Don’t Be So Sensitive About Teeth Sensitivity

dca-blog_teeth-sensitivity

If you can’t take the ache of sensitive teeth, you’re not alone. Teeth sensitivity affects at least 40 million adults in the United States at some point in their lives. But you don’t have to put up with the pain as long as you follow this soothing advice.

Symptoms of Teeth Sensitivity

Because its symptoms are so evident, it’s hard to ignore teeth sensitivity. You have a problem if you feel short, sharp, stinging pains when your teeth come into contact with extremely hot or cold temperatures. A lingering aching sensation often follows this feeling. If teeth sensitivity persists for more than a few days, you need to schedule an evaluation with an affordable dentist in Reading. Only an expert in family dentistry can confirm whether your discomfort is due to teeth sensitivity or another problem like a cavity or abscess.

Manage Your Risk for Sensitive Teeth

Because teeth sensitivity is treatable, it can be reversed. But you can’t stop the pain until you see an expert in family dentistry. Dentists have a wide range of in-office treatments and at-home regimens that can help soothe and stop teeth sensitivity. These include:

  • Using soft-bristled toothbrushes
  • Brushing your teeth very gently
  • Selecting special toothpastes for sensitive teeth
  • Curbing your consumption of acidic foods and beverages
  • Getting a prescription for a fluoride gel
  • Having sealants or other protective coatings applied to teeth by an affordable dentist

Use these tips from family dentistry experts to stop teeth sensitivity from being a pain.
