Understanding Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity occurs when the protective enamel on your teeth becomes thin or when gums recede, exposing the underlying dentin. This can cause discomfort or pain when consuming hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and beverages. Understanding the causes of tooth sensitivity is the first step in finding the right solution.

Role of Desensitizing Agents in Dental Care

Desensitizing agents are specially formulated to reduce tooth sensitivity. These agents work by blocking the pathways that lead to the tooth’s nerve, providing relief from pain. They can be used as part of your regular dental care routine or during professional treatments at Klement Family Dental.

Types of Desensitizing Agents

There are various types of desensitizing agents available, including:

  • Potassium Nitrate: This agent works by calming the nerves inside the teeth.
  • Fluoride Gels: These help to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity.

Dental Procedures Involving Desensitizing Agents

At Klement Family Dental, we use desensitizing agents in several dental procedures to help alleviate sensitivity. These include:

  • Professional Cleanings: Desensitizing agents can be applied after cleanings to reduce sensitivity.
  • Fluoride Treatments: High-concentration fluoride gels or varnishes can be used to strengthen enamel.
  • Dental Sealants: Sealants can be combined with desensitizing agents to protect sensitive areas.

Customizing Desensitizing Treatments for Specific Needs

Every patient is unique, and so are their dental needs. We customize desensitizing treatments based on the level and cause of your tooth sensitivity. Whether you have mild discomfort or severe pain, we have the right solution for you.

Addressing Different Levels of Tooth Sensitivity

Our approach to treating tooth sensitivity is tailored to address different levels of sensitivity. For minor sensitivity, we might recommend using a desensitizing toothpaste. For more severe cases, in-office treatments with high-strength desensitizing agents may be necessary.
