Bellaire Family Dentist: Tooth Sensitivity Dental Treatments Announced

The latest service update at the Dentist 101 of Houston clinic ensures that patients can access the most effective and fast-acting treatments for tooth sensitivity. The dentists explain that although this common issue can occur naturally over time as enamel erodes, it has become more prevalent among patients of all ages due to the increasing popularity of at-home whitening kits.

With tooth sensitivity currently affecting an estimated 1 in 8 Americans, Dentist 101 of Houston is now encouraging patients in Bellaire who are experiencing symptoms of the condition to schedule an appointment with its experienced team.

The dentists educate Bellaire patients about the causes of tooth sensitivity, stating that when layers of enamel and cementum wear away or are damaged, the dentin becomes exposed and allows for the nerves within the teeth to become aggravated by acidic, hot, or cold food and drink. This can be caused by tooth decay and gum disease, two of the most common oral health concerns in the US.

The Dentist 101 team will devise a custom treatment plan for each patient. In some cases, they can prescribe a desensitizing toothpaste which works by blocking nerve sensations that manifest as pain. Alternatively, the practice’s team of experienced dental technicians can restore decayed, broken, or misshapen teeth with composite fillings.

In more severe cases, sensitive, damaged teeth can be replaced with life-like crowns, which have the added benefit of improving the visual appeal of the patient’s smile. For the longest-lasting effects, the team can provide root canal treatment which involves extracting the affected tooth’s soft tissue and nerves.
