Tooth Desensitizing Agents
When you regularly visit the dentist, you can better help ensure that your oral health remains in good standing. Too many people think that the worst that can happen when they skip dentist visits is a “little cavity”. In reality, there are many disorders and conditions that could become quite serious if left untreated that can be quickly and fairly easily treated by our professionals. Even more than that, however, is the fact that many people live with issues that could be easily remedied. Tooth sensitivity, for example, is something that can negatively affect your quality of life. Instead of just living with teeth that hurt, you should consider giving us a visit! At Excellent Dental Specialists, we believe that your comfort, as well as your health, matter. That’s why we are happy to offer tooth desensitizing agents for your needs.
What are tooth desensitizing agents?When you have sensitive teeth, you experience pain when eating a variety of different things. One common symptom, for example, is temperature sensitivity that causes your teeth to hurt when eating or drinking very cold or very hot things. This can become a serious issue as the condition progresses, and could eventually affect your diet as well as your happiness.
While there are a variety of OTC toothpastes that provide relief to some people, the truth is that individuals with extremely sensitive teeth might not benefit from using them. This is where tooth desensitizing agents come in. Tooth desensitizing agents can be used to help reduce the sensitivity of your teeth so that you don’t have to worry about eating or drinking.
How can tooth desensitizing agents help me?Think about how much you love iced coffee or ice cream—or anything particularly cold—and how much you wish you could have more of it. Unfortunately, however, your teeth are sensitive and cause you a significant amount of pain whenever you try to eat something cold. Because of this, you have had to give up your favorite treats in order to limit the amount of discomfort your teeth cause you. Eventually, this sensitivity could increase and leave you anxious about eating almost anything.
This is where tooth desensitizing agents can help you. Tooth desensitizing agents are the best option for patients struggling with extremely sensitive teeth. They can help reduce the amount of discomfort you feel, which better enables you to live happily and pain-free.
Are tooth desensitizing agents safe?Almost anyone who takes their health seriously is cautious about new treatments—and that’s a good thing! In this particular instance, you have nothing to fear. Tooth desensitizing agents are safe for use and will not harm your teeth. Their purpose is to give you stronger teeth that are less sensitive, not to cause any additional issues! That means that you can use them with peace of mind, and do not need to worry about their effects on your oral health.
