Tooth sensitivity is an issue for around 20 percent of Americans, and it’s a problem we treat daily at Alaska Dental Associates in Anchorage, Alaska. If you have tooth sensitivity, we can help you get back to your regular lifestyle without the annoyance of your teeth bothering you. Here are some bits of prevention guidance and pieces of info on service options.
Both gum disease and sensitivity can be prevented if you follow healthy oral hygiene practices. Use non-abrasive toothpaste and brush your pearly whites twice a day for two minutes per session and floss once daily. Limit your intake of sugary or acidic foods and drinks, and consult our staff before using teeth whitening products, which can cause tooth sensitivity. Following this guidance will keep the enamel of your chompers tough and your dentin less sensitive.
If your tooth sensitivity is too grave to be treated with simple desensitizers, Dr. Kyle M. Triggs might recommend surgical restorative oral practices to support you. These practices can range from fillings and sealants to root canals. Whatever is recommended, you can rest easy recognizing that Dr. Kyle M. Triggs has suggested the process that will be of most benefit to you in reducing the sore effects of tooth sensitivity.
