Tooth Sensitivity

What Is Tooth Sensitivity?

It is defined as a sensitivity sensation to hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and beverages.

How Is It Treated?

Before starting treatment, the cause of tooth sensitivity must be determined because different treatment approaches exist for different causes. One of the common treatment methods for tooth sensitivity includes the use of special toothpaste or gels designed to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity.

If your dentist identifies thinning or decay of tooth enamel as the cause of tooth sensitivity, they may recommend restorative procedures such as fillings or crowns. Another option for tooth sensitivity is to use special coatings or gum grafts to cover exposed root surfaces due to gum recession.

The treatment plan may vary depending on the severity and cause of tooth sensitivity, so it's important to collaborate with your dentist to determine the most appropriate treatment option.
