Health Tip: Managing With Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive teeth can make drinking your morning coffee or eating an ice cream cone a painful experience.

The American Dental Association’s mouthhealthy.org website suggests how to manage sensitive teeth:

  • Brush with a desensitizing toothpaste.
  • Get a fluoride gel treatment at our office.
  • Have Dr. Cohen apply a crown, inlay or bonding to correct tooth abnormalities.
  • Consider a surgical gum graft to protect an exposed root.
  • Talk to Dr. Cohen about the potential need for any other additional treatment
