Severe Tooth Sensitivity Needs Professional Treatment

Every year, millions of Americans complain of experiencing mild tooth sensitivity symptoms. Many of these individuals will attempt to mitigate the discomfort by brushing their teeth with a specially formulated toothpaste that contains potassium nitrate. While this might provide some temporary relief, it could also be masking a development of a more serious dental health problem.

As time goes on, the sensitivity and discomfort that you experience might start to worsen. This is sometimes a sign of severely demineralized tooth enamel or an undetected cavity. In a case like this, the wisest course of action is to have your mouth examined by dentists like Drs. DeLoach and Nargel.

After performing a thorough examination, our dentists can help you understand which treatment is best capable of addressing any active tooth decay while also restoring the health of your mouth.

Your treatment could include applying dental fillings or applying dental crown restorations to address any active cavities. If an area of tooth decay has affected the internal structures of a tooth, our dentists might need to perform a root canal prior to performing a dental crown restoration.

If tooth enamel erosion is also a contributing factor in your tooth sensitivity problems, Drs. DeLoach and Dargel can administer a simple fluoride treatment. This treatment plan might also include prescription fluoride supplements to help maintain the integrity of your teeth between dental checkups.
