Treating A Sensitive Tooth

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Office
Many things can make teeth sensitive, but the most common are worn-down enamel and exposed tooth roots. Tooth sensitivity can also be caused by a lesion, a split or broken tooth, an old filling, or periodontitis, among other things. Any of these problems can cause a toothache. Sensitivity could signify that the nerve inside the tooth is getting worse. One of the signs that a tooth is infected is that it hurts when it gets hot. The longer this feeling lasts, the worse it is for the nerve. When nerves are about to die, this is a common sign. When used more than once, desensitizing toothpaste can reduce or eliminate the pain caused by sensitive teeth. There are many different brands and types of products sold over the counter. Putting fluoride on the most sensitive parts of your teeth may also help strengthen the enamel and reduce pain. Also, the dentist may suggest using a special tray to use fluoride from a prescription in the comfort of your home. Bushing Your Teeth Can Prevent Sensitive Teeth from Recurring It would be best if you washed your teeth at least twice daily using toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles. Always be sure you floss your teeth at least once per day. Flossing your teeth twice a day can help avoid tooth sensitivity in the future. Instead of brushing your teeth roughly or forcefully, try using light, gentle strokes and avoid using overly abrasive toothpaste.
