Health Tip: Managing With Sensitive Teeth
(HealthDay News) -- Sensitive teeth can make drinking your morning coffee or eating an ice cream cone a painful experience.
The American Dental Association's mouthhealthy.org website suggests how to manage sensitive teeth:
Brush with a desensitizing toothpaste.
Get a fluoride gel treatment at your dentist's office.
Have the dentist apply a crown, inlay or bonding to correct tooth abnormalities.
Consider a surgical gum graft to protect an exposed root.
Talk to your dentist about the potential need for a root canal.
