Understanding And Managing The Pain

Are you experiencing sharp pain or discomfort when you consume hot or cold foods and beverages? Does the sensation of biting or chewing cause you pain? These symptoms may be indicative of sensitive teeth, a common dental condition that affects many individuals.

Fortunately, there are various sensitive teeth treatments available, including cosmetic dentistry procedures such as tooth whitening and crowns. If you live in the Ellenbrook area, there are dental clinics such as Coolamon Dental that offer emergency dentist services, dental care, and cosmetic dentistry treatments to manage your sensitive teeth effectively.

What Causes Sensitive Teeth?

Tooth sensitivity occurs when the dentin, the layer beneath the tooth enamel, becomes exposed. The dentin contains tiny tubules that lead to nerve endings, and when exposed, these nerves can become irritated, resulting in pain or discomfort.

Here are some of the most common causes of sensitive teeth:

Brushing too hard

Brushing your teeth with excessive force or using a toothbrush with hard bristles can erode tooth enamel and expose the dentin layer.

Gum disease

Gum disease can cause the gum line to recede, exposing the dentin layer.

Tooth decay

Cavities can also cause dentin exposure, leading to tooth sensitivity.

Teeth grinding

Clenching or grinding your teeth can wear down tooth enamel, making the dentin more susceptible to exposure.

Tooth whitening

Some tooth whitening treatments can cause temporary tooth sensitivity.

Dental Emergency Clinic in Ellenbrook

If you are experiencing sensitive teeth, it is important to visit a dentist at Coolamon Dental to determine the underlying cause and receive proper treatment.

In case of dental emergencies, it is important to know that an emergency dentist in Ellenbrook is open 6 days a week to provide emergency dental treatment. If you experience a dental emergency, such as a fractured tooth or tooth fragments, rinse your mouth with warm water and contact Coolamon Dental immediately.

We can take an impression of your tooth and prepare a new tooth or crown as soon as possible, depending on the type of dental issue you are experiencing.


Treatment Options for Sensitive Teeth

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged tooth, protecting it from further decay and reducing sensitivity.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help whiten discoloured or stained teeth, which can also reduce sensitivity.


If you grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth from further damage.

Desensitising Toothpaste

Desensitising toothpaste contains compounds that block nerve endings, reducing pain and sensitivity.

Dental Fillings

If you have a cavity or a chipped tooth, your dentist may use a filling to repair the damage and reduce sensitivity.

Root Canal Treatment

If your tooth sensitivity is caused by infection or damage to the nerves inside the tooth, your dentist in Ellenbrook may recommend root canal treatment to remove the damaged tissue.

Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing regularly can help prevent further damage to your teeth and reduce sensitivity.

Ways To Reduce And Manage Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity can be a frustrating and uncomfortable experience. Here are some tips to help you manage and reduce it:

Be Gentle When Brushing

Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and brushing gently can help prevent further damage to your enamel. Avoid applying too much pressure when brushing your teeth to reduce sensitivity.

Switch to a Sensitive Toothpaste

Fluoride toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth can help reduce tooth sensitivity by strengthening the enamel. Look for a toothpaste that contains potassium nitrate, which can help reduce pain signals from the nerves.

Floss Daily

Flossing daily helps remove plaque and bacteria between your teeth and along your gum line. Plaque buildup can lead to gum disease, which can cause tooth sensitivity.

Avoid Acidic Foods and Drinks

Citrus fruits, soda, and other acidic foods and drinks can wear away at your enamel, causing sensitivity. Limit your intake of acidic foods and drinks to help prevent further damage.

Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene

Stick to a proper dental hygiene routine, including flossing, brushing your teeth, and regular dental checkups, to help keep your teeth healthy and free from sensitivity.

Use a Mouthguard

Grinding your teeth at night can cause further damage to your enamel, leading to sensitivity. Using a mouthguard can help prevent this damage.

Consider Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can help improve the appearance of your teeth and boost your confidence. At Coolamon Dental Centre, we offer both surgery-based and home-based teeth whitening treatments.

See Your Dentist

If you are experiencing severe or persistent tooth sensitivity, it is important to see your Ellenbrook dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Our experienced team at Coolamon Dental can provide emergency dental treatment for issues like toothache, broken teeth, tooth abscesses, and more. We also offer dental implants, dentures, and fillings to repair tooth structures and replace missing teeth.

Everyone working at Coolamon Dental are so helpful & friendly. Dr. Gen is so patient with me knowing I am terrified of going to the dentist. The ladies in reception put you at ease as soon as you come in the door. They are so friendly & have a laugh with you which helps when you are so nervous. The dentist explains everything that's going to be done so there are no surprises. The rooms are absolutely spotless. I now don't mind going to this dentist. Can highly recommend Coolamon Dental.

Shaun and Jenny were fantastic.
I came in for a toothache and they were able to fit me in. I'm a nervous patient and Shaun did an amazing job of calming my nerves and explaining the issue and options and then sorted the problem with minimal discomfort.

I'll be back for regular checkups!
