Ways to Spot and Stop Tooth Sensitivity

If your teeth are suddenly sensitive, you’re one of the millions of people facing the problem of tooth sensitivity. Discover what’s causing your ongoing ache and how to handle your case.

Signs of Sensitive Teeth

Many people notice their tooth sensitivity when they experience a sharp pang of pain when eating or drinking foods that are hard, hot, cold, sour, or sweet. Others first feel their sensitivity when brushing their teeth or breathing 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 pain and problems.

At-Home Helpers for Tooth Sensitivity

During your dental appointment, your teeth will be checked for sensitivity and signs of dental problems. If your dentist decides that your case is minor, there are many simple strategies and over-the-counter options to relieve and resolve the issue at home, including:

  • Brushing and flossing very gently, yet completely
  • Using a non-abrasive or desensitizing toothpaste
  • Trying mouthwashes designed for sensitive teeth
  • Getting professional dental check-ups and cleanings on a regular basis to control the painful problem

In-Office Dental Care Procedures to Soothe Sensitive Teeth

If you find that over-the-counter treatments are not stopping your sensitivity, there are different in-office procedures that can provide you with real relief. Your dentist may re-examine your teeth to see where you’re most sensitive, and then present the proper treatments to improve your particular case. The most common in-office options include:

  • Applying special treatments to tooth enamel to reduce sensitivity
  • Bonding teeth to protect remaining tooth enamel and prevent future erosion
  • Repairing chipped or broken teeth
  • Performing a root canal for severe cases of tooth sensitivity
