Got Sore Teeth After a Dental Treatment? Here’s How to Care for Them

Posted .

If you have sore teeth after a dental restoration treatment, then you’re probably looking for ways to treat or relieve that soreness. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to achieve that comfort you deserve. Our dentist, Dr. Bo Macdonald, is happy to help you by telling you all about them!

First, gently scrub your smile as you brush. All you need to do is move your brush in a circular motion along the tooth’s surface and avoid applying too much pressure. This can help you remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth without causing too much discomfort.

Second, use a soft technique when flossing. You can do this by gently sliding the floss between the teeth when cleaning the crevices of your smile. When the floss is in place, carefully slide it along the sides of each tooth and be cautious around the gums.

Third, use toothpaste that caters to sensitivity. This paste can toughen the tooth enamel and block the channels that lead to the tooth nerves. This can help you reduce tooth sensitivity and return to strong and healthy teeth.
