Desensitising Treatment at Coniston Dental Practice: Relieving Tooth Sensitivity
3 September 2023
Dealing with tooth sensitivity can be uncomfortable and affect your daily life. Whether it’s a sharp pain when consuming hot or cold foods, or discomfort during brushing, tooth sensitivity can impact your overall oral health. Fortunately, Coniston Dental Practice offers advanced desensitising treatments to alleviate this issue and help you regain your comfort.
Understanding Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity occurs when the protective enamel layer of your teeth wears down, exposing the underlying dentin and nerve endings. This can lead to discomfort when encountering temperature changes or certain foods. Factors like aggressive brushing, gum recession, and dental issues can contribute to sensitivity.
The Role of Desensitising Treatment
Desensitising treatments focus on reducing tooth sensitivity and enhancing oral well-being. Coniston Dental Practice offers a range of effective treatments tailored to your needs. These treatments work by blocking nerve pathways or strengthening the enamel to alleviate discomfort.
Types of Desensitising Treatments
- Fluoride Application: Professional fluoride treatment helps strengthen enamel and reduce sensitivity. It forms a protective layer over your teeth, reducing exposure to external triggers.
- Desensitising Toothpaste: Specially formulated toothpaste can help block pain signals and provide relief. Regular use can lead to a significant reduction in sensitivity over time.
- Dental Sealants: Sealants are thin coatings applied to the tooth’s surface to provide a barrier against temperature changes and plaque buildup, reducing sensitivity.
- Gum Grafting: For cases of gum recession, gum grafting can cover exposed tooth roots, reducing sensitivity and enhancing gum health.
- Consultation: Your journey to a comfortable smile begins with a thorough examination at Coniston Dental Practice. The dentist will assess the cause and severity of your sensitivity.
- Tailored Treatment: Based on the assessment, a personalised desensitising treatment plan will be crafted to address your specific needs.
- Treatment Application: The chosen treatment, whether fluoride application, sealants, or others, will be administered with precision and care.
- Post-Treatment Care: You’ll receive guidance on how to maintain your improved oral comfort and prevent sensitivity in the future.
Benefits of Desensitising Treatment
- Pain Relief: Say goodbye to the discomfort that tooth sensitivity brings. Desensitising treatments aim to provide long-lasting pain relief.
- Enhanced Oral Health: By addressing the root cause of sensitivity, these treatments contribute to better overall oral health.
- Improved Quality of Life: Enjoy your favourite foods and drinks without wincing in pain, leading to an improved quality of life.

What Our Patients Say
Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.
Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁
Honestly after 10 years of never going to dentist due to fear, im so happy i came here after my sisters recommendation. Helena is amazing, she made me feel at ease, was very patient with me. Finally i can go to dentist without a complete meltdown.Thank you so much for helping me.

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
Wonderfull dentist and hygenist services here.. used to come as a kid and after a recent visit with my mother with disability issues I have chosen to get back on their books.. Everyone from front of house through to the doctors has been so pleasant to deal with making what could possibly be something quite stressful nice and simple
