Millions of adults share the struggle of sensitive teeth, but there are finally worthwhile treatments that can soothe and solve the problem. If you’re one of the many sufferers, discover the dental care tips and treatments to relieve this biting issue.

Symptoms of Tooth Sensitivity

People often first notice their tooth sensitivity when they experience a sharp pain while eating or drinking items that are hot, cold, sour, sweet, or hard. Other people first encounter sensitivity when brushing their teeth or breathing cold air produces a stinging sensation in the teeth. Often the condition worsens with time, so you should make an appointment with a dental care specialist as soon as you feel a twinge or tingle to try to head off further pain.

Home Remedies for Sensitive Teeth

When you visit your dentist, your teeth will be checked for sensitivity and signs of other dental issues. Then, your dentist will recommend the proper ways to treat your particular case. If your condition is mild, there are many simple strategies and over-the-counter options you can try at home, including:

  • Brush and floss very gently, but thoroughly
  • Try a mouthwash designed for sensitive teeth
  • Use a non-abrasive or desensitizing toothpaste
  • Get professional dental check-ups and cleanings on a regular basis to help manage sensitive teeth

Soothing Sensitive Teeth with In-Office Dental Care

If your tooth sensitivity is serious or your at-home treatments aren’t working, there are professional procedures to relieve your ongoing issue. Your dentist may re-examine your teeth to see where you’re most sensitive, and then suggest the best treatments to improve your particular case. The most common in-office options include:

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