Are you looking for ways to improve your sensitive teeth? If so, you have come to the right place! Our dentist, Dr. Soren Michaelsen with Dental Arts of Catoosa in Catoosa, Oklahoma, cares for your oral health, which is why we are happy to offer advice for treating your sensitive teeth.
Your tooth enamel is an important substance in your body that needs protection. When you brush your teeth, try not to brush very hard because you could be causing more harm than good to your sensitive teeth. For some people, gum disease could be a reason for your sensitive teeth. If your gums start to pull away from your teeth, the root of your tooth could be unprotected causing you intense pain. As a result, remember to keep up with your oral hygiene and check in with your dentist for help.
Cavities are also an essential factor to watch out for if you have sensitive teeth. If you have a cavity, it could be damaging the enamel and reaching nerves or other areas of your tooth, which is why a six-month checkup is vital to overcoming your sensitive smile. Other options to consider is mouthwash with fluoride in it to help your teeth, dental sealants or dental crowns to cover your tooth or desensitizing toothpaste as an option to help your sensitive teeth.
