Gum graft. If your tooth root has lost gum tissue, a small amount of gum tissue can be taken from elsewhere in your mouth and attached to the affected site. This can protect exposed roots and reduce teeth sensitivity.
Root canal treatment. If your sensitive teeth cause serious pain and other treatments aren’t effective, your dentist might recommend a root canal.
It is a procedure used to treat problems in the tooth’s soft core and considered one of the most successful techniques to eliminate severe tooth sensitivity.
Prevent sensitive teeth from coming back. Brush your teeth two times a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste gently. Floss daily.
Avoid using corrosive toothpaste. If you grind your teeth, ask your dentist about a mouthguard. Tooth grinding can fracture teeth and cause sensitivity.
Acidic foods and beverages, such as carbonated drinks, citrus fruits, and wine can remove small amounts of tooth enamel over time.
Use a straw to limit contact with your teeth when you drink acidic liquids. Drink lots of water to balance the acid levels in your mouth after eating or drinking an acidic substance.
