Brush Up on Brushing Your Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive Teeth

Do you feel a sharp, stinging sensation when tasting things that are hot, cold, sour, or sweet? Then you’re probably facing sensitive teeth and gums. While sensitive teeth are common today, it’s easy to treat and stop sensitivity at the source.

Tooth sensitivity is usually caused when tooth enamel wears away and the tooth’s root becomes exposed, but it also results from tooth decay and cracked teeth. The condition can also come from gum disease, receded gums, and aggressive brushing because these all expose the delicate nerves within the roots of the tooth. Then when the roots come into contact with certain extreme sensations, they strike the super-sensitive nerves and cause sharp pangs of pain.

Luckily, sensitive teeth and gums are not only treatable, but also preventable. The best way to prevent this problem is by practicing good dental care. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a very gentle touch, as well as flossing on a daily basis and having regular dental care check-ups.

To find out how to help sensitive teeth, ask an expert in family dentistry for suggestions. While nothing compares to an expert opinion, try the following dental care tips to take the bite out of sensitivity.

  1. Discover Desensitizing Toothpaste – These special toothpastes stop sensitivity from striking the nerves of the tooth. After a few applications, you’ll find that they truly prevent any pangs of pain.
  2. Ask About Fluoride – When fluoride is applied to sensitive spots on the teeth, it strengthens the tooth’s enamel to fight off future sensitivity.
  3. Find the Remedy at the Roots – If your sensitivity is due to receded gums, an expert in family dentistry can place a gum graft on the tooth’s root to relieve and reduce the sting at the source.

Tooth sensitivity can be a real pain, but you don’t have to suffer in silence. By practicing good dental care and seeking out trusted treatments, you can stop being so sensitive and start living life without pain.
