Having sensitive teeth can be uncomfortable. It can also be painful when doing normal activities like eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. In many cases, teeth sensitivity is caused by worn down enamel or an exposed root. In other cases, it’s due to a chipped or cracked tooth, or a cavity. There are some methods Dr. Robin Kutner and Dr. Laurel Linetsky-Fleisher can suggest to help with tooth desensitization.
Desensitizing teeth products – Dr. Robin Kutner and Dr. Laurel Linetsky-Fleisher may have certain toothpaste to suggest for you to help desensitize your teeth. These can block pains associated with teeth that have become sensitive. He may also apply fluoride to your teeth to help the enamel gain some strength. He may also give you a prescription for fluoride you can use at home.
Bonding – If a root becomes exposed it can become sensitive. A bonding resin can be applied to the root surface to help reduce the sensitivity.
Gum Grafts – A gum graft is a surgical procedure that can be used to pull some gum tissue from another area in the mouth. This tissue is placed in the affected area and grafted in. This helps to protect the exposed root which can reduce sensitivity.
Root Canals – A root canal is the last resort, but can help reduce sensitivity.
