How We Can Help
The white outermost layer of the tooth is the enamel. It forms a strong barrier that shields the inner layers of your teeth from the effects of acids and plaque. It also protects the sensitive inner layers of your teeth from foods and drinks that are very hot or very cold. When the enamel becomes thin, it does not perform its shielding function quite as well, resulting in sensitive teeth.
If you are having problems with tooth sensitivity, it can be quite jarring. For patients having a difficult time, we recommend Seal & Protect. We can apply Seal & Protect to your teeth at a special appointment or at your next cleaning. As its name implies, we brush this professional grade solution onto each individual tooth experiencing sensitivity in order to seal the enamel and to protect the tooth from pain.
It takes very little time and the soothing effects can be felt immediately.
