As for how to get going with stopping that sensitivity in its tracks, our advice is key!

You Still Need To Care For Your Teeth

Yes, your smile may feel uncomfortable. Pressure, heat, or coldness may irritate your sensitive teeth. However, you still need to care for your smile! So, don’t stop brushing, flossing, and rinsing because everything doesn’t feel 100 percent copasetic. Instead, be very gentle and thorough. If you feel like this is difficult, do the following: Call us to schedule an urgent visit and make a change to sensitivity toothpaste immediately. Remember, you don’t want to neglect your smile due to a little discomfort, only to create additional concerns.

Sensitivity Toothpaste May Be More Complex Than You Think

Yes, it really does help! When you switch to sensitivity toothpaste to address your sensitive teeth, you’re on the road toward serious relief. That is, as long as you use it each time you brush for multiple days, if not weeks, before you notice the full extent of improvement. You may need to continue using it, as well. It doesn’t numb your teeth on contact. It works over time. Learn more about what’s up with your smile, how this works, and what you need to do by coming in!
