What should you do if your smile feels sensitive over the holidays? Well, if it feels sensitive right this minute and you’re worried about it, then you should probably pick up the phone to contact our Livonia, MI team! However, what if your tooth sensitivity happens to crop up once the excitement, travel, parties, and more have begun? Is there anything you can do to make your teeth feel a bit better, to avoid any additional aggravation, and to feel like you have a plan in place, so you can allow yourself to relax and have fun? Why, of course there is!
Plan To See Us Immediately After
You should really plan to see us right after the holidays if you are dealing with tooth sensitivity. Why is that, you ask? Shouldn’t you just wait to see if the sensitivity turns into some serious pain? Nope! Actually, seeing us as soon as you can when you notice any type of discomfort is the best choice. The earlier we help you once a problem has begun, this usually means there’s less potential damage and an easier solution. You may even find out your smile is perfectly healthy but you just need some care tips.
Use Toothpaste For Sensitivity Instead
Over the holidays, if you are dealing with tooth sensitivity, do yourself a very easy favor. Head to the drugstore and purchase toothpaste that’s been made for sensitivity. Make sure, too, that it has been approved by the ADA (you will see a seal of acceptance from the American Dental Association on the package) and use this instead. Don’t switch back and forth with other toothpaste. We remind you that consistent use leads to results.
Just Be Careful With Food Temperatures And Textures!
Over your holiday experience, if you notice that you are dealing with tooth sensitivity, make a simple decision to avoid anything that might matters worse. Generally speaking, this means don’t eat anything extremely crunchy or hard. It also means you should be mindful of temperature extremes. Anything very hot or cold might hurt, so skip it and stick with neutral temps instead.
