Discomfort when consuming acidic, sweet, hot, or cold substances can certainly limit a lot of your food choices. While you might be tempted to brush your teeth with a specially formulated tooth sensitivity toothpaste, you might find relief at the expense of letting a latent dental health issue worsen.
In most cases of tooth sensitivity, the wisest course of action is to have the underlying source and any contributing factors diagnosed and identified by a professionally trained dentist like Dr. David Trebisovsky.
Many time the overall mineral density of the tooth enamel contributes to tooth sensitivity symptoms. Should this prove to be the case, he might advocate a treatment strategy designed to increase the fluoride exposure of your teeth.
This treatment plan will likely start with Dr. David Trebisovsky administering a fluoride treatment to quickly bolster the mineral density of your teeth to help reduce sensation in your teeth.
If he feels it’s warranted a prescription for daily-use fluoride supplements might be included. This might come in the form of a concentrated fluoride toothpaste or mouth rinse. Dr. David Trebisovsky will provide you with the necessary application instructions to maximize the fluoride’s effect.
