Try a Little Tenderness to Treat Teeth Sensitivity


Why suffer with teeth sensitivity when there are so many ways to get relief?

Once you learn about the different treatments recommended by experts in family dentistry, you can easily ease the pain.

4 Factors for Sensitive Teeth

The reason for teeth sensitivity is a substance known as dentin. It lies in a layer underneath your tooth enamel and gums and is directly connected to the tooth’s nerves. When tooth enamel and gums begin to erode, more of this dentin gets exposed and allows the sensations of heat, cold and touch to reach the nerves of the tooth. This produces extremely painful sensations. The only way to find out the cause of your teeth sensitivity is to get an examination by an affordable dentist. The majority of cases are caused by these four factors:

  1. Dental decay and cavities
  2. Gum disease
  3. Eroded tooth enamel
  4. Receding gums

Remedies for the Pain

There are a number of affordable treatment remedies available for teeth sensitivity. These options range from at-home practices to enhance your oral hygiene routine to in-office procedures performed by family dentistry professionals. Depending on your level of teeth sensitivity, an affordable dentist can guide you toward the treatment that’s best for you. The majority of the cases can be treated in the following ways:

  • Avoid abrasive toothpastes and use one that’s made for teeth sensitivity.
  • Brush gently, with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Consider getting protective teeth bonding.
  • Surgical gum grafts may be required in severe cases.
