At-Home Relief For Sensitive Teeth

In order to ease the struggle with sensitive teeth, you can try the following at home:

  • Desensitizing toothpaste. There are several brands of toothpaste for sensitive teeth available. Your dentist may recommend one or you may have to try different brands until you find the product that works for you. Be sure to use fluoridated toothpaste for sensitive teeth, not tartar-control toothpaste. Try spreading a thin layer of the desensitizing toothpaste on the exposed tooth roots before bed.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Avoid highly acidic foods.
  • Use a fluoridated mouthwash daily.
  • Avoid teeth grinding. Consider getting a mouth guard.

Professional Dental Services For Sensitive Teeth

Gresham Family Dentistry’s family dentistry services include some methods that can help with sensitive teeth. Seek consultation with Gresham Family Dentistry to see if any of the following treatments are right for you. We will aid you in seeking the treatment that is right for you.

  • Bonding, crowns or inlays. These may fix a tooth flaw or decay that is causing sensitivity.
  • Fluoride gel or varnish.
  • Surgical gum graft. This will protect the root and reduce sensitivity if the gum tissue has eroded from the root.
  • Root canal. This is a last resort treatment for severe tooth sensitivity that has not been helped by other methods.
