Desensitizers for particularly sensitive teeth have made progress in the improvement of pain management associated with dental procedures. A desensitizer can be applied directly to the teeth to provide a coating that will shield against susceptibility to painful sensations. It may make injections unnecessary, or work along with medications, for added alleviation.

Anything that causes tooth enamel to wear away can result in increased sensitivity which may be aggravated by certain dental treatments such as cleaning, whitening, or even routine exams. Your cosmetic dentist in Centennial may suggest home treatments to use between dental visits.
