There a few things a dentist can try to relieve your pain. To begin with, he can apply fluoride to your teeth to reinforce the enamel. If he suspects that the sensitivity is caused by exposed teeth roots, he can apply a special sealant on the exposed areas. Should these methods bring no relief, he may perform a root canal to end sensitivity once and for all.
