Are you troubled by tooth sensitivity? If so, you’re actually one of millions who endure this painful problem. Learn what causes your pain and ways to soothe your sensitivity.

Indications of Sensitive Teeth

For some people, the first sign of tooth sensitivity is a stinging sensation when consuming foods and drinks that are hard, cold, hot, sweet, or acidic. Others first feel sensitivity when brushing their teeth or when breathing in cold air produces a stinging sensation in teeth. The condition tends to worsen with time, so you should schedule an appointment with a dental care specialist as soon as you feel a twinge or tingle to prevent further tooth sensitivity.

At-Home Strategies for Tooth Sensitivity

You will need to have a dentist thoroughly examine your teeth to spot signs of sensitivity or other dental damage. If your dentist decides that your case is not severe, there are several simple strategies and over-the-counter options you can try at home to help relieve the problem, including:

  • Be sure to brush and floss gently on a regular basis.
  • Use a non-abrasive or desensitizing toothpaste.
  • Try a mouthwash designed for sensitive teeth.
  • Get professional dental check-ups and cleanings on a regular basis to control the painful problem.

Professional Dental Care to Alleviate Tooth Sensitivity

If you find that over-the-counter treatments are not doing enough to stop your sensitivity, there are different in-office procedures that may provide you with real relief. Once your dentist sees exactly where you’re sensitive, you can discuss the right professional treatments for you. The most common in-office options include:

  • Application of special treatments to tooth enamel to reduce sensitivity
  • Bonding of the teeth to protect tooth enamel and prevent further erosion
  • Fixing chipped or broken teeth
  • Performing a root canal for severe tooth sensitivity
