Tips for Easing Tooth Sensitivity

When you develop sensitive teeth, it can make eating or drinking anything miserable. You go to take a sip of a drink or eat a bite of ice cream and the next thing you know, you are wincing in pain. Sometimes this is a momentary issue that goes away as quickly as it appeared. However, in most instances, this is a symptom that you have weak enamel on the outside of one or more of your teeth. Until we can see you next, here are a few tips to help ease your pain.

Tips to Make Dealing with Sensitive Teeth a Little Easier

First, we recommend you make an extra effort to keep your teeth clean. Schedule out your brushing and flossing twice per day so it does not get overlooked. Second, use over-the-counter sensitivity toothpaste to help ease some of the discomfort. This helps take down the shock. Finally, make sure that anything you eat or drink is as close to room temperature as possible. Drinks can be consumed through a straw to help the liquid get behind your teeth without pain, as well.

Simple changes can make living with sensitive teeth easier until we can see you. We will do our best to get you in as quickly as possible, but depending on your schedule and our openings, it may be a short time. During that time, these simple tips should help. Contact us if the pain gets more intense, as that may be a sign of something else. We are here to help.


Most Important Times to Wear a Mouthguard

Mouthguards may be used for sports, but we also prescribe specific dental guards to help those who grind their teeth. The most important times to wear a mouthguard is primarily when you are sleeping. Grinding of the teeth while sleeping can become a normal occurrence, which can cause sensitivity and damage to the enamel. Leaving your mouthguard on during bedtime allows you to protect your teeth and avoid the negative effects of bruxism (grinding). It’s also best to wear your mouthguard during moments that may cause you to have or feel anxiety. If an activity you know causes you to grind, throw that mouthguard in to protect your teeth and gums!

If you or your child suffer from a sore jaw or from grinding teeth regularly, give us a call to learn more about the importance of mouthguards.

Why Chewing Xylitol Gum is a Good Idea

Chewing gum is a great way to keep your teeth clean, but if you chew gum that contains sugar, it can leave your mouth open to cavities. Instead, we recommend that you chew gum with xylitol. This is a sugar substitute that research has shown to reduce and even prevent cavities. If you chew gum regularly, it helps pull debris out of the far reaches of your mouth. The xylitol reduces the chances of developing cavities in the places where debris came up. This means easier visits to our office every six months, and a healthier smile in between.
