Treatment of Sensitive Teeth
Posted on 11/7/2022 by Evan
Sensitive Teeth result from different causes such as tooth decay, broken or chipped tooth, tooth abscess, or bacterial infection. Here are simple ways to treat sharp teeth. Also, dental erosion and damage to the tooth enamel may cause sensitive teeth.
Use Desensitizing Toothpaste
Desensitizing toothpaste helps to reduce the pain that comes from sensitive teeth when used after several applications. Also, since numerous over-the-counter products exist, consult your dentists to know which works best.
Use of Dental Adherence
Exposed root surfaces cause sensitive teeth, and a dental adherence resin on the sensitive areas of the root surfaces is necessary to treat the sensitive tooth. However, when applying adherence, it is essential to have a local anesthetic to help you spread the resin correctly.
Surgical Gum Graft
Dentists use surgical gum grafts to treat Sensitive teeth caused by the root of the tooth that has lost the gum tissue. A small amount of tissue is taken from any part of the mouth and attached to the affected region to protect the exposed root, thus reducing sensitivity.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatments are necessary for sensitive teeth, especially when the pain is severe. The treatment procedure deals with the dental pulp, the tooth's soft core, by adding filings to the exposed area. Root canal treatment is considered the best option for treating sensitive teeth.
Eating Healthy Foods
Fruit juices with high acidity, beverages, and soft drinks with added sugars cause tooth sensitivity. Also, foods rich in sugars allows interactions with the mouth bacteria, which realizes acids that affect the tooth enamel. Thus, eating fresh fruits and vegetables and whole foods help to treat sensitive teeth.
