5 Beneficial New Dental Technologies

1 in 8 people experience sensitive teeth at some point, but often don’t talk to their dentist about their experience. There are many ways to try and alleviate or cope with tooth sensitivity.

Be Gentle

Some causes of sensitive teeth can be irritation from hard bristled toothbrushes, or clenching and grinding teeth. You can ask your dentist if you would benefit from a night guard to prevent the sensitivity that comes with grinding or clenching, or what toothbrush and toothpaste they recommend to reduce overall tooth sensitivity.

Be Preventative

Keeping your teeth strong and healthy by keeping them clean and supporting enamel health are one way that can help with sensitive teeth. Using fluoride can help support enamel health, and there are many ways you can do that. If your water is fluoridated, this is one way to support enamel health, but you can also use mouthwash with fluoride in it, or ask your dentist for other ways to keep your enamel strong and healthy.

Be Aware

Some things that can increase or exacerbate tooth sensitivity are easily avoided. Extreme temperatures can trigger sensitivity, but so can foods that are high in acid, or sugar. Sensitive teeth can also be a sign of a problem, so it is important to talk to a dentist about your tooth sensitivity. If you’re experiencing sensitive teeth, call our Leawood dentist to make an appointment with a dentist who may be able to help you manage your tooth sensitivity. Talking to a Dentist about your symptoms may help you find an effective course of treatment for your tooth sensitivity.
