In this post you will learn about what to do for sensitive teeth right from your home. We will also provide you with short information about what can the dentist do to treat sensitive teeth using dental care procedure and method.

How to Help Sensitive Teeth from Home

There are several things you can do to avoid or fix sensitive teeth from your home, although most are not a permanent solution. That said, doing these tips will definitely reduce your discomfort.

The first step would be getting a correct toothpaste for sensitive teeth. There are various popular brands out there that has released toothpaste specifically formulated to help with teeth sensitivity. You can find them almost anywhere, from over the counter drug store to online retailers. You can also go to your local drug store and ask them about toothpaste with high concentration fluoride. The high concentration fluoride will help you strengthen the tooth surface, relieving you from sensitivity.

The next tool you should have is a very soft bristle tooth brush. This is an important instrument that you need in order to avoid excessive brushing. This, combined with specially formulated toothpaste and gentle brushing should be able to remove most of the discomfort caused by sensitive teeth.

For the best result, it would be wise to avoid or to reduce the amount of foods and beverages that may cause tooth sensitivity.

While the at-home solution we provided above is a great way to reduce the pain and discomfort to some considerable extent, it is not a permanent fix for sensitive teeth. They have to be done everyday for the best result. If you’re asking about the cure, then the sensitive teeth treatment from dental clinic would be the best option.

There are several common treatments for teeth sensitivity, including:

Fluoride Varnish or Gel – In this method, the dentist will apply high concentration fluoride varnish or gel to exposed area in order to strengthen the dentin and enamel.

Bonding Agent – This is a tooth colored material that can be applied on the sensitive tooth as a layer that protects the dentin.

Surgical Gum Graft – If the cause of the tooth sensitivity is eroded gum tissue (which may be caused by excessive brushing over a period of time), this method will be able to protect the root and reduce the sensitivity

Root Canal – Should the above methods fail to relief the pain from the tooth sensitivity, this method is used to kill the nerve at the root. This is considered as the last possible option to treat and cure extreme tooth sensitivity.

I think that is all for now. Now you know how to fix sensitive teeth from home and office.
