Tooth Sensitivity Toothpaste Might Obscure Symptoms of a Condition Requiring Dental Care

Posted .

Discomfort in your teeth when you consume certain foods and beverages can impact your lifestyle choices, as well as your enjoyment of life. While you might find some relief from a special toothpaste, chances are the underlying cause can worsen, leading to more significant oral health problems.

Tooth sensitivity could potentially by demineralization or tooth enamel erosion. The pervasive nature of the bacteria in your mouth and the effects of acidic food and drinks you consume, can corrode tooth enamel minerals on a microscopic level. In time this can cause microscopic channels to form through the enamel to the sensitive dentin layer of the tooth.

To improve a situation like this, Dr. Carrie Sessom can administer a fluoride treatment at his Jenks, Oklahoma clinic. This might also be followed up by you using prescription fluoride supplements and brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.

Untreated cavities on multiple teeth can also be a root cause of tooth sensitivity. Having Dr. Carrie Sessom treat and repair the tooth decay will reduce the symptoms and prevent more serious dental conditions from occurring.

If you live in the Jenks, Oklahoma area and you are struggling with tooth sensitivity problems, you should call 918-770-0027 to have if professionally diagnosed and treated by Dr. Carrie Sessom.
