Many people think having sensitive teeth is a problem they must endure rather than heal. The good news is, sensitive teeth do have many treatment options. To help you learn more about sensitive teeth and how to treat it, our dentist, Dr. Roderick Spencer with Suite Dental in Bozeman, Montana, is here to offer this basic information on proper care and treatments.
Sensitive teeth need to be treated, so the first step is to make an appointment with your dentist. Your dentist can determine the specific cause of the sensitivity and find the best course of action for your unique needs. Some treatment options begin with dental crowns to protect the tooth that is giving you pain. Other options include gum grafts, root canals or dental bonding.
There are also treatments that can be done in the cozy comfort of your own home. These treatments include the use of desensitizing toothpaste, which can help over time with your sensitive teeth. Keeping up with brushing and flossing can also help make the sensitivity better because it will fight away cavities and bacteria. Using fluoride in your toothpaste or any fluoride supplements can also keep your teeth strong and reduce sensitivity.
