Do you suffer from painful, sensitive teeth? You’re not alone. Many people experience tooth sensitivity caused by many factors, from brushing too hard to consuming highly acidic food and drinks.
At Fraser Dental, we understand how uncomfortable this can be, and we’re here to help.
Causes of Sensitive Teeth
- Brushing your teeth too hard and/or using a hard-bristled toothbrush
- Highly acidic food and beverages
- Tooth decay, worn fillings, cavities, and broken teeth
- Gum disease and receding gums
- Bruxism (habitual
- grinding or clenching your teeth)
- Tooth whitening products containing hydrogen peroxide or abrasive bleaching agents
Treatment for Sensitive Teeth
The first step in treating your sensitive teeth is to see your dentist. They will assess the health of your teeth and gums and diagnose any underlying conditions that may be contributing to your symptoms.
Our experts at Fraser Dental will then recommend the best products for you to use to prevent exacerbating your sensitivity, such as a soft-bristled toothbrush, an electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor, or a tooth mousse that helps restore and re-mineralize tooth enamel.
If your teeth are showing signs of substantial wear from bruxism, your dentist can develop a custom-made nightguard for you to wear at night to protect your teeth. Nightguards, also known as splints, are thin and comfortable; most people get used to sleeping in them quickly.
Additionally, your dentist may suggest cutting back on foods and beverages that may contribute to your sensitivity, especially those that are sugary and acidic.
