Answers to Your Questions About Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive Teeth

People with sensitive teeth and gums experience sharp or radiating pain after eating hot or cold foods or sweets. Even routine dental care tasks like brushing and flossing can cause misery. Tooth sensitivity can result from a variety of causes; these include worn tooth enamel, exposed roots, cavities, chipped or cracked teeth, infection, bleaching products, and even routine dental procedures. The good news is that the condition is treatable, and you can learn how to help sensitive teeth symptoms at home.

The following tips on how to help sensitive teeth and gums will get you started.

  • Brush twice a day with a soft toothbrush. Avoid brushing your teeth too hard or too often.
  • Try over-the-counter desensitizing toothpastes. These products can often help block the pain associated with tooth sensitivity.
  • Ask your dentist in Citrus Park about using a fluoride mouthwash or having professional fluoride treatments.
  • Limit the consumption of acidic foods such as carbonated beverages, citrus fruits, yogurt, and wine, and brush immediately after consuming them. When you can’t avoid acidic beverages, use a straw to reduce direct contact with tooth surfaces.
  • If you tend to grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about using a mouth guard.

If your sensitive teeth and gums are caused by a dental problem like tooth decay or a cracked tooth, you’ll need professional dental care. If home remedies fail, see your dentist in Citrus Park as soon as possible. Common professional treatments include application of dental sealants to cover exposed roots of sensitive teeth and root canal treatments in cases where extensive damage is present.
