Inconsistencies in your daily oral hygiene routine and frequently consuming acidic beverages can affect the mineral density of your tooth enamel. Over time, the microscopic pores on the surface of your tooth enamel can start to expand. This can expose the sensitive dentin layer inside each tooth causing heightened sensitivity problems with multiple teeth.
This is even more likely to occur if you don’t have daily access to municipal tap water or your regular brand of toothpaste doesn’t include added fluoride.
If Dr. Anthony Gonzalez suspects your tooth sensitivity problems are related to weakened tooth enamel he might recommend having a fluoride treatment administered at his dental office in Corpus Christi, Texas. This fluoride treatment will bolster the mineral density of your teeth to help reduce sensation in your teeth.
Then he might also prescribe daily use fluoride supplements. This often comes in the form of a concentrated fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash. You should apply this to your teeth right before you go to sleep each night or at a time when you can abstain from eating, or drinking for at least half an hour.
