Tackling tooth pain

Tackling tooth pain

(NAPS)-Good news for the 82 percent of people who experience dental sensitivity: It's easily treated in the dentist's office and at home.
Sensitivity can come from tooth whitening, enamel erosion due to acidic sodas and sports drinks (even sugar-free varieties), orthodontic procedures, hard toothbrushes, teeth clenching and periodontal disease.
To help, you can ask your dentist to clean and polish your teeth with a paste containing an ingredient made of natural elements found in teeth (calcium, phosphate and silica) that can immediately relieve sensitivity by forming a mineral layer barrier on the tooth's surface. The paste, NUPRO Sensodyne Prophylaxis Paste with NovaMin, blocks nerve endings from receiving stimulus that triggers sensitivity.
In addition to the dental office treatment, your dentist may prescribe the take-home Sensodyne NUPRO Professional Toothpaste to add a remineralization treatment for healthier and stronger teeth.
You don't have to let sensitivity or fear of pain keep you from regular dental checkups and a healthy, pain-free smile.
