If you have sensitive teeth, then you must be looking for the quickest and easiest treatment, right? Well if that’s the case, don’t visit the store first—visit your dentist, Dr. Richard Golden, first. When you come into Dr. Golden Laser Dental, he will examine your smile, determine the underlying cause, and recommend the best and most successful treatment for you.
There are many treatments he might recommend, including:
–Taking advantage of a professional fluoride treatment: Fluoride is the key to reversing sensitivity. Fluoride can strengthen your tooth enamel and block access to the sensitive layers inside the tooth. Fortunately, our dental team provides a professional fluoride treatment at our office. It usually comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish, and it can strengthen and nourish your teeth in just a short amount of time.
–Using desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste: Fortunately, there are types of toothpaste that can help with sensitivity, like desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste. These pastes can strengthen your teeth and block the sensitivity channels on a regular basis. So, feel free to use them when you brush your teeth twice a day.
–Cutting out acidic foods and beverages: Acid is usually the substance that causes enamel erosion and tooth sensitivity. So, do your best to cut acidic foods and beverages from your diet. This can help you prevent enamel erosion and other dental issues.
