If you have sensitive teeth, it’s important to treat it. Many people may not realize that sensitive teeth can be treated by a dental professional, and you can go back to enjoying your favorite foods or drinks with proper care. Dr. Ewing with Irish Road Dental in Davison, MI, cares for your oral health, which is why our team has provided you this information on how to properly treat your sensitive smile.

When it comes to improving your sensitive teeth, the first step is to make an appointment with your dental team. That is because your dentist can help you find the specific cause and the best course of action for your unique needs. Some of the treatment options might include dental crowns to protect the tooth, root canals, flossing, gum grafts, or a dental bonding treatment session.

The good news is there are treatment options that can be done in your home. These at-home treatment options include desensitizing toothpaste which can assist over time with your sensitive teeth. Keeping up with brushing and flossing each day can also help make the sensitivity fade because it will keep cavities and bacteria at bay. Using fluoride in your toothpaste or fluoride supplements can also help keep your teeth strong and can reduce sensitivity.
