Tired of experiencing pain each time you drink your coffee? At Kingwood Perfect Smiles we understand that tooth sensitivity can have a big impact on day-to-day life which is why we are proud to offer a variety of treatment options for our patients who experience teeth sensitivity and are interested in getting it under control.
During your initial visit at Kingwood Perfect Smiles, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam and discuss your sensitivity issues to determine what the cause of your sensitivity is. Based on what we determine, there are a few options for your sensitive teeth treatment in Kingwood, which include:
Fluoride Treatments Kingwood, TX
Think you may need fluoride treatments in Kingwood? In certain cases, tooth sensitivity is caused due to worn enamel and demineralization of teeth; in these instances, fluoride treatment in Kingwood, TX can reduce sensitivity by strengthening your enamel and remineralizing teeth.
Covering Root Surfaces
Patients that experience receding gums due to gum disease or other dental complications also often complain of tooth sensitivity. This is due to the fact that their tooth roots are exposed. We can apply dental sealants or composite bonding depending on the severity which can provide a barrier.
Many patients that suffer from bruxism, TMD or unconscious clenching and grinding also often report tooth sensitivity. For these patients, a custom-fit mouthguard might be the perfect sensitive teeth treatment. Your mouthguard will be worn at night to reduce symptoms and protect your teeth.
Root Canal Treatments
If other forms of sensitive teeth treatment don’t work, a root canal treatment may be recommended depending on the severity of your symptoms and its impact on your day-to-day life. During root canal treatment, the soft pulp and nerves inside of the teeth are removed, stopping sensitivity and discomfort.
