How to Deal with Teeth Sensitivity after a Teeth Whitening Procedure
Teeth sensitivity is one of the major side effects of the teeth whitening procedure. Below are ways you can deal with it to make it bearable:
- Before you go for the teeth whitening session, build up your resistance to sensitivity be using a sensitivity toothpaste. This should begin one week before so that by the time you go for the session; the outcome will not result in too much sensitivity.
- Continue with the use of the sensitive toothpaste after the treatment and when the sensitivity cools off, you can get back to using your normal toothpaste.
- Brush your teeth with a soft toothbrush and rinse off with warm water after brushing. This will reduce the sensitivity.
- After brushing, let the toothpaste last a little longer in your mouth to give it time to continue working on the sensitive teeth.
- Avoid taking very hot or very cold drinks immediately after the treatment as these will cause intense pain on the already sensitive teeth.
- Drink using a straw rather than letting the drinks pass through the freshly whitened teeth. This will also prevent the teeth from getting into contact with substances that will alleviate the sensitivity.
- If the pain becomes unbearable even after trying the above means, you can use pain relievers to help in easing the pain. Ibuprofen will be the right choice in this instance.
