Keep Calm and Get Relief from Tooth Sensitivity

Sensitivity is an oral problem caused when certain activities like eating, drinking, or brushing give rise to sharp pain in your teeth. This is mainly due to sensitive teeth with exposed root nerves or worn out or damaged teeth. If you are someone who is quite disturbed by this daily problem, read this carefully to find a remedy. 

Remedies to Treat Sensitive Teeth

In this section, we will discuss some of the causes and preventive measures taken by dentists to treat teeth sensitivity. For example, fluoride, a brilliant remedy to tooth problems, may be prescribed by your doctor to be applied to sensitive areas of your teeth. 

Desensitizing toothpaste is also used by dentists to prevent pain that is felt due to sensitive teeth. Bonding is also another brilliant method to treat exposed root surfaces, which cause pain, by applying bonding resin on the surfaces. 

If you are suffering from severe pain due to sensitive teeth, then your dentist may recommend you a root canal. A root canal is a procedure to treat the tooth’s softcore problems. Dentists all over the world consider this to be the best treatment for tooth sensitivity. 

A surgical gum graft is another process where gum tissue from elsewhere in the mouth is taken to attach to the affected area. This helps to protect the roots or nerves which were exposed due to this. 

How to Prevent from Getting Sensitive Teeth? 

We all know “Prevention is better than cure,” but how much do we follow that every day. First, follow the basic rules of tooth care to prevent your teeth from becoming sensitive:

  • Brush your teeth regularly with fluoride toothpaste twice (or thrice) to remove plaque build-up over teeth.  
  • Brush only with plain water in the afternoon after having your meal to remove food debris stuck between the tooth. 
  • Floss and rinse your mouth thoroughly to remove any extra food particles which were left behind, even after brushing. 
  • Avoid sticky or sugary food and drinks, like sweets, chocolate, gum, soda, juice, etc., which only damage your teeth and enamel. 
  • Avoid smoking as it is bad for both your mouth as well as your lungs. 

Consult a dentist to learn more about sensitive teeth and how to protect them. Then, follow the instructions they give thoroughly to recover quickly from your pains.
