What Can I Do For Sensitive Teeth?

In most cases, tooth sensitivity doesn’t really disappear. It is more likely to come and go. It’s important to consult with your dentist about your tooth sensitivity issues so that they will be able to determine the source.

Things that your dentist may discuss with you to help with your tooth sensitivity:

  • Root canal
  • Gum graft
  • Inlays
  • Crowns
  • Bonding

Things that you can try at home:

  • Spread a thin layer of desensitizing toothpaste on your exposed roots at bedtime, as well as brush your teeth with a toothpaste for sensitive teeth
  • Use mouthwash that contains fluoride
  • Avoid really hot, cold, or acidic food and drinks
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Use a mouthguard to prevent tooth grinding
