Eating Ice Cream, Pain-Free – Recognizing and Treating Sensitive Teeth

Tooth Sensitivity

Having sensitive teeth can make eating cold ice cream an oral acrobatic feat. While others eat ice cream cones, you have to be content with a milkshake and a straw. Even hot coffee or your favorite candy or gum can become painful enemies. Fortunately, your dentist in Tampa can offer solutions. With the right dental care from a skilled, affordable dentist, your tooth sensitivity can be reduced, managed, or even eliminated.

Tooth Sensitivity Symptoms Explained

Enamel, the strongest substance in the human body, protects the crowns of healthy teeth, while beneath the gum line, cementum protects the teeth’s roots. Underneath the enamel and cementum lies dentin, which is a less-dense substance that consists of small, hollow tubes. Unfortunately, if the dentin loses its protective covering, hot, cold, acidic, and sweet foods and beverages are able to reach the tooth’s nerves, causing tooth sensitivity or pain when eating and drinking—and even when breathing in air through the mouth.

These common dental problems can cause sensitive teeth:

  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease

Treatment for Sensitive Teeth

Some at-home dental care products, such as desensitizing toothpastes, have ingredients that block nerve sensations and help to reduce pain and sensitivity. If over-the-counter products fail, or you have unusually severe tooth sensitivity, a skilled family dentistry practitioner can effectively treat your sensitive teeth. Visit a dentist in Tampa who can provide the following professional dental care treatments:

  • Fillings, crowns, inlays, or bonding
  • In-office desensitizing treatments
  • Surgical gum grafts
  • Root canals

See your dentist in Tampa today and get relief for your sensitive teeth.
