Sensitive Teeth Teeth Whitening

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Office
Teeth whitening is an excellent solution to discolored teeth, but not everyone is open to it. Those with sensitive teeth worry about their teeth becoming weak and painful after the procedure. However, teeth whitening does not always result in sensitivity, and there are ways to minimize this, some of which we've outlined below. Opt for Professional Teeth Whitening Not all whitening treatments are created equal, and some result in more sensitivity than others. Over-the-counter whitening products can make sensitive teeth worse because of the high concentration of peroxide or other active ingredients. Those with sensitive teeth should opt for professional teeth whitening services since experienced dentists can discuss different options, as well as take measures to minimize sensitivity. At Reich Dental Center, Dr. Robin Reich, DDS and Dr. Kristin Cooney, DMD do just this. Aftercare Sometimes, sensitivity is inevitable. You can then do your best to follow aftercare instructions. Aftercare is important following all whitening treatments, but this is essential for those with sensitive teeth. This includes avoiding cold food and drinks after the procedure – say no to ice cream and milkshakes for the time being and your teeth will thank you. Fluoride In addition to fluoride rinses and gels, you can also use fluoride toothpaste. At the very least, make sure that you are using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth – they need time to recover after the procedure. You can also opt for toothpaste formulated with potassium nitrate since research has shown that the ingredient is likely to reduce sensitivity after teeth whitening. Get a Soft-Bristled Toothbrush Soft-bristle toothbrushes can save you from a lot of discomfort when brushing your teeth. The bristles aren't harsh on your gums and teeth and can lessen pain. Also, be sure not to brush too aggressively – be gentle with your teeth. Keep these tips in mind if you're considering teeth whitening. If you'd like to know more about the procedure and your options, call us at 770-435-5450 and we'll be sure to help....
