For Sensitive Teeth
Treatment by applying bonding resin.
With local anesthesia, an exposed root surface can be treated by applying bonding resin to the sensitive root surfaces.
Treatment via surgical gum graft.
A small amount of your own gum tissue is attached to the affected site that can protect an exposed root and reduce sensitivity. This is done If tooth root has lost gum tissue.
Root canal treatment can work if other treatments fail.
This procedure removes the dental pulp with all its nerve endings. It’s considered the most successful technique for eliminating tooth sensitivity.
Proper Brushing and Flossing
Proper brushing and flossing can prevent sensitive teeth from coming back. Brush teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush or electric toothbrush for 2 minutes, twice a day, using fluoride. Use gentle strokes, avoid vigorous brushing and harsh toothpaste.Source
