Sensitive Teeth in Tampa, Brandon, Lakeland, Riverview, Valrico & Beyond
If you are suffering from sensitive teeth, your oral hygiene habits could be to blame, or it may be the result of other genetic conditions. Once you discover the sensitivity, however, it is very important to seek out a thorough examination from a reputable dentist near you to eliminate any potentially negative underlying causes.
At Dental Associates, our skilled and experienced team of dentists have been addressing common tooth and oral health conditions for hundreds of patients throughout the Central Florida area for years. We can determine if your sensitivity is the result of cavities, more serious dental decay or simple genetics. In any case, there are several things you can do to help avoid the negative symptoms of sensitive teeth.
Recommendations that we often provide to our patients who are suffering from tooth sensitivity include:
- Avoid extremely hot or cold temperature food and drink. Extreme temperatures will only exacerbate your symptoms. Let your food or drink come to a more moderate temperature before consuming it.
- Brush with a toothpaste made especially for sensitive teeth. These toothpastes are specially formulated to protect the tooth enamel and prevent or delay the worsening of the symptoms of tooth sensitivity.
- Use a soft bristle toothbrush. Oftentimes a hard bristle brush will be too abrasive for your teeth and gums. A softer bristle brush is more suited for those with tooth sensitivity.
- Practice good hygiene. A good oral hygiene routine is crucial for maintaining and improving your oral health. Without excellent oral hygiene, your sensitivity will increase, and the symptoms will become more severe over time.
