Sensitive teeth are a common problem among children and adults alike. If enjoying your favorite food or drink seems difficult, then perhaps you are experiencing sensitive teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Leo Eliezer with Jones Bridge Dental Care in Alpharetta, Georgia, cares for your oral health and is proud to help you understand your sensitive teeth problem.
One of the leading causes of sensitive teeth comes from brushing your teeth too hard which wears down your enamel. Your tooth enamel is durable and protects the nerves in your teeth. Cleaning too hard can expose nerves in your tooth that can cause pain. As a result, try loosening the hold of your toothbrush and use one with really soft bristles.
Another way to overcome sensitive teeth is to switch to a desensitizing toothpaste. This can help treat your nerves over several uses. For more immediate relief, there are procedures you can do such as dental crowns or dental bonding treatments to help lower the sensitivity of your teeth. Keeping a healthy diet, brushing and flossing regularly, and your dental checkups are always the best way to maintain your oral health, with any problem you have.
