What We Can Do to Help You Manage Any Type of Tooth Sensitivity


Posted on 10/15/2019 by Dr. Michael Wockenfus
What We Can Do to Help You Manage Any Type of Tooth SensitivitySensitive teeth can be quite frustrating, making simple tasks, such as eating, drinking, and even brushing. Sensitive teeth are often caused by the wearing down of the tooth enamel or the exposure of the roots.

They can, however, also be caused by cavities, cracks, and chips in the tooth, or gum disease, or even a worn filling. To be sure, sensitive teeth are a serious problem, and we recommend you visit our offices as soon as you notice that you have sensitive teeth. There are quite a few things we can do to help.

Offer You Desensitizing Toothpaste


Desensitizing toothpaste can help to alleviate the pain of sensitive teeth after several applications. We can recommend the best type of desensitizing tooth for you as soon as we have a look at your teeth and determine the cause.

Fluoride


Sometimes, we may apply fluoride to your teeth to strengthen the enamel in order to alleviate the pain.

Bonding and Desensitizing


Sometimes, the sensitivity of your teeth can be caused by exposed root surfaces. In that case, we can apply bonding resin to the affected surfaces in order to protect them.

Surgical Gum Graft


In case you have lost gum tissue that has left your tooth root exposed, we can take gum tissue from elsewhere in your mouth, where it is in plenty, and attach it to the affected surface. This can also help to protect exposed roots.

Root Canal


In case your tooth sensitivity is advanced and causes excruciating pain, and nothing else seems to work, we can consider a root canal treatment, where we treat problems in the soft dental pulp of the tooth itself. This is the most successful procedure for the elimination of tooth sensitivity.

If you're suffering from tooth sensitivity, do not hesitate. Pop into our offices and get checked. We can help make the pain go away and give you the opportunity to go back to doing the activities you enjoy.
