Do you have sore teeth after a dental treatment? If so, you’re not alone. Many people feel sore after a dental filling, dental crown, dental bridge, and other dental treatment. This is typically because the teeth aren’t quite used to the pressure and attention involved in treatment. To help you treat and relieve your sore teeth in Bakersfield, California, our dentist, Dr. James C. Ma, has some helpful tips for you!

First, be gentle as you brush your teeth. Make sure you use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gently scrub the front, back, and top surfaces of each tooth. This can help you clean your smile without causing too much discomfort.

Second, be soft as you floss. This means you shouldn’t force the floss between your teeth. Gently slide the floss into place and carefully clean the crevice. Make sure you are gentle and cautious around the gums.

Third, brush your chompers with desensitizing toothpaste. This toothpaste can strengthen your tooth enamel and block the channels that lead to the tooth nerves. This helps reduce tooth sensitivity and discomfort.
