(HealthDay News) -- Sensitive teeth can be very painful, especially while you're eating something hot or cold.
To combat tooth sensitivity, the mouthhealthy.org website suggests:
- Using a special toothpaste designed to reduce sensitivity.
- Asking your dentist about a fluoride gel to strengthen tooth enamel.
- Using dental bonding, an inlay or a crown to correct problems that may have triggered sensitivity.
- Getting a gum graft, if gum loss is the cause of the problem.
