Take the Bite out of Tooth Sensitivity

Do you feel a flash of pain or a stinging sensation when your teeth are exposed to extreme conditions? You may be suffering from sensitive teeth. But you’re not alone because nearly 45 million Americans struggle with this condition. Visit an affordable dentist and discover the trusted treatments that can result in real relief.

6 Causes of Tooth Sensitivity

Teeth become sensitive when the outer surface of the tooth called the enamel erodes and exposes the inner layer of the tooth called dentin. The dentin is closer to the nerves, which makes teeth feel sensitive when touched. Tooth sensitivity can develop for many reasons, such as:

  1. Brushing teeth too harshly can lead to loss of tooth enamel and exposure of dentin
  2. Mild to serious gum recession
  3. Grinding your teeth can also destroy the enamel and cause sensitivity
  4. Acidic beverages can erode tooth enamel and lead to dentin exposure
  5. Too many dental treatments, such as frequent tooth whitening and numerous tooth restoration procedures can erode tooth enamel and make teeth sensitive over time
  6. Aging causes the outer surface of a tooth to naturally wear away with time

Top Treatments for Tooth Sensitivity

The best way to determine the root of your sensitive teeth is to see an affordable dentist. To find the site and source of your sensitivity, the dentist will dispense a spray of air over every tooth. To provide immediate relief, the dentist may apply an in-office desensitizer that places a protective coating over the teeth to reduce overall sensitivity. Severe cases of tooth sensitivity may require dental restorative treatment, but most people find relief with a variety of at-home treatments.

Soothing Solutions for Sensitive Teeth

Luckily, there are many ways to manage and minimize tooth sensitivity today. An affordable dentist can advise you on the most effective and cost-effective treatments for you. Your options include:

  • For severe cases of tooth sensitivity, in-office desensitizers can provide even greater relief, lasting for many months or sometimes even years.
  • Over-the-counter desensitizers can supplement and extend these in-office treatments.
  • At-home fluoride toothpastes and rinses can either make the nerves less sensitive or create a protective covering over the surface of sensitive teeth.
  • Brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush will ease tooth sensitivity.
