How to Treat Tooth Sensitivity Both at Home and in the Dental Office

Posted .

Are you looking for ways to treat your tooth sensitivity? If so, the first step you need to take is to visit Dr. Lavanya Gill so he can determine the underlying cause of your sensitivity. Once the cause is determined, he will recommend the best and most effective treatment for your specific situation.

The most common tooth-sensitivity treatments include:

Taking advantage of a professional fluoride treatment: Fluoride is the key to reversing sensitivity. Fluoride can strengthen your tooth enamel and block access to the sensitive layers within the tooth. Fortunately, our dental team provides a professional fluoride treatment at our office. It usually comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish, and it can strengthen and nourish your teeth in just a short amount of time.

Cutting out acidic foods and beverages: Acid is usually the substance that causes enamel erosion and tooth sensitivity. So, do your best to cut acidic foods and beverages from your diet. This can help you prevent enamel erosion and other dental issues.

Using desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste: Fortunately, desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste can help you with your sensitivity. If you use them when you brush, the substances in the past will strengthen your enamel and prevent acid and other chemicals from having access to your tooth’s sensitive underlying layers.
