Successfully Addressing Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth Sensitivity

That awful feeling of tooth sensitivity and pain that comes with a sip of hot coffee or a nibble on an ice cream cone is something that all too many of us know well. This distinct type of pain is often due to tooth sensitivity caused by enamel erosion and nerve exposure. While this sort of discomfort is something countless individuals have experienced, it is problematic nonetheless and demands attention. By consulting with a dentist in Florida and pursuing appropriate treatment options, you have the ability to greatly reduce the pain of tooth sensitivity.

Using the proper toothpaste is an easy way to reduce tooth sensitivity. Some abrasive-containing toothpastes are too harsh for people with sensitive teeth. Certain whitening toothpastes contain sodium pyrophosphate, which can exacerbate tooth sensitivity. However, there are desensitizing toothpastes formulated for sensitive teeth, which can help, so it should be a priority to choose one designed specifically for tooth sensitivity. Also, fluoride supplementation can help to reduce the pain of sensitive teeth.

If you experience pain and tooth sensitivity for several days when eating hot and cold foods and beverages, make an appointment with a skilled, affordable dentist in Florida. A family dentistry practitioner will be able to determine whether you have routine tooth sensitivity or if a more serious problem is causing your sensitive teeth. If an abscess or cavity is causing the pain, specialized dental care treatment will be required.

If your pain is caused by simple tooth sensitivity, your dentist in Florida may apply a dental sealant to your teeth to serve as a barrier to irritants and to strengthen the tooth enamel. Your dentist may recommend an over-the-counter toothpaste containing potassium nitrate or strontium chloride, or prescribe a prescription-strength fluoride supplement. For any treatment to be effective, it is vital that you to follow the dental care instructions provided by your family dentistry professional.
