3 Simple Steps to Stop Your Struggle with Sensitive Teeth and Gums

Sensitive Teeth

If you can no longer take the pain, then it’s time to find out how to help sensitive teeth. You know that you have the dental dilemma if you sharp sensations when tasting things that are cold, hot, sweet, or sour. Today, the problem has gotten so prevalent that there are many ways to soothe the sting and relieve the pain.

Tooth sensitivity is usually caused when tooth enamel wears away and the tooth’s root becomes exposed, but it also results from tooth decay and cracked teeth. The condition can also come from gum disease, receded gums, and aggressive brushing because these all expose the delicate nerves within the roots of the tooth. Then when the roots come into contact with certain extreme sensations, they strike the super-sensitive nerves and cause sharp pangs of pain.

Sensitive teeth and gums are not only treatable, but also preventable by practicing good dental care. This includes gently brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, flossing daily, and having regular dental care check-ups from a dentist in Oxon Hill.

To find the right treatment for your tooth sensitivity, ask an expert in family dentistry how to help sensitive teeth. While nothing compares to an expert opinion, try the following three dental care tips to take the bite out of sensitivity.

1. Try a Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth – There are toothpastes to stop sensitivity from striking the nerves of the tooth. After a few applications, you’ll find that they truly prevent any pangs of pain.

2. Consider Fluoride When fluoride is applied to sensitive spots on the teeth, it strengthens the tooth enamel to fight off future sensitivity.

3. Get to the Root of the Trouble – If your sensitivity is due to receded gums, an expert in family dentistry can place a gum graft on the tooth’s root to relieve and reduce the sting at the source.

Although tooth sensitivity can be a real pain, you don’t have to suffer. By practicing good dental care and seeking out treatments, you can stop being so sensitive and start living life without pain.
