How To Decrease Tooth Sensitivity

Posted on July 18th, 2019 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Tooth sensitivity is a problem that affects many individuals nationwide. It can cause sharp and sudden, yet temporary pain. Thankfully, if you suffer from tooth sensitivity, there are methods to help improve your condition and minimize your pain, resulting in a happier and healthier lifestyle. 

Change Your Toothpaste

If tooth sensitivity is something you struggle with on a daily basis, a desensitizing toothpaste is an easy swap that could help. There are several toothpastes on the market that treat sensitivity, and your Chicago dentist can recommend several brands for you to try.

Invest in Specialized Mouthwash

There are several fluoridated mouthwashes that can also help with your tooth sensitivity. Using mouthwashes that are tailored to help alleviate sensitivity, you can help prevent pain over time. The more frequently you are treating your sensitivity outside of our dental office, the faster you will see results. 

Talk to Your Chicago Dentist

If your sensitivity is causing daily pain, and at-home treatment methods are not helping, contact your dental professional for advice on how to remedy the problem. There are also some dental procedures that may be able to alleviate your pain. If your sensitivity is caused by tooth decay, then your dentist may recommend a crown or inlay. In the most severe cases of tooth sensitivity, a root canal could be a solution. 
If you are dealing with tooth sensitivity and need help, contact our Chicago dentists at the Art of Modern Dentistry at (312) 585-2079 or visit our website to schedule an appointment today.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
