due to erosion of the enamel and exposure of the dentin, it is worthwhile for you to explore the options available for treating tooth sensitivity at the dentist or the dental care techniques you can use at home. A family dentistry professional will be able to utilize a varnish or foam containing fluoride as a way to strengthen enamel and reduce exposure of the dentin. Alternatively, your dentist in Springfield may choose to apply a bonding agent to help seal the surface of the dentin and act as a barrier to painful stimuli.

Effective home dental care for the treatment of tooth sensitivity includes things such as brushing with a very soft-bristled brush and toothpaste that is low in abrasive content. The use of toothpastes created specifically for sensitive teeth can also provide relief. Your dentist may even provide you with a special type of toothpaste containing a high concentration of fluoride intended boost the strength of your teeth’s enamel.
