A host of factors can contribute to sensitive teeth, including plaque buildup, gingivitis, periodontal disease, acidic foods, teeth grinding and even brushing too hard.
A visit to Julie L. Stante, DDS, Cosmetic & Family Dentistry can pinpoint any underlying causes of your pain and determine treatments or possible procedures appropriate for you.
At-home treatment options you can try include:
- Switching to a specialty desensitizing toothpaste, which contains compounds that help shield exposed nerve endings
- Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated mouthwash
- Avoiding highly acidic foods
- Making an appointment with your dentist right away
Let us help you achieve oral health and wellness – free from the pain and discomfort of sensitive teeth.
