Health Tip: Caring for Sensitive Teeth
Medical news

 

Sensitive teeth can be very painful, especially while you're eating something hot or cold.

To combat tooth sensitivity, the mouthhealthy.org website suggests:


Using a special toothpaste designed to reduce sensitivity.
Asking your dentist about a fluoride gel to strengthen tooth enamel.


Using dental bonding, an inlay or a crown to correct problems that may have triggered sensitivity.
Getting a gum graft, if gum loss is the cause of the problem.
