Treating Your Sensitive Teeth

Posted .

Have you been trying to live with your sensitive teeth? If so, did you know in many cases sensitive teeth can be treated? Well, it’s true! If you can no longer enjoy your favorite hot or cold beverages, then perhaps it’s time to make an appointment with Dr. Wright with Wright Family Dentistry in Jonesboro, AK, to have an oral health checkup.

When it comes to taking care of your sensitive teeth, the first place to begin is to make an appointment with your dentist. Your dentist can help discover the reason and the best course of action for your needs. Some treatment possibilities include dental crowns to protect the sensitive tooth, gum grafts, root canals, or a dental bonding procedure.

Other treatment opportunities can include things to be done in the home. These treatments include using desensitizing toothpaste, which can help over time with your sensitive teeth. Keeping up with brushing and flossing habits can also work to improve your sensitive teeth because it will help fight off cavities and bacteria that could be harming your teeth. Using fluoride in your toothpaste or as supplements can also help keep your teeth strong and can reduce sensitivity.
