Treatment For Sensitive Teeth

Dunwoody cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Millions of Americans experience tooth sensitivity to one degree or another, causing them to avoid certain foods and beverages. If this sounds like you, please talk to us about it at Flax Dental in Atlanta.

People with sensitive teeth are most likely to have problems with temperature. Hot or cold things, like coffee and ice cream, can be really difficult.

There is more than one cause of sensitive teeth, so it’s important to have a proper diagnosis. A common cause is worn tooth enamel. This can expose the dentin just beneath it. Enamel can wear down from using a hard-bristle toothbrush and brushing too aggressively. That’s why we always – repeat, always – recommend using a soft-bristle brush and a light touch.

Other causes:

  • Tooth erosion from highly acidic foods and beverages
  • Tooth decay
  • Receding gums
  • Bruxism (tooth grinding)

The treatment for sensitive teeth may involve filling a cavity or replacing a worn filling. If it’s caused by gum loss, you may need a graft.

Many cases respond very well to sensitive-teeth toothpaste. Take a look in the store: just about every major brand includes a line for sensitive teeth, and they are known to work. Many people see results within a week or two.
