Sensitivity has always been associated with pain. If your teeth are cracked or your gums are receding where the roots of the teeth are exposed, you can expect to have sensitivity or pain. The things that can trigger the pain vary in form, availability and intensity that they can cause. It can be a beverage that is too cold or too hot, age, hard bristle tooth brush and poor dental hygiene.
At St James Dental Group, we recommend the following to stop or minimize the pain:
Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth. If you are suffering from pain due to teeth sensitivity, try this special toothpaste. The toothpaste helps to block the small nerve endings of the teeth. You may not feel the difference immediately, it may take a couple of weeks, but you should see a difference. You will feel less sensitive the more you use it. The popular brand in the market is Sensodyne. Another good brand of toothpaste for sensitivity is Dr Welch which is rich in fluoride that can cot only cover the sensitive nerves but also, strengthen the teeth. There is also prescription toothpaste like Colgate Provident 5000 which can give you relief much faster if not immediately. Using these brands makes your teeth less sensitive and makes you more comfortable.
Tooth sensitivity can be avoided by dental care. Continual erosion of the enamel and receding gums are the primary reasons for teeth sensitivity. Use dental products to help you maintain tooth strength. Enjoy and have a greater, stronger and shinny white teeth longer.
