Feeling pain or discomfort when eating hot, cold, sour, or exceedingly sweet foods can have a significant impact on your quality of life. While you might find some relief from brushing your teeth with a specially formulated toothpaste, it could pose a future threat. In many cases, tooth sensitivity is directly related to a more serious dental malady. Ignoring or mitigating the symptoms could allow the problem to exacerbate.
Tooth decay on multiple teeth is also a common cause of sensitivity issues. If Dr. Gilbert Fernandez doesn’t get the chance to repair the teeth, it could even lead to serious complications later down the road.
Fortunately, the integrity of your tooth enamel can be restored by having your dentist administer a simple fluoride treatment. This might also be followed up by using prescription fluoride supplements and brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. This will help fight off cavities that threaten your smile.
