Yowtch! Your smile that usually feels perfectly fine can suddenly feel not-so-great. If you realize that dental sensitivity is starting to impact your life on a regular basis and not just as a fleeting sensation, that our Ankeny, IA team reminds you that there are a handful of things you can (and should) do to take care of the matter at hand. First up? Consider our effective suggestions and follow through!
Bring Us Your Smile!
Yep, if you are dealing with dental sensitivity, you should hop in the car and come on over! We would really love to sit down and talk with you about your smile. It’s possible that there’s something going on behind the scenes of your oral health that we are going to need to treat. For instance, did you know that bruxism can lead to sensitivity? Did you realize that infection, tooth decay, and more can all make your teeth feel uncomfortable? It’s also possible that you managed to plain old irritate your teeth. The best way to get to the bottom of what’s going on is for you to take time to see us, so we can take time investigating the details!
Don’t Aggravate Them
Remember that what you don’t want to do with dental sensitivity is make matters worse. Of course, you may feel very interested in figuring out what’s going on and, naturally, you may try to recreate sensitive sensations as you press on certain teeth. You may feel like you should brush them extra well. Or, you may not realize that there are certain factors that can make things worse, such as very cold or hot foods and drinks or very spicy ingredients. The best thing you can do is give your smile a break for a while.
Say “Yes” To Our Suggestions
You may discover that you need a treatment to fix whatever is causing your dental sensitivity. Or, you may discover that we offer you some sort of lifestyle suggestion, such as that you need to brush much more gently or should try an electric toothbrush. Our team strongly suggests you follow through with whatever it is that we recommend! If it’s a restorative or preventive treatment you require, it’s important for your immediate and long-term oral health. The same is true for your personal care! Take the details to heart and you can look forward to teeth that start to feel much better.
