Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?
Sensitive Teeth Treatment Melbourne CBD
When you have sensitive teeth, brushing, eating and drinking, can cause sharp, temporary pain in your teeth.
Sensitive teeth are usually caused by worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots.
Treatment for Sensitive Teeth
The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your Melbourne CBD dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments:
Contains compounds that block the transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve and usually require several applications before the sensitivity is reduced.
Strengthens the tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations.
Dental Crown, Inlay or Bonding
Used to correct flaws or decay that result in sensitivity.
Surgical Gum Graft
If gum tissues have been lost from the root, a surgical gum graft will protect the root and reduce sensitivity.
Root Canal Treatment
If sensitivity is severe, persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your Melbourne CBD dentist may recommend a root canal treatment to eliminate the problem.
Proper oral hygiene is the best way to prevent sensitive tooth pain. Ask your Melbourne CBD dentist if you have any questions about your daily oral hygiene routine or concerns about tooth sensitivity.
