Do you have extremely sensitive teeth, especially when you consume hot, cold, sweet, and acidic foods and drinks? If so, the first thing you need to do is call Arizona Dental at 602-788-4040 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Joe Gerard. Once he has determined the underlying cause of your sensitivity, you can treat it.

There are many different treatments available that can help you and your smile. Those treatments are:

Using desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste: Fortunately, there are types of toothpaste that can help with sensitivity, like desensitizing and fluoride toothpaste. These pastes can strengthen your teeth and block the sensitivity channels on a regular basis. So, feel free to use them when you brush your teeth twice a day.

Cutting out acidic foods and beverages: Because enamel erosion is oftentimes the cause of tooth sensitivity, acid is usually the main cause of your problem. Acid tends to attack and wear down your tooth enamel. This is why it’s best to cut out as many acidic foods and drinks out of your diet as possible.

Taking advantage of a professional fluoride treatment: Fluoride is the key to reversing sensitivity. Fluoride can strengthen your tooth enamel and block access to the sensitive layers inside the tooth. Fortunately, our dental team provides a professional fluoride treatment at our office. It usually comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish, and it can strengthen and nourish your teeth in just a short amount of time.
