Best Treatments for Teeth Sensitivity

Have you ever watched someone bite into a popsicle, and it sent a shiver down your spine?
That is most likely because your teeth are sensitive, and you could never imagine biting into
something extremely cold or hot! For run-of-the-mill sensitivity, there are a few treatments that can help.


Desensitizing Toothpaste
Teeth are commonly sensitive because the enamel has been worn down, making the nerves in the teeth more exposed. There are certain kinds of toothpaste that contain compounds that help block the transmissionof sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve. The toothpaste usually requires severalapplications before the sensitivity is reduced. Remember to be patient because it may take time before you start to see results. Don't go biting ice cream just yet!
Fluoride Gel
Fluoride is a compound that joins forces with calcium and phosphate to create a powerful
defense system for your teeth! An in-office technique that strengthens tooth enamel and
reduces the transmission of sensations. In your next appointment with us, talk to your dentist
about your options concerning fluoride!
