Ways To Handle Smile Sensitivity

If you deal with smile sensitivity and you do nothing, chances are quite good that your sensitivity will remain the same or that it will become even more intense. Since you need to use your smile every day for communication and also to survive (you have to eat!), addressing any type of discomfort or pain is something patients should always put at the top of their priority list! So, when you’re dealing with the strange and unpleasant sensations that arrive with sensitivity, our Pella, IA team suggests you speak with us soon, so we may guide you toward best options for handling it!

Come In, Come In!

Dealing with smile sensitivity can become one of those things that is very frustrating but that you also feel you should just ignore. We disagree! Don’t forget that any uncomfortable symptom usually points to a problem that is fixable. So, why suffer? Why ignore a problem that may be negatively impacting your oral health? Come in to see our team when you can, so we may get to the bottom of this mystery during a dental checkup.

Address Bite Problems

Guess what? If you’re dealing with smile sensitivity it may be linked with a problem with your bite. In essence, your bite should be well-balanced, meaning top teeth fit together nicely with bottom teeth. However, this may not be the case if you’re suffering from misalignment and could use orthodontic care like Invisalign treatment. Or, this may also become impacted if you require a dental crown or the adjustment/replacement of dental work. Again, remember that when you visit us, we can provide you with essential treatments to improve your smile’s comfort level.

Use One Of Our Prescription Toothpastes

We offer prescription toothpaste that can offer you some exceptional protection against the discomfort that comes with smile sensitivity! So, rather than trudge on with your usual toothpaste or attempt to use an over-the-counter sensitivity paste you’re unsure about, we encourage you to come in to learn more about the powerful paste we offer.

Make Lifestyle Changes

Of course, we will also guide you toward making your best possible daily choices to ensure you can keep your smile healthy as you minimize sensitivity. Remember to brush and floss daily, to brush as gently as you can to avoid aggravating teeth and gums, and to limit acidic foods and beverages that can damage enamel (which yields sensitivity).
