Essential Tooth Sensitivity Answers

Tooth Sensitivity

Countless individuals know the pain and discomfort that can sometimes come from drinking and eating hot and cold items, having a rush of cold air hit the teeth, or even from taking a bite of something sweet. In many instances, though not all, this is the result of tooth enamel having been worn down to the point where the dentin has been exposed, leaving the nerves vulnerable to irritation. Tooth sensitivity is extremely common, but painful just the same. If you are suffering with sensitive teeth, there are several steps you can add to your dental care routine to greatly reduce the discomfort.

Paying attention to the type of toothpaste you use is an easy way to combat sensitivity. There are some formulations that are simply too harsh for those with sensitive teeth, because they contain significant amounts of abrasives. Whitening toothpastes also often contain sodium pyrophosphate, known to exacerbate tooth sensitivity. On the other hand, desensitizing toothpastes made specifically for sensitive teeth can be extremely helpful. Fluoride supplementation can also make a positive difference. Ultimately, selecting a toothpaste targeted toward tooth sensitivity should be a top priority.

When teeth feel sensitive for several days in a row and give pain signals when exposed to hot and cold temperatures, it is probably time to see a qualified, affordable dentist in Orlando. Only a dental care professional will be able to determine whether the pain is due to routine tooth sensitivity or something more serious that requires further treatment. It may be that a cavity or abscess is the true cause of the pain, and in such instances, specialized procedures will be necessary.

However, if the pain is attributable to tooth sensitivity, there are several things that can be done. Your dentist in Orlando may decide to apply a dental sealant to the teeth that is meant to stand as a barrier to irritants and a way to strengthen enamel. Your dentist may also determine that you need a prescription-strength fluoride gel supplement or an over-the-counter toothpaste made with strontium chloride or potassium nitrate. The key is to closely follow the dental care instructions provided by your family dentistry practitioner so that the treatments stand the best chance of being truly effective.
