At Raptou Family Dental in Columbus, OH, we understand how frustrating it can be to deal with tooth sensitivity. The good news is that there are things that you can do about sensitive teeth so that you will once again be able to enjoy the things that you love.


Teeth Brushing Tips


In many cases, teeth are sensitive because some tooth enamel has worn away. Even though you cannot replace enamel, you can make a couple of simple changes that will protect the enamel that you do still have. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush, and brush gently. You do not want to wear away more of the enamel or further damage what is still there.

Also, do not use an abrasive toothpaste. There are some toothpastes made for sensitive teeth, and you might want to try one. Follow package directions, because you do not want to overuse the toothpaste. Our Columbus dental office recommends specific brands that have proven effective for our patients.


Dietary Recommendations


Foods that are high in acid are not good for someone who has sensitive teeth. You do not have to totally avoid them; just limit how often you enjoy them. There are some food items that you should consider adding to your diet, if you do not already eat them. They include cheese, milk, and leafy green vegetables. For personalized dietary recommendations, feel free to consult with our dental team.


Professional Help for Sensitive Teeth


If your tooth sensitivity is bringing you a lot of discomfort, you need to make an appointment and come in to see us. We will rule out any other causes and help you to get on the right course of action. Sensitive teeth can be caused by aging, by gum disease, by smoking, and by other things as well.
