Tooth sensitivity affects most people who decide to whiten their teeth. For most, it is mild and lasts only a few hours after the treatment, whereas for others the degree of discomfort is greater. In general, depending on how dry your mouth is and the condition of your teeth, tooth sensitivity after a teeth whitening session can be minimal or significant.
For some people visiting the dentist is a big decision, even if it involves a relatively harmless procedure such as teeth whitening. Luckily, at Care Dental Platinum we have developed the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique TM. This innovative approach to dentistry and dental treatment is a combination of psychology, sedation dentistry and painless dental technology. It was developed by Dr Bashar Al-Naher, a talented dentist for nervous patients in London, and has received the award for ‘Best Treatment of Nervous Patients’ in the Private Dentistry Awards of 2017.
Whitening sensitive teeth painlessly
For most patients, tooth sensitivity can linger for several hours after a whitening session, which means there is time to prevent the pain by using a specialised desensitised gel. Where anxiety is a huge burden, our dentist for nervous patients in London will use the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique TM. The simultaneous use of ‘happy gas’, guided imagery and painless dental technology will help patients feel at ease throughout the whitening process, ensuring smooth and effective treatment.
Dealing with sensitivity after teeth whitening treatment
To try and minimise the discomfort that may be caused by teeth whitening, you can build resistance to sensitivity by brushing with a special toothpaste. Only use soft-bristled toothbrushes and brush your teeth gently using lukewarm water. Sensitive teeth do not agree with very hot or very cold water. For the same reason, you are advised to steer away from hot or cold drinks for a few days after the treatment. If your teeth are still sensitive after a few days, it is imperative to see your dentist for nervous patients in London. We will try to reduce pain and discomfort by finding a solution that works for you.
