Treatment For Sensitive Teeth
Do You Have Tooth Pain Due to Sensitive Teeth?
Many people in Leduc and Leduc County find they have tooth sensitivity when eating or drinking specific foods and beverages such as ice cream and coffee, or while sustaining temperature changes in the mouth. But there are ways to reduce tooth discomfort that is a result of sensitive teeth.
What Causes Sensitive Teeth?
Sensitive teeth can stem from a number of various sources. The most common of these sources is gum recession. It may be that over-aggressive tooth brushing has caused your gums to recede, further wearing your enamel and exposing your tooth's dentin.
Treating Sensitive Teeth
To remedy sensitive teeth, we make sure our patients begin using an extra soft toothbrush and show them proper brushing techniques. We also make sure you are using a non-abrasive, or non-whitening toothpaste.
Another reason why you may be experiencing gum recession is because you may be (consciously or subconsciously) clenching and grinding your teeth, thus exerting much wear-and-tear on your teeth and gums. Our dentist will prescribe a night guard to stop the grinding and clenching, and adjust your bite if needed, to ensure your bite force distribution is even and harmonious.
Gum disease can develop into health problems much more serious than tooth sensitivity, and should be immediately treated.
