Troubled by Teeth Sensitivity? Get Help from an Affordable Dentist

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

Are you experiencing piercing pain in your teeth at different times? Then you may be suffering from teeth sensitivity. The condition is very common and also very controllable. Discover how to ease the ache of sensitive teeth.

Symptoms

Teeth sensitivity is impossible to ignore because the pain is so persistent. You will know you have a problem if you feel short, sharp, stinging sensations when your teeth come into contact with extremely hot or cold temperatures. A lingering ache 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.

Treatments

Fortunately, sensitive teeth can be a temporary trouble if you pursue proper treatment. But you can’t get rid of the pain until you see an expert in family dentistry. Dentists have both in-office treatments and at-home regimens that can help stop teeth sensitivity. These tips and treatments include:

  • Using a desensitizing toothpaste
  • Brushing your teeth with a gentle touch
  • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Consuming fewer acidic foods and drinks
  • Getting a professional fluoride gel treatment
  • Having protective coatings or sealants applied to teeth by an affordable dentist

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