Sensitivity Toothpaste: 3 Things To Consider!

There’s nothing quite like the sensation of sensitive teeth. One second, you’re enjoying yourself and the next second, it feels like every nerve in your tooth is highly aggravated! You may close your eyes, cup your face, take a deep breath, and wait for it to stop. If it’s something that affects you consistently, then you know this is no way to live! Rather than ignore it, we strongly suggest you take action to resolve the problem, which may very well include using sensitivity toothpaste. Before you do, however, consider some important details.

#1: Yes, It’s Actually A Potential Solution

It’s true that toothpaste formulated to relieve sensitivity really is a potential solution for your smile if sensitive teeth have got you down. We know that you may be so used to seeing exciting features offered by product after product (though you know they’re just fancy advertising) that you may think this isn’t really going to help. It can most certainly benefit you. Check out your options. If you’re not sure which to pick, try one that’s approved by the ADA (American Dental Association).

#2: It Doesn’t Work Right Away

Don’t expect to brush sensitivity toothpaste over your teeth and experience immediate relief. Instead, expect it to work only if you do the following: Read the directions on the package. Use it as your only toothpaste. Continue using it, giving the product at least a couple weeks for full effect.

#3: You Should Still Visit Us For A Checkup

Don’t assume that addressing your sensitive teeth with paste and ending up with some relief means you have fixed the issue. It’s possible that you do simply deal with some level of sensitivity. It’s also possible that you need our help to fix an issue that’s causing that discomfort. See us!
